Hellenic success at 2016 Olympics

looking at and comparing the figures re gold medals there can only be one explanation. I am using Greece as an example and comparing their performance with that of Japan, Germany, Portugal and Sweden. The Greek state is dealing with a huge financial crisis. There Olympians received no financial support from the state yet they performed better than any of the powerful states I mention. G

Gold medals.         Population

Greece.    3.           10 million
Japan.     12.          125 million
Germany 17.          80 million
Portugal 0.              10

Wonder how the spin doctors of the West will spin this one around? In my books the Greek success has a lot to do with that special spirit the Greeks have and will never lose!

Another gold medal for Greece

Greece's Ekaterini Stefanidi won the Olympic pole vault on Friday and her country's first athletics gold since the 2004 Athens Games, then defended its integrity after barred Russian Yelena Isinbayeva blasted the event as sub-par without her in the field.

Well done

Great to see the Hellenic Olympic team get five medals in Rio even though they had no financial support from the government. Well done the Hellenic team

Olympics 2016

Great to see Hellenic Olympians winning 5 medals so far in Rio. Two gold one silver two bronze. A country with a population of 10 million ( one sixth of that of Britain ) has done very well

state of the world

Why is the world in such a state? Two theories on that. One is that the world isn't in any state we just have immediate access to news as and when it is happening. The second is because we are dominated by vile career politicians with very short aims. William Hague was a good example on how not to unleash a moron on the foreign office!!
