No Small matter for Ivan Jones

There is a saying in media that "if it bleeds, it leads" but as the cliché goes, we're not going there. Nor will we discuss Nora's left foot. 

Now the more gimlet eyed of you swimmers will have noticed that like the man's orange tan, and Nora's metatarsal, there was a bit missing on the Mike Small trophy which was won by Ivan Jones. Why? Well, you'll have to dig deeper on how the handle of the trophy was purposely crafted with a bit missing. 

Congratulations to Ivan, who  will happily discuss how he won the series over a piece of post-truth chocolate cake. 

Yours swimmingly
