Guru absolutely loved the first day of the London Olympics 2012 and hopes the North Korea, oops South Korea, flag mix-up is a sign of things to come. With all the stuffiness surrounding the corporate sponsorship of the Olympics and the intense professionalism of many of the athletes, Guru thinks this new cheeky approach to ceremony will inject a much needed sense of bathos to the Games.
Guru imagines this approach being taken in the medal ceremonies, with silly songs playing in the place of anthems and the flower girls squirting water in the faces of the winning athletes when they bend down to receive their medals. The marathon could be spiced up with comedy food and drinks provided in the place of sports drinks - perhaps custard pies could be thrown at the athletes. Guru has loads of ideas like this… could some of the discusses (disci? discees?) be replaced by cheap plates, in the hope that the athletes realise what’s going on only when they’ve launched the plate into the air. Pole vault poles could be replaced by broomsticks. One of the lanes in the 100m could have a hole in it, or lead off out of the stadium. Boris Johnson could run the anchor leg for Britian in the 4*400m… the possibilities are endless. Guru hopes that right now Seb Coe, David Beckham and the other Olympics rulers are coming up with their own ideas for making these the funniest Olympic Games ever!
If you have any ideas of your own, the comments section below is probably the best chance you have of making them a reality. Guru has reason* to believe that Seb Coe is a massive fan of the Guru blog.
*just because the Guru blog is so good.
