The Games: starts tonight News Well, sort of. The Games: Athletes In Training starts on Channel 4 tonight at 23:05. We would have posted this story earlier, but, erm, we forgot. Anyway, we’re promised footage of Craig Charles sumo-wrestling, so it’s got to be good. Athletes In Training is on every night this week, until Thursday, at the same time. The events proper start on Friday, when you can see Craig Charles jumping into a pool. Coo. You can visit Channel 4’s The Games site here, if you like pop-ups that fuck with your browser settings. We’ll be covering the series in depth if we can be bothered.
