Extreme ironing in the olympics?

Enthusiasts of a 'sport' called extreme ironing are trying to get olympic recognition by going to the US to show off their skills in ironing in extreme places like Times Square and Mount Rushmore.

One of the world champions, Phil Shaw, said: "After our victory at the Extreme Ironing World Championships in 2002, I knew there was no other place for us to go but America."

"We liken it to the last unconquered territory. If you haven't extreme ironed here, you haven't truly mastered the art. Who knows what's in store for the sport next; maybe one day Olympic recognition."
