I agree. From the rowers and cyclists to the guys in the canoes and the man who shot the clays, brilliant athletes who don't always earn a fortune are showing how good we can be at a whole range of sports. They are mostly articulate and modest and are almost always inspiring. The women in particular are nice looking, intelligent, articulate, modest and sometimes brilliant. All power to them. They deserve their success and with any luck they will inspire millions of us to follow their example in sport and life.
