Dimitar Berbatov – champion javelin thrower

Berba all set for 2012

If you were wondering whether Usain Bolt’s visit to Manchester United’s Carrington training ground might be an unnecessary distraction a couple of weeks before a Champions League Final, it looks like you might have been right.

United’s squad has gone track and field crazy, with Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov now in training to become a javelin thrower. And he is doing it with a smile on his face! OTP thought he was incapable of participating in a sport and smiling at the same time.

We suspect Berba has stumbled across a sport where his languid nature is sure to backfire eventually. I predict an impaled big toe because he couldn’t be bothered to let go of the spear.
