TOKYO, Japan (The Adobo Chronicles, Tokyo Bureau) – Today, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) made a stunning announcement.
Beginning in 2024, the Olympics will include a new sport: knitting!
Initially, Olympic knitting will include three divisions: Bonnet Division, Classic Sweater Division, and the Table Runner Division. Medals will be awarded to athletes who could finish knitting in record time, with bonus points to the best design.
The IOC asked openly-gay British Olympian and gold medalist Tom Daley to model for its upcoming sports promotion. In the promo video, Daley is seen knitting a bonnet while watching the diving event in Tokyo.
How appropriate that the Knitting sport will make its debut at the (gay) Paris Olympics!
