    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    At Rio 2016 we have won more medals per head of population than any other country I believe.

    Yep, that Welsh cycling team that had its money and organisation sorted out by the Welsh is winning medals for Wales.

    I know it's a bit shit but I met some bloke called Jésus in the pub last night and he's got thousands of them so if you know of anyone else who wants one, give me a shout.

    Grenada's won one from a population of 102,000 - Wales would need 30 medals to match that.

    according to Local TV, in the North naturally.

    Yorkshire would be 13th in the medal table
  11. Bahnhof Strasse

    Bahnhof Strasse Free the Sepsis Six!

    The street Trott & Kenny live on must surely have the most medals of any street...

    I suppose a lot of those Lancastrian medal winners are not actually people who are from Lancashire - more of yer transplanted cyclists whose place of work is the velodrome but they don't want/can't afford to live in Manchester.
    Jason Kenny is a proper local lad, of course. A fact our local ITV regional news went to very great lengths to remind us of last night. :D

    Two more Yorkshire medals in the triathlon, I see.

    Do the rowers have a training centre in Hertforshire, or is that where the horse people do their stuff?

    Yorkshire isn't a country.

    On another point. Why is acceptable to use images of sheep when referring to the Welsh when you wouldn't use imagery to make a similar derogatory comment about the Irish, Jews, Muslims etc?

    It's just lines on a map. People get attached and excited about such lines though.

    It's true! But only because the rowers all live and train near the Redgrave-Pinsent rowing lake. Caversham would actually have come 11th in 2012 apparently. :thumbs:
