At Rio 2016 we have won more medals per head of population than any other country I believe.
never mind, eh.
Yep, that Welsh cycling team that had its money and organisation sorted out by the Welsh is winning medals for Wales.
Well done. Here is your prize:
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.
Fiji's won seven from a population of below 900,000
/does up flies, turns away from parade
Grenada's won one from a population of 102,000 - Wales would need 30 medals to match that.
What on earth are those things anyway??

according to Local TV, in the North naturally.
Yorkshire would be 13th in the medal table
The street Trott & Kenny live on must surely have the most medals of any street...
Just behind Lancashire and Hertfordshire.
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.
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?
I read on Faceache that Berkshire would be tenth & I am not even a berk!
Ewe wot mate.....enjoy.
I think it's these inbreds instead...Yooorkshire, Yoorkshire...etc. etc. etc that beat you....
If we had London - then it would be all over...
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?
Fuck off, twat.
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.
