Getting served at the bar confirmed as Olympic sport

‘GETTING served’ is to be an event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The new event has been warmly welcomed by British sports fans for its combination of limited physical exertion, drink and thinly-veiled hostility.

42-year-old Tom Logan said: “The European Getting Served Championships last month was a triumph.

“I’ll never forget coming away from the bar with a tray full of Stellas while the French and Italian contestants were still stranded behind a couple feeling each other up.

“After you’ve got the drinks you’ve just got to literally push through, and keep pushing. Otherwise you end up stood there for ages, feeling like a twat.”

Britain’s bar elite are expected to up their training schedule, which includes full-contact elbowing, apologetic eyebrow raising and lunging from distances of up to 20 metres with a £10 note.
