Ok, here we go again, number sorted. It is not too large, a bit bigger than the previous one, but not that much. I might give a clue when we get somewhere near it, then again I might not ;-))

Well, apart from us hosting the Olympics in London very shortly, it seems to me that it's a LONG JUMP from beginning to end, with many HURDLES to pass, as we SAIL along, and try and keep on TRACK. But we can DISCUS that as we WRESTLE with the challenge while SWIMMING along, and if there is any info we can RELAY, we'll cross that FENCE when we come to it.

The last COMPETITOR to hold the BATON at the FINISHING POST will be the winner of the MARATHON :-)

Congrats Chris, I have a good idea. I was on the US Olympic Archery Team in '76. We could use my best score. That would be within the range.

The Olympics is on until the 12th August, I doubt this will last until the end of it. But yes it will have an Olympic connection.

I'm a volunteer Marshall for the Torch relay and both the mens and womens cycle races, and time trials, all of which pass through my town.
