Pancake Tossing: An Olympic Sport?

Pancake Tossing: An Olympic Sport?

Our founder Zoe has always been fit. I've known her to sleep with a pair of trainers next to the bed ready for an early morning run and she's dragged me to many an exercise class over the years. But I've yet to find a sport or exercise that I'm actually good at.

My little legs mean I'll never be a top runner, my lack of rhythm means that a weekly Zumba class is the closest I'll get to dancing on stage and my lack of balance means I struggle with even a basic tree pose.

Now I know it's not the winning but the taking part that's important. And don't get me wrong, I love that everyone in my Zumba class burns more calories by laughing at my exaggerated dance moves! But I've never watched the Olympics and imagined myself competing...until now!

On Tuesday, Brussels hosted the first "Olympics for Seniors" which included throwing a ball of wool, wheelchair relays and tossing pancakes! I don't want to blow my own trumpet, but I've eaten enough pancakes to have nailed my flipping technique.

The event promoted outdoor activities for men and women in local care homes and one of the key messages was "happiness has every age", something we can all get behind!

Sadly, the event was restricted to over 75's. But that means I've got nearly 50 years to perfect the other events and grab myself a gold!

Now where did I leave that ball of wool...
