Default What ho! Who needs Rio? Sportsmen dressed in vintage pinstripes and bowler hats unite for eccentric 'Chap' Olympiad

Quote:
Dozens of revellers gathered in Central London to watch competitors in the upper-crust Chap Olympiad
Competitors took part in games that involved them cycling around Bedford Square while pouring tea
Organisers say that points are awarded for 'sensational cravats' and 'immaculate trouser creases'
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-Olympiad.html


More tea, ma'am? Two competitors in the Chap's Olympiad in
London expertly pour tea while they cycle past a woman in a
pink vintage frock



Enjoying the sunshine: A man catches up with the programme
of the Olympiad while looking resplendent in vintage dress


Except for the beard that could be me.


Multi-tasking: One man in a fez balanced his penny-farthing bicycle
at the same time he sipped a jug of Pimms



Vintage style! Two dapper chaps enjoy a ride on Santander cycles
at the Olympiad



Poke and prod: One competitor jabbed another with his umbrella
as he cycled back
