One of the simul challengers, Hugh Forlong-Ford, described the experience against Short like this:
In one sense it was excellent because . . . you got the chance to take the stage with someone who's right up there, and we don't often get the chance to see such quality at work. But at the same time it was one of the most frustrating experiences of my life. He just bound me up in duct tape. Pin after pin after pin.
I wonder if Mr Short has any plans to make a quick stopover in Australia. More from Stuff.
