Support your local Olympian - Get a hooker!!


I could not pass up on this story from Universal Sports! Logan Campbell is an aspiring Olympian from New Zealand who is vying for a spot on the 2012 NZ Tae Kwon Do Olympic team. As some of you may, or may not, know all Olympians need to fund there own way through the trials all the way to the big show. Being at pro level in any sport requires hours of work and dedication a day, so "real" jobs are hard to come by that allow for serious training as well.

Logan has an ingenious plan to earn such money; he opened a brothel!! Genius!! Sex is one thing that will ALWAYS make money. So the next time you are calling up a call girl for a BJ, or stepping into the red light district, think of funding a potential Olympian!

Cheers,

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A New Zealand taekwondo athlete has opened a brothel to help fund his bid to compete at the 2012 London Olympics, local media reported Sunday.

Logan Campbell, 23, told the Sunday Star-Times newspaper he hoped his Auckland "gentleman's club," which provided legal escort services, would help him raise about $200,000 toward his London Games campaign.

Campbell, who finished in the top 16 in the featherweight division at last year's Beijing Olympics, said he spent around $90,000 competing in international events leading up to the games.

Most of the money had been provided by his parents, he said. His father, Max, an auctioneer, had worked two jobs to support his son's Olympic quest.

Campbell told the newspaper his desire to avoid being a burden on his parents led him to open the brothel with business partner Hugo Phillips, 20. He said he had introduced several of his female employees to his mother who "realized they were just normal people supporting kids and stuff."

Taekwondo New Zealand funding manager John Schofield said the governing body of the sport in the country would have to consider whether Campbell was suitable for international selection.

"Selection takes into account not just performance but also the athlete's ability to serve as an example to the youth of the country," Schofield said.
