Excerpt from the book Sports the Olympics Forgot This book describes 40 sports that ought to be played but aren’t, because I made them up.


Each year all the points from the four events are totalled together and the person who scores the highest number of points wins the Suharto Cup. Gary Hartono has won this cup on the most occasions with 5 victories between 1998 and 2008, although he never won any of the individual events in those years. Indeed, in 2006 he won the Suharto and came third in each event, showing that all-round accuracy is the most important element in Badminton.
