Sir: Having been bored senseless by the countless showings of Torvill and Dean's performances over the weekend, I find myself wondering if something that resembles synchronised swimming the wrong way up, is really a sport.

If it is, then the sooner they introduce a freestyle hokey-cokey event into the summer Olympics, the better. Failing this, perhaps the high jump bar could be set initially at eight feet and then progressively lowered as the world's best limbo dancers 'clear' the height.

Yours faithfully,
