Going for Gold (in 2024)

  
Posy spotted the above article regarding attempts to make pétanque an Olympic sport in 2024 when France host the event. (Hopefully I’ll have got the hang of shooting by then and will be on the England team…one can but dream!)

Apparently, there are 30 million players of pétanque worldwide in over 272 federations across 162 countries! That’s a lot of competition…but, great to think there’s someone somewhere playing pétanque at all times.
