Australian Olympic shooting gold medalist Russell Mark will be making quite an entrance at the upcoming summer Olympics in London. Having lost a bet, Mark is set to parade during the opening ceremony wearing a lime-green “mankini” — the kind made famous by the movie character “Borat.” Mark, who won double trap gold at the 1996 Atlanta Games and silver in Sydney, pledged to wear the skimpy swimsuit if Melbourne-based Carlton lost to St. Kilda in the Australian Football League. Carlton suffered a shock four-goal defeat in the match on Monday night and Mark owned up to making the bet on local radio. At age 48, this will be Mark’s sixth Olympics and he has a chance at being named flag bearer. Set your DVRs.
