I have marveled at the British performances at the Olympics. We have done so well. The government is quick to claim credit pointing to the grants that were made to the team.
Whilst financial support allows them to get stuck into their training and other preparation, it must be clear that it is discipline that pays off in those cold wet months when even selection is in the lap of the gods.
Thus, I was amused to see that the discipline slipped a little in a post-race interview with the BBC. A touch of humanity crept in.
