The Horizontal Sticks

I went to the local quiz last night.

There was a question on "which piece of equipment did Beth Tweddle win her Olympic medal on"? I of course answered the asymetric bars.

I was marked as wrong.

They had the answer, the uneven bars.

Don't be ridiculous I said.

On checking the news reports this morning I discover they are now called the uneven bars.

We have dumbed down gymnastic equipment!

Roll on the kickybally season!

  • I had a similar argument with a young friend but she showed me clip where I definitely heard 'uneven bars'. What the hell is the language and the intelligence of the youngsters coming to? There is obviously someone in the 'meedja' who could not spell Asymmetrical!

  • This article suggests it's an 'either/or' name. What name the media gives it is irrelevant. I think you were robbed.
