3bt: More sporty stuff

Credit to Johanna Jackson, for a new British Record in the Olympic 20km walk.

Playing Badminton with Matt - outdoors first, then when the rain came we moved into the front room/toy store/laundry/spider cultivation ranch whereupon he staggered back for a forearm smash and fell over into his lego box.

Discovered the recent WIKF Karate World Championsips - more table topping, from Team England this time: 12 Gold, 8 Silver, 8 Bronze. Plus a Gold and a Silver for two Northern Irish Swimmers, were it Team GB. That's a third of the available Golds! I hope the BOA have the power to include Karate in 2012, it's one of the the biggest participation sports in the UK; wouldn't it be nice if they got a little bit of coverage - even BBC Sport let me down on this occasion.
