It official. No one but no one can beat us Brits at conkers. world champions at something at last. NOT EVEN THE GREAT SPORTS NATIONS, The U.S.A ,China or Russia can touch us. Should conkers be added to the Olympic games so we could win some medals ? Any other crap thing that only Britain is good at ?
If you could be a gold medalist in any olympic event what would you pick?
I am sure we could also excel at pub and street brawls, drunken and disorderly behaviour, teenage pregnancies, releasing people from jail early and many, many more things that make this country the truly great place that it is!

My friend is worried about how to increase his 400m time. What can i do to help him?
Absolutely! I have a horse chesnut tree in my garden. I could make a mint equipping the national conker team! I would even allow Nike to put their swoosh on my conkers if they wish. (Oooo...sounds a bit rude!)
The only problem is that they would have to schedule all competition prior to about 4:00pm so as not to go past the athletes' bedtimes!

The olympics are at the wrong time of year for conkers so they couldn't be added to the list of sports.

Who was the first Indian to win an international title in badminton abroad?
Is there really a question here or is this just someone taking a hackneyed jibe at the supposed lack of sporting credibility of Britain?
For the record, there is no country on planet Earth with a greater number of sporting world champions across more sports as a ratio of its population than Great Britain. We have gifted the world many of its most popular sports including some that are almost impossible to believe e.g. skiing was invented by the British. Nor is there a single sport that I know of that isn't represented at the highest levels by the British.
People who run down the efforts of others are bad enough at the best of times but when they do it without even a vestige of truth behind their ridicule, it's really cheap.
