Take Phelps out the Yank team and we'd have more Golds than the USA.

They have a population of over 300 million compared to Great Britains 60 million or therabouts iirc, good going imo!

The papers would have you believe we're too busy being drunk and battering each other to care about sport

Indeed. We're third behind China (1,000,000,000+ people) and USA (250,000,000+ people).
Rowing/Sailing and Cycling FTW.

Some absolutely amazing athletes in our team. Fair play to them all, they deserve everything they've trained hard for.

Now we just need to push on from having great sailing, rowing and cycling teams and win medals in the other events (other than that double gold swimmer).
