Alert the IOC

Noting the ongoing devotion to mandatory skimpy costumes for womens beach volleyball at the Olympics, perhaps the International Olympic Committee should pay heed to another girly sporting endeavour held recently in Sydney. In the largest stiletto heel running race ever held, 265 competitors donned three-inch heels and competed in a free-for-all dash along an 80 metre course in Circular Quay. Perhaps London could attempt to break the record with a similar race at Canary Wharf in 2012? Or if you want to make it interesting, what about running on the cobblestones at Covent Garden? You might need a few ambulances and a battalion of cobblers on hand, mind.
