Scotlands Duke of Argyll, Torquhil Ian Campbell, is captain of the Chivas Regal elephant polo team and hes on cloud nine due to the countrys tournament victory against the National Parks of Nepal team in Nepal earlier this month (Dec. 3).
He jokes, At long last we found something that Scotland is good at.
Campbell insists that elephants are a bit like a dog, really. You throw a ball and they chase it.
Though the Duke respects the Princes decision to retire from polo, he says if Charles ever changes his mind, Id be delighted to invite him onto our team.
He says pachyderm polo is a fascinating sport because theres a mahout an elephant driver who concentrates on steering and a player behind the mahout. Youve got three brains working in tandem...you hope.
More importantly, he adds, The elephants love it.
