buggius, altius, fortius


I’m pretty sure she can make it over the bar. The question is: Will she land on the safety mat?

I hope so!


Mr Bugg is standing to one side, his hands to his mouth, which is an O of tension. Meanwhile, Mrs Bugg is in the middle of her pole vault: the pole is in the … thing the pole sticks into, and is bending a bit as it prepares to fling her over the bar, which is set quite high. On the other side is the safety mat, which looks quite thick, and a good thing, too.

The text reads: “Novembug 15, 1839: The first modern revival of the the Buglympics … I think she can make it.”
