Williams wins gold, will Brits stop moaning about the Games now?

February 20, 2010

OLYMPICS-SKELETONAmy Williams became Britain’s first Winter Olympics gold medallist in an individual event for 30 years when she scored a commanding victory in the skeleton on Friday.

The 27-year-old with the curly-wurly hairstyle won by over half a second to emulate the gold won by Robin Cousins in the men’s skating in 1980.

The big question now is whether the British journalists who have been so critical of the Vancouver Olympics, floating the idea of it being the Worst Games Ever, will start singing a much jollier tune.

Most of us here have been enjoying ourselves immensely, in this pretty, prosperous and welcoming city. Now that the Brits have Borrowed the Podium, will they join the party?

More later once we get some updated reaction from the British nupes.
