Ping Pong P0t, of course, would have been competing for Kampuchea, in every event, as he was the only one left.

I think my sister and I used to play ping pong pot as kids - taping yoghurt pot pockets to the corners of the coffee table, and using ping pong balls and a walking stick for a cue....

rhythmic archery

Two competitors to a team. One shoots, one performs artistic routines, throwing up targets as they twirl, backflip etc.

Horseback javelin throwing. At targets, natch.

Like Kirst's horseback archery suggestion, I think that Mongolia already does that.  I'm sure I've seen this on some Michael Palin type programme, I've done a bit of googling to find it but without success.

Google Grozer Bows; he's a Hungarian bowmaker who mentions horse archery on his website.

Jack Thurston suggested (on twitter) combining archery and cycling for a sort of summer biathlon, which I reckon would be a great one.


I combine them (but it's a bit of a pain transporting a bow and 28" arrows about)

How about pole vaulting with fencing foils? Best suited to only but the lightest competitors.

Indeed, but fencing isn't jousting. Completely different discipline!

<so, what would I allow - ah yes ...>

Fencing on the 4" beam - much more elegant than the pugil-sticks in Gladiators.
