UK Got Plenty Of Sporting Success
Great Britain seems to be emerging as the leading European sporting nation. Not in every field of course, but certainly in athletics as the leading nation in gold medals and joint leader with France in totals medals awarded at the European Athletics Championships.
In golf, with Rory McIlroy, we have the emerging world golf superstar. In women’s rugby, England are the newly crowned world champions. In women’s football, the home nations are building successful teams. In cycling, British men and women are leading contenders. The London-Surrey Classic was won by a Briton against stiff overseas competition.
