So proud. clap.gif

13 of Team GB's best-ever finishing total of 67 Olympic medals belong to Scotland. biggrin.gif

Team GB has narrowly surpassed its record total from London 2012, while Scotland's able-bodied athletes (with the Paralympics still to come!) have matched their own record from London, making GB the first ever country to better its medal total following a host Games.

On this final day of competition GB could come within one medal of equaling its victorious tally of 29 London Golds, with a boxer in the Men's Super Heavyweight final tonight. Scottish Gold amounts to 4 from Rio, three fewer than London.

Andy Murray, Callum Skinner and Sally Conway bring individual Olympic Gold, Silver and Bronze respectively home to Scotland. The ten other medal-winning Scottish Olympians all took part in team events, making them very much part of the Great British success story, which has remarkably eclipsed that of mighty Team China by placing GB in 2nd place in the overall medal table behind the USA. ohmy.gif

No Scots took part in those games. No Scottish flag was flown and no Scottish anthem played. All were representative of the U.K. capital in English London.

Tell that to Mr Scotland himself, and the other 49 Scots in the team, if you dare! biggrin.gif

I forget you guys are in Winter down there, what's the temperature today, a chilly 20c perhaps? laugh.gif

Superb performance by the GB & NI Olympic team to finish in second place.
I remember when the nation merely celebrated the odd gold or silver from David Hemery, Mary Peters or David Wilkie and we always finished well down the table behind the likes of East and West Germany, Canada, Australia, Korea, etc, etc.
Well done all!!

Special mention to Usain Bolt for his remarkable triple triple!
👍

Three cheers for the Red, White and Blue !
