They must be absolute garbage if they aren't on the board at all. Must be very embarrassing for them. Getting beaten by Australia yet again.

We don't worry about the 2nd rate winter "Olympics ", the real Olympics are where we shine. How does the medal tally stack up there?

does it have anything to do with only vaccinated athletes were allowed to go ?
Australian alps receive more snow annually than the Swiss alps should we be above them on the medal tally ?

A simple search of "plastic brit" shows that GB has a long history of getting ring ins. You could be a NUFC supporter the way you show no self awareness and a delusion that you somehow have some relevance in any conversation.

GB population is 2.6 times AUS . So on per capita basis AUS in front of GB.

Odd sprinking, more snow that the alps (or something like that). More ski slopes than Britain.
