In her di­ary item, Bridge is a sport that suits us ( JC, Oct 9), Char­lotte Oliver be­moans the re­luc­tance of Sport Eng­land to recog­nise bridge as a sport. Af­ter all, she ar­gues, bridge is in­cluded in the Euro­pean Mac­cabi Games and in the Mac­cabiah Games.

If she is af­fronted by the ab­sence of bridge as an Olympic sport, may I draw her at­ten­tion to the fact that Track and Field Ath­let­ics hasn’t fea­tured in the Euro­pean Mac­cabi Games since Lyon, 1963. This ac­counts for the rather du­bi­ous dis­tinc­tion that, at the age of 76, I re­main Euro­pean Mac­cabi sprint cham­pion! Roger Bruck New Bar­net, Herts, EN4
