Not bad:)

They would still be second to Lancashire!!!! They would also need a lot of interpreters.

If we are going to have a county medal count, maybe we should go by population/percentages.

I think it is a good idea to promote county rivalry in sports. Competition may be a good way of upping the ante prior to the next Olympic games.

Has anyone done a survey of medals won by counties so far, or is it just some keen Yorkshire person doing it for their own satisfaction?

I reckon Merseyside (used to be part of Lancashire) is doing pretty well but I am not keen enough to start doing a count.

Then of course we have the counties in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. They seem to be doing o.k. too.

Just thought on... If Merseyside were still counted as Lancashire, maybe Yorkshire would be way back....

Of course:)

"maybe we should go by population/percentages"

If it's done that way, we'll be No1 in the medals table!
