    I want to go to the olympics...

    What sport do you think I can succeed in when I'm 20 years old now and plan to train from now on. I'm a runner but only doing my first half marathon in september so maybe a marathon runner considering they can succeed at an older age. Any ideas anyone?

    Does bread buttering count as a sport?

    What about skeet shooting? Pretty sure that one does.

    Anyway, you can be or do anything you want, bb. You have the power of Focus's wuv! Which is roughly equivalent to 8004237 kWh. Also, y'know, legs and a brain.

    Hm. There are a lot of sports out there. I mean, you could go as an archer if you've got what it takes. I say try them out. Look at where your strong and weak points are. Relate that to whatever sports there are out there. Look at things like learning curves (gymnatics has a high learning curve, running relatively low). IDK. Do what you're good at. Because training is now your job, if you're serious.

    Do you also have buns of steel? Post pics so my colleague and I can make an assessment.

    Try them all. Do what you like the best, or what you have the most talent in.

    See, Lei? Maybe if you were as smooth as your old boy swimmer chicks would be under your desk instead of in Beijing.

    Also, jury says guilty. Rawr. Is Xena an Olympic sport? Because she should be, imo. Horseback riding, maybe? I'm told some people find it quite enjoyable.

    Horse riding enjoyable? Yes when you're trotting at an enjoyable pace rather than jumping over those things, I don't think they get the whole sexual satisfation at that level.

    Judging by some of the ****e that count as Olympic events at the moment I'd suggest practicing at something like the egg and spoon race or hop scotch as I imagine they'll be in there by 2012
