‘Tiddlywinks should be in the Olympics’
SUPPORTERS of tiddlywinks say it should become an Olympic sport.
They claim it is very popular, with competitions around the world.
Sarah Knight, 31, who chairs England’s Tiddlywinks Association added: “The Olympics holds up the values of a balance between body and mind in their sports, which is key in tiddlywinks.
“Great manual dexterity is needed at elite level to move winks around.
“Your mental ability is also tested as it is actually a very tactical game.”
The International Olympic Committee has to vote for the inclusion of a new sport.
Ms Knight added: “We hope they can see how great tiddlywinks is and recognise it as a sport.”
