It seems that my homeland (Scotland) has secured it’s best hall of medals ever at this year’s Olympics (see the BBC news website for more info). Of course we competed under Team GB which is also celebrating a massive amount of success this year and at the time of writing is third in the medals table!
Britian’s most successful olympian ever is Sir Chris Hoy (from Edinburgh) who managed to get a rather impressive 7 medals – 6 golds and 1 silver. For once Scotland is not being made famous due to the (totally false) stereotype that all we do is fry everything and drink too much beer.
Well done to all those involved!
