Domestic Olympiad

After the five-ring circus of their sex
she draped herself in
no-one’s flag, had
no medals around her neck, heard
no applause or cheers from
non-existent spectators, was not
judged or awarded points or
penalised for some
minor infringement, but still
sweated, dripped, struggled to
catch her breath, needed badly to
rehydrate, looked forward to a
possible repechage.
