I say ol chap!

Ladies and gentlemen gathered in London over the weekend for the ultimate sporting event for the elegant and unathletic – The Chap Olympics.

Described for ‘the perfectly dressed, under-achieving dandies with no interest in sport’, the event is organised by The Chap Magazine.

Events included ‘Three-Trousered Limbo’, where participants share enormous trousers and must wriggle under a pole and ‘Bounders’, where six cads approach six ladies and behave atrociously, with the winner being the recipient of the loudest slap.

The Chap movement was created in 1999 by Hampstead-born Gustav Temple in an attempt to “stand against the horrible culture at the time” including lad’s magazines and wearing too much sportswear.
