Bjorn Borg Forced to Sell his Trophies

Heres an idea. Why cant a few players come up for a fund raising tourney in the name of Bjorn Borg. They can hold it the week before Wimbly and make eight big names play. Maybe they can get Andy, Mcenroe and Federer, they will surely pull a lot of money.

God. These thieves have no idea how stupid they are. They will be caught, as not everyone has a gold medal in their cabinet

They will melt the gold and sell it actually.

They're only gold plated - not real gold. They're not worth that much in monetary terms.

Not exactly olympic medals contain about six grams gold, so 12 grams from two medals. Thats not cheap.

hundreds rather than thousands is what matthew pinsent said i think. Worth enough anyway. Just not masses.

Hey, turns out he's not badly off after all - apparently half of all Swedes wear the Bjorn Borg underwear brand and he's buying one of those flash houses on that man-made island off Dubai. He just wanted to create a smokescreen so that his creditors would think he didn't have any cash to give them. Cheeky bugger.

Yes, but Borg's not down and out. He's loaded. This is just a smokescreen so that he doesn't have to pay some people he owes money to.

I think the authorities should investigate a bit into this matter. If they find Borg is really out of money, they should do something to help him.

Didn't you know gold and silver are separable? There are quite a few commercial processes. A very simple trick in the lab will also do, silver is more soluble in nitric acid than gold.
