as Brits our greatest attributes are pragmatism and stoicism.
The danger is that in some instances these attributes morph into cynicism and a will to fail.
GB did great. No question. It was a fantastic event and GB proved it can live with the best of them on the international stage.
Typically, some quarters are already bemoaning the "imminent post-olympics drop off." moaning muppets.
