    Maybe you should lobby for Australian Boomerang as an Olympic sport.

    "There are different types of throwing contests: accuracy of return; Aussie round; trick catch; maximum time aloft; fast catch; and endurance"

    ref: wikipedia on boomerang.

    details of these are at

    http://beholders.org/body/unusualsports/162-boomerangs.html

    including a video on how to throw them.

    Eh, don't knock it. You have almost twice as many medals as we do, for only a quarter or so more people.

    Ok, granted, for a nation as downright obsessed with sports as the Convicts, that is disastrous.

    You're onto something there. Lets face it : any sport can make it at the Olympics with a good enough PR campaign.

    On the contrary. There would still be the wedges that your Liberal Party drives between the people.

    The 2012 Summer Olympics and its consequences have come to an end for
    Sergei Ovchinnikov, who was the coach of Russia's women's volleyball team,
    or, more compellingly, Sergei Ovchinnikov (age 43) has come to a tragic end.
    Reportedly, he was found dead by hanging, an apparent suicide.

    Reportedly, Sergei Ovchinnikov was heavily criticised in Russia after his team's
    disappointing performance at the Olympics. One of his friends (another Russian
    volleyball coach) said that Ovchinnikov 'took the Olympics very personally'.

    It's called the 'Olympic Games', but is it always 'just a game'?
