Quote from: Bez on August 19, 2016, 13:32:42 pmMy home town of Hemel Hempstead was 21st in the medals table at one point (after Max Whitlock won 2 golds on the same night)If you add Laura Trott's golds Hertfordshire is doing rather well too.I may check to see if there are any other lurking that I'm not aware of....

Quote from: Slim on August 17, 2016, 17:25:38 pmWell, that's what Nicky Campbell reported on 5 Live this morning. But I checked it just now, and another report claims £10,000, which seems a bit more credible.https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/rio-olympics-2016/1582891/rio-olympics-2016-team-gb-cyclists-using-bikes-coated-with-top-secret-aerodynamic-paint-designed-to-win-formula-ones-top-races/Even the paint is special; manufactured and applied so as to be mirror smooth for minimum drag. I was interested to see that although some of the track cyclists have unvented helmets, others had much more conventional helmets, roughly of the sort you see on the road every day. Would have thought the vents make a dramatic difference to aerodynamics, a lot more than a coat of paint.
Quote from: Matt2112 on August 19, 2016, 11:29:08 am Absolutely...Friday bants aside, I heard on the radio this morning that Alistair Brownlee's best 10K time during a triathlon is only about 70 seconds slower than Mo Farah's. Not sure of the veracity of that, but pretty astonishing if true.
