OVER 55? DREAMING ABOUT FITNESS?
I introduced the first new Kitchen Olympics event just recently.
BLISTER PACK TABLET PROJECTILES
This is the second and I know you are going to enjoy this one.
This is the newest and will become the most popular very quickly, in my humble opinion.
WHAT MAKES A HIGH-PERFORMANCE COS LETTUCE KICK?
The judges have agreed that:
- points will be awarded for the suddenness of the cos appearing
- the height from which it falls
- the connection of the competitor’s foot with the hapless vegetable
- the follow-through of leg actions
- the distance the lettuce travels.
CURRENT WORLD RECORD HOLDER
I proudly hold the current world record for the distance a cos lettuce head can be kicked when falling out of a packet being removed from the fridge.
There were bonus points for the leaves to land like confetti.
It landed 2 cm (0.787″) from the cat’s feeding bowl that was in use at the time.
For those interested in the purpose behind the kick; it was to stop the cos from hitting the floor, of course.
THE FUTURE OF COS LETTUCE KICKING?
I am sure there is a group of competitors getting themselves prepped for this important sport.
You may all be champions in your own right in kitchens across the world.
I am seeking sponsorship from Woolworths for this new and emerging sports trend.
For the very affordable cost of AUD$3, there is a ready replacement if your first cos heart starts to show signs of wear during training.
We can kick those hearts all over the kitchen without warning or prep.
Increasing our hip flexibility and ankle mobility with very little effort and right in the comfort of our kitchens!
ANYONE CAN PLAY – EVERYONE IS WELCOME.
Cats are unlikely to join in – well mine won’t.
Dogs may enjoy the fetch aspect but measurements will need to be made very quickly if you want to record your personal bests (PB).
Boomers probably have a head start on suitability given their life experience and occasionally creaky knees and hips.
Please send word when your cos kicking heats are starting in your neighbourhoods and kitchens.
Every event that we can bring to a wider audience will attract the attention of ………..someone.
