Controversy seems unavoidable for Monty The Great, as he continues his quest for gold medals at the Independent Olympic Games. Footage of the precision jumping has emerged, forcing a revision of the 15.266 score which he had been awarded on the day. By himself.
The recording clearly shows a slight hesitation before take-off and also that he did indeed put his foot down during his jump. The scoring system dictates that a penalty of 1 is deducted for each of these errors, meaning his score of 15.266 has been amended to 13.266 which puts him in second place behind Chicken’s winning score of 14.938.
Chicken said that she was pleased that the enquiry had revealed the truth, but that she was concerned that her gold medals were becoming quite heavy to carry. She said that she may need to buy a wheelbarrow to move them around.
In an unpopular move, Monty The Great has cancelled the remaining gymnastics events, stating that time didn’t allow for unnecessary ‘messing around.’ He has announced that the aquatics will begin immediately, followed by the boxing tournament. When asked to comment about the revised placings for the precision jumping, he said that he had to accept the result in good grace. Adding that the scoring system was a shambles which did not truly reflect the skills of all competitors.
