Aussie shooter in ‘mankini’ threat
Australian shooter Russell Mark has threatened to parade at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics in a lime-green “mankini” after losing a bet.
The burly 48-year-old said the penalty for losing the wager over the outcome of an Aussie Rules football clash was to don the skimpy bathing suit made famous by the movie “Borat” starring Sacha Baron Cohen.
“I actually did make that statement,” Mark, who won double trap gold at the 1996 Atlanta Games and silver in Sydney, joked .
“Anyway, a lot of people would think a mankini might look better than the uniform they’ve given us, so I don’t know if it’s such a bad thing.”
