A magician is bidding to introduce a 'touch of magic' to this year's Olympics event in Beijing! The once vibrant and popular sport of Synchronised Magic, also known as Sink Magic, has long been forgotten but could be set for a dramatic renaissance thanks to magician and children's entertainer, Bob McBratney, who is also president of The Harrogate Society of Magicians," opens an article from the Harrogate Advisor.  "There is far more to the Olympics than a bit of running. We already have synchronised swimming so what's the different between that and synchronised magic," says the magician in a piece from the Yorkshire Evening Post. According to the Yorkshire Post, " It is thought magic was last performed at a competitive level during the reign of Henry V."
