who's gonna come higher in the medal table GB or AUS?
we came 10th in 2004,AUS came 4th, but i reckon we could defo push as high as 5th or 6th..our cyclists alone are looking for at least 6 or 7 golds,remember they won 9 out of 10 at the world champs 4 months ago, and considering we only got 9 golds in total last time in athens we could easily move well into the top 10 imo
we're also taking 7 boxers which is unheard of since the break up of the soviet union which,if you know how how our boxers have to qualify, is a great achievement and all have a decent chance of medaling..remember that normally what boxers we do take normally medal,Amir khan was our only boxer in 2004 and he won a silver and audley harrison back in 2000 won gold...
then theres our rowers who usually deliver a gold or 3..
our swimmers,and don't laugh, could bring home a few medals,unlikely to be golds but silvers and bronzes' are reachable
but as usual people/media will focus on how sh!t we'll do on the athletics track
we could get double figure golds,silver & bronzes' but zip in athletics and we'll be doomed to failure..saying that a few of our women could come away with a few medals and we have a triple jumper that should piss it if he's switched on
