In exciting news for Australia, it seems likely the Cabinet of the Australian Federal Government will be a surprise inclusion in the Australian Olympic team.
Australia has always struggled in gymnastics in Olympics against other nations – while our teams have trained hard, many other countries have had considerable advantage in training, coaching and funding for their athletes in these sports.
No longer: our Federal cabinet is extremely well funded and has an excellent coach in Tony Abbott, and so is likely to take out a clean sweep in all gymnastics events featuring backflips.
“This is something we can all be proud of”, said a source who wished to remain nameless. “Tony has been hammering the backflip message home for some time to his colleagues, and now they’re all starting to become experts themselves. Why, just this morning, the education minister executed a triple backflip with a three-and-a-half
pyne I mean pike twist.”
The only cause for concern for Australia at the moment is whether there’ll be sufficient women in cabinet to allow adequate representation for that gender in the Olympics. It’s possible that our Prime Minister for Women may choose to compete in those fields himself.
