Were you inspired by the Sochi Winter Olympics back in February? Perhaps it made you want to get off the couch, take up a sport, and become the next Olympian gold medalist.

Then your dreams all came crashing down. After dedicating days of your life to a rigorous training routine, you discover that you can't swim, suck at running, and hate to put on a sweat.

But if you think your hopes of ever entering the Olympic Games are over, fret not. On the 14th July, The Chap Olympiad returns to Bedford Square. Aimed at all well groomed English gentlemen and gentlewomen, it is a competition celebrating complete sporting ineptitude.

If you think lycra is grotesque and too revealing, if you think fashion today is far too ostentatious, then come along to The Chap Olympiad for a 12pm start. Dress in your best finery - waist coats, cravats, top hats, and monocles - and participate in some jolly good clean fun.

The opening of the ceremony will be initiated by the lighting the Olympic Pipe, and passed around to the tune of the National Anthem. There are ten events in all; in the past these have included The Three-Trousered Limbo, Umbrella Jousting, Moustache Wrestling, Quill Throwing, Cucumber Sandwich Discus, and The Pipe-Smoker's Relay. Extra points are awarded for immaculate trouser creases. Winners will be awarded gold, silver and bronze cravats.

Entry is £20, but if you don't want to participate, then spectate from the side lines with a G&T.
