Olympics infographic

The BBC have put together a lovely infographic about the recently passed London 2012 games, including world records, attendances, athlete’s shape and size and the noise levels at some of the venues and events.

Oh – and that medal table.

Obviously, being of Yorkshire stock, this means that I am ever so athletic and stuff. Twice as much as people from South Africa.

Of course, had the Isle of Man been competing as a separate entity, it would sit proudly atop that “small countries” table, with Peter Kennaugh’s Team Pursuit gold in the Cycling to show for its 83,327 population. Being of Manx stock as well must therefore make me some sort of super athlete.

It’s no wonder that people keep randomly testing my urine. Maybe I should consider selling it to people like Peter Shardlow.
