Saturday's Daily Telegraph magazine had a section on British Olympians who had won Gold.
Audley Harrison, who won Boxing Super Heavyweight gold at Sydney in 2000, is true to form unintentionally hilarious. First there is the usual hyperbole such as 'the Audley Harrison show' and the curious statement 'I'm a bit of a showman' - not in the ring you are not Audley. This gem though takes the biscuit:
"Boxing is still an amateur Olympic sport, but I hope it becomes professional so boxers will go back and try for Olympic gold a second time rather than just reinvent themselves in the professional field".
Given Audley has had the best part of 12 years to invent himself in the professional field (and is still to do so) the prospect of him returning to the amateur game to do so is - well, hilarious. It is almost a shame that the rules don't allow it..............
