More olympic news (but no pics)

You can't make this stuff up.

HONG KONG (AFP) - As athletes from around the world sweat it out in Beijing, Hong Kong's pampered pets are being put though their paces in their own version of the Olympic Games.

From rabbit hurdles and parrot rope-climbing to cat agility contests, a Hong Kong pet shop has organised 10 weeks' worth of events to try to promote sport for animals. Organiser Howard Cheung, who runs the city-centre PetMAX store, said he was inspired by the Beijing Games, but also wanted to help owners keep their animals healthy.

I wonder of the IOC is going to pursue them for infringement.
