Clear already that many British Olmpians have not been able to handle the pressures, especially our women swimmers who are way down on reasonable expectations based on the 2012 ranking lists... Gandy, Miley,etc and nearly all of our swimmers are underperforming , with one glorious exception.. Jamieson, smashing asunder the Brit record and and improving onto a different level. Thats what wins medals.
Never thought for one minute that GB would equal their amazing Being haul, with 12 cycling medals!!.
I reckoned a year ago, and still do, that we will get a maximum of 14 Golds and round about 30/35 medals.
You're a proper Doris Stokes aren't you ?
Eat humble pie you old curmudgeon
