In the Guardian, a journalist quoted an Australian Olympic sportsman as saying “You ****** poms, you can only win medals in sports where you sit down”. Looking at the Great Britain’s medal tally, he had a point. Sailing, Cycling, Rowing, Canoeing & Riding.
It does ignore Kelly Holmes winning the women’s middle distance races, but its a great piece of abuse, with enough truth to make it hard to ignore. I love Australians!
