New Sport?

Normally we're not down at the beach during a public holiday - normally we're not at the beach at all - but today we made an exception and we think we may have found a new - albeit also old - sport: kid tossing. For the uninitiated, take a kid and throw them in the air as high as you can. If you do this in deep enough water they tend not to break anything and will probably squeal for more.

Now, while we had this back in my day - and probably many millenia even before that - there seems to have been a plague of it down at Cott beach today. Little kids, big kids, even overweight tween girls were being tossed into the air, either by seemingly bored fathers or by groups of tween boys.

Are we seeing the emergence of the next Olympic craze?
