Butler Baiting and Umbrella Jousting? It can only be the Chap Olympiad


The eighth annual 'Chap Olympiad' took place in Central London on Saturday, to celebrate the eccentricities of the British upper classes.

An estimated 1000 spectators attended the event, in which "athletes" competed against each other for the much-prized title of "Chap Champion".

Events included such activities as Bowler Hat Golf, Butler Baiting and Umbrella Jousting.
