London somehow out-bribes Doha for 2017 Worlds

November 11, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

After a tense day of excitement waiting for the selection committee to count and recount the bribes received from both bids for the 2017 World Athletics Championships, it was finally announced that London had slipped more cash under the table than Doha – on this occasion.

The result means that the UK will host the international event for the first time and also provides sweet revenge after Qatar blew the competition away by bribing FIFA up to the eyeballs to get the 2022 World Cup.

“The team learned hard lessons after the World Cup defeat,” said ecstatic bid leader Sebastian Coe.

“We upped our game and we fully deserve to host the 2017 Championships after the sheer amount of money we stuffed into brown envelopes during the bidding procedure.

“What with the 2012 Olympics and the 2015 Rugby World Cup, the UK has a whole string of spectacular opportunities to embarrass itself in front of the watching world of sport.

“I’m sure we won’t let anyone down.”

    I didn’t know Seb Coe was black. The times, they are a changing.
