GB Olympic medalists.

Should ALL GB medalist winners get a gong dependant on gold,silver or bronze, or should they be limited to UK born athletes?

Strange question. Smile Give all the winners a gong, irrespective of where they're born. It's not our decision to make anyway, it's the IOC's.

I agree with everything Syl said about Mo Farrah. Sports commentators go into raptures and flood the air with superlatives  and hyperbole when they talk about his back to back achievements.  He's achieved the triple triple, and the double quadruple apparently - whatever that means. .

I think he will get sports personality of the year award too. He's never won the top prize. Our Andy has won it twice, I don't think he'll win it THREE times, no one has ever done so. That leaves the way clear for MF to win it. If not him I hope it's someone equally worthy who does.
