Pauses, scratches head in disbelief!

Some time back read about the skater who planned an attack upon her rival in order to shut her out of the skating team for the Olympics, and also about some cheerleaders ‘Mom’ who had hired a ‘hit-man’ to kill her daughter’s rival’s mother, so that the distraught rival would falter, and drop off the cheerleading squad! So, fair enough, it’s a combination of America, and  sports and popularity and earning potential!

But I reckon we Brits have got them all beaten, with a story about a Jersey pony class showjumping event which was crippled due to the ponies having been DOPED!
