Games: Bridge

"Bridge is a sport and, as such, your place is here like all other sports." The words of Juan Antonio Samaranch, President of the IOC, spoken in Lausanne at the inauguration of the IOC Bridge Grand Prix last year. With Duplicate Bridge due to be played at the 2002 Winter Olympics as a demonstration sport, and hopefully as an official discipline in 2006, it now becomes necessary for the British government to recognise it as such, as is the case in many other countries. Changes will be required to the 1937 Physical Training and Recreation Act, and the National Lottery Act 1993, so that sports of the mind fall within the meaning of these acts. After all, the brain is part of the body!

Sport: No place like a permanent Olympic home

It is a great comfort to anyone keen to heap derision upon the wretches who have turned free-loading into an Olympic event to know that we can pile the insults high and be safe in the warmth of full justification and, for those of us who have long hinted that dirty work was afoot, sweet vindication as well. Some members of the International Olympic Committee are so deeply in disgrace that no brickbat is too wounding and no substance too noxious to hurl in their direction.
