I also note a sickening obsession by our media about gold medals and medal tallies as if this is the surrogate for the worth and standing of a country.
How about all the nations who go there which win no medals? Do we compete for medals or for competition and the wonder of it all. Why go if you are not a contender for gold?
Our press has names for some of our swimmers like "The Missile" etc which is purile in my opinion and gingoistic. I dislike this side of the Olympic frenzy.
