Re: I should enter the olympics

Damn i'm good.

Just tripped over a cat while carrying a cup of coffee. I ended up performing a mid-air forward roll (somersault) and didn't spill a single drop of coffee, not even when I stuck my landing. I don't think i aggravated any of my back problems either which has to be worth bonus points.

So where do I sign up for the floor gymnastics competition in the 2012 London Olympics?

Well done for rescuing the coffee. (priorities)

That isnt a bad idea for a sport at all.  Gymnastic Floor Routine while carrying a liquid.  Points are deducted for spillages.

The Isle of Man could probably give you the nod for the Hop, Skip'n'Jump.

You'd have to be self financing, though.  And they don't allow tents in the Olympic Village....

Sounds like rhythmic gymnastics to me, only I think they use a ball.

First of all was the cat alright? And second you have not given the cat due credit for initiating your feat. Also you should be looking for sponsorship from the Coffee company.

Good effort ukscone - although according to internet rules we should really insist on pictures.

What is it with cats? They always land on their feet, so I guess they think that we can too. Anyway, this is defo an early candidate for thread of the week.
