Why stop there, go for the Olympics

Sydney Morning Herald

Apparently shearing should be a commonwealth sport…why stop there, why not get it into the Olympics. Perhaps Colin King can be enlisted to promote the sport world wide along Parekura Horomia and then parliament have get some use out of the pair of them:

Federated Farmers of New Zealand spokeswoman Jeanette Maxwell says shearing’s time has come: “Surely, time has come to elevate shearing’s sporting status to the ultimate world stage? One way would be to make shearing a demonstration sport at a Commonwealth Games, if not the Olympics itself … top shearers are athletes who take it to another level.” Cue the boys up the back: “Shearing? Shearing? I’m not shearing my sheep with anyone!”
