Should Gardening be an Olympic Sport?

“Healthy living”

It is less than one year to the
London Olympics in 2012. Summer is nearly over, yet there is much still to do in
the garden, including cutting the lawn and hedges, weeding and pruning the
bushes.

Much of this gardening will include strenuous physical activities,
that an Olympic sports person would be familiar with. In a recent survey, 80%
of  Ontario chiropractors reported that working in the garden was one of the
most common sources of neck and back pain. http://www.oxfordprospect.co.uk/Should-Gardening-be-an-Olympic-Sport.html
