Your nominations needed NOW for the Australian team at the new Olympic Event of share ramping?

By Tom Winnifrith | Thursday 4 August 2016


In an article earlier today I suggested that my good friend David Lenigas was a slam dunk to win the individual gold medal in the new Olympic Sport of share ramping. But I was concerned that the recent poor form of long term stalwarts  of the Roos, such as Pirate Pete Landau and Andy Carroll, means that the Auzzie team in the freestyle share ramping relay event was in deep trouble. Indeed...

There are suggestions coming out of Perth that Pirate Pete may have failed a doping test - that is to say he could no longer find anyone dopey enough to buy shares off him. So the five man Oz team for Rio has a captain in Big Dave but who else can make the up the squad?

Which Aussies operating in the AIM sponsored trials are on flying form for all round ramping, polishing turd releases, as you do in hurling, before sending them down the wires as shining stones? We need four more players to join Big Dave in Rio...nominate away in the comments section below.

I think Dave Whitby of Andalas is captaining the Canadian team but I know he has lived out East for a while so may be eligible to play for Oz. There might be a touch of the Zola Budd on that one can anyone clarify that situation? The games open soon, Australia needs your help. Comment away....
