Default Great Summer to be British don't you think?

Murray won Wimbledon
Hamilton won at Silverstone
Wales + Northern Ireland performance in the Euros (less talk of England in the Euros)
Saracens won the European Cup (Ex Heineken Cup)
England Rugby beat the Wallabies 3-0
Scotland beat the mighty Japan
Froome on course for his 3rd Tour de France (Kenyan/British)
Olympics - we will win one gold some where
and finally Brexit (Biggest achievement of them all)

It's a shame the Ashes and Lions tours are next year!

Have i missed out on any other sporting achievement?



Edit Heather Watson won mixed doubles at Wimbledon!

English cricket isn't doing to bad either.

Murray is an English hating twat.

Actually some not bad work from Iggle there. Lots of things to be pleased with, countering the abject misery, disappointment and loathing of English poofball.

Andy Murray - Scotsman
Lewis Hamilton - Grandchild of Grenadan immigrants
Froome - Born in Nairobi to a Kenyan mother...

So, therefore;

Murray = Brit (Scotland is part of Britain).
Hamilton = Brit (Born in Stevenage to British parents).
Froome = Brit (His Mother's parents moved to Kenya from England).

Hope this helps.

Sadly it still is.

Was a bit disappointed about Murray, frankly.
