Competitions Romney excels at: 'log-sawing, nail-hammering

For one week every year Mitt Romney and his extended family (30 people) take a summer vacation in Wolfeboro, N.H. They started this year's over the weekend. And during these vacations, they host the "Romney Olympics," a family competition. Mitt himself is terrible at it.

The Romney Olympics have long included a mini-triathlon of biking, swimming and running that pits Mitt and his five sons and their wives against one another. But after Mitt once nearly finished last, behind a daughter-in-law who had given birth to her second child a couple of months earlier, the ultra-competitive and self-described unathletic patriarch expanded the games to give himself a better shot. ...

“You know,” Mitt added, “there’s more to that. I changed the nature of the triathlon after that. I didn’t like this idea that these were only swimming, biking and running.”

Now, he said, “we have log-sawing, nail-hammering. We added some things I excel at so I don’t come in last every year.”
