My Australia is not a country! I am 'stateless'. Down with the Monarchists, way to go Republicans. Brings back ancient school day memories where we had to use a thread or compass to measure the distance between two points. Sports like figure skating, diving, gymnastics will never over-take manly sports like football, rugby, hockey, baseball etc. Maybe, 'sports' tend to attract more men then women? Just guessing. And figure skating, I believe, attract a larger female audience than male. Oh well, this topic has been discussed several times over different titles.
