So, as you will know I was on my holidays in Poland a couple of weeks ago.
Mrs D_P has gone off to the village Dentist for an hour, I'm chilling on the front porch of the in-laws with a Tyskie.
Mrs D_P arrives in a Compact hatchback being driven by a fit looking lass with mousey colour hair.
Lots of blabbering takes place, I'm introduced and lo and behold turns out to be a local lass who was in line to be Polands' Archery contestant in Rio.
The team is announced next day and no fiteh. Uproar ensues and an investigation reveals that the Polish Coach had over-ridden the selectors and picked the number 5 (or 6) rated Bowgirl. It took about 10 minutes for Twitter to post pictures of the coach & #5 en flagrante.
One week later we get the news that an appeal had been lodged and the lass is off to Rio.
True Story. And bloody annoying because now I have to subscribe to the obscure sport channel that has the broadcast rights down here simply so the Mrs can watch 10 minutes of action at about 4am our time. Harumph
