The Olympics

#1 Post by Walter Kovacks » Sun 05 Aug, 2012 5:39 pm

Great Britain and Northern Ireland are doing far better than I expected, with some surprising but well deserved medals along the way.
Great effort by all.

I agree, but I was very disappointed by the Womens and Males Football Teams, played below there abilities in the knockout stages, typical British Football...

Yes but British Footballers seem to have this undeserved arrogance about themselves and underestimate the "lower" Teams and Countries, South Korea are considered a far less skilled Team than our own yet they were all over us, I believe it's because we underestimated them, we were lucky to even make it to penalties, better we lost now than receiving the beating Brazil were going to give us lol

Regardless of the reasons what's done is done, I'm really happy how the rest of the British Athletes have performed throughout the Games, and what's best is that it's on home soul, something we can be proud of for once :)

22 gold 13 silver 13 bronze 3rd in the medal table, highest medal to population ratio, not bad. :D :drinking:
