There must be something on this Wikipedia list of sports that you have a photo of. Only one photo per person per week so make it a great one!

Do ladies in swimsuits drying themselves after a swim count?

Can't you find any men in the same situation, Sue? I'm sure that would be, ummm, far more suitable for this ...

Perhaps you can ask those firemen if they would pose for you in their swimsuits Sue.

OK, it is actually NOT on the wiki list, but surely highland games count? Here's my friend Greg doing the caber toss at our annual Scottish party.



You can click on the picture to see it in larger sizes, so you can, you know, actually see it.

Well, on the list, chess is listed as a "table sport," but this game isn't exactly on a table!

Although this gentleman wasn't competing in any sporting event at the time I took the photo, he could have been. He is demonstrating the fine art of throwing a spear Australian style.

Every October, the Sherlock Holmes Society of W.A. has their annual croquet day in the grounds of the University of Western Australia. The members attend in Victorian dress and we have a picnic. Here are two of our members (Maynooth on the right) playing croquet.

Tai Chi is also on that list, so here are the intrepid ladies of Tin Shui Wai at 7 am doing their daily dozen. I tried to catch the ladies in the corner who were doing strange things with red fans, but I got odd looks...anyway

Croquet appears popular in the north of England too. In a mile of road alongside Ullswater there are three croquet lawns outside two hotels.

But these are not popular just with the 2 legged locals & guests.

We went to "Bark at the Park" on Saturday, where they had lots of great dog activities, including this one, called Splash Dog. You can barely see the dog because she blends in with the desert bank behind her. Look how far she jumps!

You can see the concentration, and almost feel the tension, of these young soccer players as they watch a penalty kick being taken!

Great photos everyone!

I got to a Blue Jays game on the final day of the season. Here Tampa Bay's pitcher looks the runner back to first.



Looking at my scorecard, I can tell you that the runner is Hector Luna, and just after I took this photo he stole second, then scored on a single by Inglett. Jays still lost, though.

Here's a wider view .

How about some sports car racing. This is one of my favorite photos that I took at the Buick Nationals in Bowling Green, Kentucky a couple of years ago.



See in this larger shot how I captured the front wheels coming off the ground.
