El Primer Matchup Olímpico Anual determinó qué pez era el nadador más rápido en el océano.
Translation: The First Annual Olympic Matchup determined which fish was the fastest swimmer in the ocean.
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he crowds of onlookers at the opening ceremonies of El Primer Matchup Olímpico Anual held in the small village of Bunkum, just outside the picturesque seaside capital city of Balderdash, Baldavia exceeded the inaugural crowd held for the country’s incoming Commander-in-Chief, El Presidente De Jacques, former Bladavian police Inspector Clouseau De Jacques.
If your country has a pet fish, one out of the currently known 31,500 fish in the world’s oceans, and would like to enter it in the Second Annual Olympics Matchup call your national political administration’s representatives.
Politicians, like ours here in the U. S., probably have nothing to do but think about a wall that will never be built and an impeachment that will never happen – doing things to make “their personal” version of making America great again.
NOTE: There were several “Heats” in the El Primer Matchup Olímpico Anual. Some countries that cheat often, like Putinopia and Iwanenesia, used their best sub-final round heat results as proof of their entrants final rank – not the final “medal” round performance of the Olympics itself. You can find ranking variances via Google.com.
