PROCLAIMED “IDIOTS” STUART BATES AND CHARLOTTE NICHOLS ARE ATTEMPTING THE SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBLE… BY COMPETING IN THEIR OWN VERSION OF THE TOKYO GAMES — IN WHICH THEY’RE THE ONLY ATHLETES — TO RAISE MONEY FOR A CURE TO LOU GHERIG’S DISEASE, ALSO KNOWN AS A- L-S. (SOT: STUART BATES / SPENNYLYMPIC ATHLETE) “I LOST MY BROTHER TO THIS TERRIBLE DISEASE 10 YEARS AGO WHEN WE WANTED TO DO SOMETHING MASSIVE THAT’S NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE. WE CAME UP WITH THIS ABSOLUTELRIY DICULOUS IDEA OF DOING EVERY OLYMPIC EVENT IN THE 17 DAYS OF THE TOKYO GAMES.” THEY’RE CALLING IT THE “SPENNYLYMICS” IN HONOR OF BATES’ BROTHER, SPENCER, WHO WAS AN OLYMPICS SUPER-FAN UP. THE FUND-RAISING CHALLENGE FOR THEIR WO-TPERSON SUMMER GAMES ISN’T FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. AND COMES WITH IT’S FAIR SHARE OF SCRAPES AND BRUISES. (SOT: CHARLOTTE NICHOLS / SPENNYLYMPIC ATHLETE) (IMTIAZ) WHEN YOU FALL OFF A HORSE LIKE THAT, DOES A SMALL PART OF YOU WORRY – UH OH? (CHARLOTTE) OH, MY HEART STOPPED. I WAS LIKE THAT’S IT, SPENNYLYMPICS DONE // I THINK WE WORRY ABOUT EACH OTHER MORE THAN WE DO ABOUT OURSELVES.// THERE WAS A SLIGHT SORT OF OH MY GOD, WHAT’S HAPPENED? . YHEA, WELL, I SAW HIM GET BACK UP I WAS LIKE OK YEP NEXT EVENT (STUART) YEAH, I’M A TOUGH COOKIE, I BOUNCE! (IMTIAZ) THIS IS MENTALLY DEMANDING, PHYSICALLY DEMANDING. AND IT TOOK A LOT OF PLANNING AS WELL? (STUART) YEAH. ALL OF THOSE THINGS. BUT THE REASON BEHIND IT IS THE MOST DRIVING FORCE. BATES AND NICHOLS’ AMBITIOUS ENDEAVOUR HAS EARNED THEM FANS FROM ACROSS ENGLAND. (MOS) “I THINK IT’S GREAT. WE COULDN’T MAKE IT TO TOKYO, BUT WE’RE IN ABINGDON!” AFTER MONTHS OF TRAINING AND ADVICE FROM DOZENS OF FORMER AND CURRENT OLYMPIANS ON EVERYTHIN GFROM CYCLE RACING TO WINDSURFING IN THE ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE, THE COUPLE SAY THEY HAVE THE PHYSICAL ENDURANCE NEEDED TO COMPLETE ALL THE SPORTING EVENTS. BUT THERE ARE OTHER OBSTACLES. (NATS UP) “WHAT DO I DO?” (SOT: CHARLOTTE NICHOLS / SPENNYLYMPIC ATHLETE) (CHARLOTTE) YES, I HAVE A MASSIVE PHOBIA OF FISH, AS RIDICULOUS AS THAT SOUNDS. AND WE WERE OUT PRACTICING THERE AND THAT WAS A BIG, HORRIBLE, DEAD FISH FLOATING ON THE WATER JUST BY MY BOARD AND IT WAS ALL A BIT DRAMATIC. BUT THEN WE GOT BACK IN AND WE MANAGED THE RACE. (IMTIA YZ)OU SHOOK THAT OFF REALLY QUICKLY THOUGH! (CHARLOTTE) IT HAD TO BEDONE. WE CAN’T DO NINETY FIVE EVENTS AND NOT THE WINDSURFING, CAN WE (IMTIAZ) AND YOU WON GDOL! (YEAH!!) GOING FOR GOLD IN THE DOZENS OF EVENTS ONLY COMES SECOND TO RAISING MONEY. THEY’VE ALREADY RECEIVED MORE THAN 40-THOUSAND DOLLARS IN DONATIONS. (SOT: STUART BATES / SPENNYLYMPIC ATHLETE) “WE’LL CARRY ON UNTIL THERE’S A CURE, UNTIL THERE ARE TREATMENTS, WE’LL KEEP DOING THINGS. IF PEOPLE WANT US TO DO THE WINTER SPENNYLYMPICS, OR ANYTHING, WE’LL TAKE THINGS ON.” YET ANOTHER TRIBUTE FOR A BELOVED BROTHER& BY TWO AMATEUR ATHLETES WITH OLYMPIC SIZED HEARTS. IMTIAZ TYAB, OXFORDSHIRE.
