Brit going in the Taewkondo (sp?) semi as we speak. Could be an unexpected medal, Pentathlon going well as well
Hather Fell in gold position at the minute, itstl
I don't know why we don't at the Commonwealth Games tbh. But everything else is based on tradition. In football we started the international game off through pitting England against Scotland, so it's always been that way, and the Scots, Welsh and Northern Irish would probably be more upset than us if we were forced to compete as UK tbh - not many of their players would get to play international football, that's not being arrogant it's just the way it is.
In Union I guess the reasons are similar, though obviously there is the Lions team which tours every four years. In League it's interesting, we've actually just changed back from GB to England, don't know why.
In Ahtletics though we've always competed as GB except for the Commonwealths. I remember watching a sprint final in the 98 CGs and I think GB got like a 1-2-3-4-5-6 or something
Kinda like us with the "Water Olympics" itbt. Our medals have come from:
Swimming: 6 gold, 6 Silver, 7 Bronze
Sailing: 2 Gold, 1 Silver
Rowing: 2 Gold, 1 Silver
Triathalon: 1 Gold, 1 Bronze
Canoe/Kayak: 1 Silver, 3 Bronze
Water Polo: 1 Bronze
Total Watersports: 11 Gold, 9 Silver, 12 Bronze
Not bad considering our overall total is 11, 14, 16
Reckon surfing, and a few other watersports should be introduced tbh

Fair play to DeGale. Our first middleweight gold since 1968. Wasn't the prettiest fight, but he always looked to have the slightly narky Cuban's measure.

From The Guardian. A fittingly Olympian display of sour grapes from Laporte:
"We aren't just going to concentrate our means on four or five sports to bring home the medals, like the British have done"
Displaying all the good grace his nation is justly renowned for. Just face it, Bernie: we did you at your own place in the world cup semi & now we've done you in the Olympics.
