Canada name change shock

REUTERS: The Canadian Olympic Committee, has called on Canada to change its name as part of a plan to improve its standing on medal tallies. President of the Committee, Michael Chambers says that having the name "Canada" means that other nations who don't win medals appear before it on charts tallying up the winners.

"It's unfair that nations such as Albania and Azerbaijhan can win no medals and appear above us on the medal chart. That is why we are proposing that Canada change it's name to 'Aaaaaaa'.

"It may take a bit of getting used to, but instead of appearing to come 83rd, we can instantly climb to the top of the leader board of nations with no medals - a difference of 30 placings or so. I will be meeting with the Prime Minister to discuss the new proposal as a matter of urgency."

Mr Chambers explains the name 'Aaaaaah' was also considered.

"The committee decided it was not worth the risk of using a letter from lower in the alphabet and being gazumped by some try-hard like New Zealand," he concluded.
