Olympic cycling champion Chris Hoy has jumped off the saddle and into the writing seat. His first two books have just been published and follow the adventures of Fergus, a little boy who dreams of being the most brilliant boy cyclist in the world. If you'd like to win a set of the two books, tell us what sport (could be serious or tongue in cheek grin) you think is currently missing from the Olympic Games and should be added in future years.

Winner will be selected randomly. Comp closes on Wed 2nd March. Usual T&Cs apply.

I don't want to win these books. The man rides his bike round in a circle faster than others do it. Does this qualify him to write children's books? Surely he's not just cashing in on his current celebrity? shock* irony alert!

Id go for marbles but I can't practice as I've lost mine!

Maybe inspired by Frank Lampard and his "Frankie's Magic Football" series? Can't quite see cycling having quite the same pull though!

Scotland are often world champions so would be good to see it get more profile.

Who can eat a jar of Nutella the quickest while doing a three legged race

I read today that a jar of Nutella contains the equivalent of 55 tsps of sugar. Just saying! ?
