|The torch is being driven around by a sugar drink company?|
Major reason #1: I can't bear the injustice of it. I know the incredible work that athletes went through to get to that point. They are all world class. On one given day, given one chance, where the slightest cough or gust of wind can alter the outcome, most of them will not win. I can't bear to watch that. My heart cries for them.
Minor reason #1: I don't have a telly and find watching sport boring.

I had 20 minutes before the torch was supposedly coming by - within a km of the house, according to the map I'd seen. So I had a quick glance again at the website and got ready to bolt out the door, heading for the North Downs Way.
As they say in Australia, with a "you-lose" game show buzzer sound: Baw-Baw.

Is driving an Olympic sport?
As an athlete, I am embarrassed.
My rellies went over to the nearest town to see it and they gave me these photos. There was also a Samsung bus with dancing girls, to go with the Lloyds dancing boys. Maybe bus dancing is an Olympic sport.
