Who should get a UK honour after Rio Olympics 2016? (If at all)

Who should get a UK honour after Rio Olympics 2016? (If at all)

FF 21 AUG 16 rio knights copy.jpg

After one of Britain’s most successful Olympics to date (with some questionable entries) many are naturally losing their clarity over whether some of them should be given honours from the British Empire.

laura jason

On the double. Trott and Kenny grab golds.

After rows following David Cameron’s exit from number 10 Downing Street with a number of honours reflecting cronyism rewarding his useless pals and his wife’s stylist (seriously) more lunatics have jumped in.

cam

The man who truly hatred Britain. Totalitarian Cameron, The world’s worst ‘leader’ ever.

No more so than the desperation of The Sun newspaper, edited by Tony Gallagher, a no-life virgin with big ears from national propaganda channel The Telegraph when sacked. His band of brothers at the red top tabloid gutter press, full of sleaze, non stories and personal opinion has been highly questionable on the basis of journalism. It isn’t and we all know it. Seems they themselves, do not.

Another numpty Steve Hawkes, a hatchet job writer with no fact and all personal cheerleading “demands” along with The Sun that some of our Rio 2016 Olympians get honours from new Prime Minister Theresa May. Hilarious.

These ‘Olympians’ have no honour and are average Joe’s who have been handpicked to the ‘prawn cocktail brigade’ of elite clubs because the won a medal in a chance opportunity.
Being an Olympian is meant to be about being a sportsman, overall. The moment national propaganda rears its ugly head to distort the entire political, journalistic and social juncture is a constant recipe for disaster.

Why Theresa May, who is already struggling to make her mark as the unelected bureaucrat who lost faith for failing to veto Cameron’s crony honours disgrace, would sully her reputation over some “demand” from a gutter press hack is amazing.

Mrs. May must not be the caving rock that crumbles to fandom convention. Since when was she The Sun’s b*tch, anyway? A leader does not follow.

obe

Trinket. What an OBE looks like.

On the ‘newspaper’s side of things, The Sun has always been questionable journalism since its new stance of the last four years with untalented caretaker journalists thinking they are good enough. Proprietor Rupert Murdoch is dumb enough to think it can work. Murdoch has lost his edge on figuring out how to sell papers and have a level of media respect, all lost by recent headlines full of sleaze, vulgarity and opinionated drivel.

If any, there are only a handful who deserve honours and not so great, either. Everyone loses their mind when the Olympics comes along and a moment of cheerleading jamboree for Olympic winners will further discredit the honours system as well as Britain as a nation. These people really have done nothing except participate in games as sportsmen.

The lunacy does not reward the people it intended to and is therefore a broken system.

The only way to retain credibility is to really value and accept those who do make extraordinary feats. The days of climbing Mount Everest, Sailing around the world or achieving something monumental in societal communities often forgotten has created more ‘enemies’ of the British Establishment than it has ‘honoured’ and is there hogwash.
These equivalents of benefit handouts with a broken elite will further alienate the public from the establishment and divide the honours lineage filled with crony’s.

daley.0

Pants, calendars and media attention = failure.

Even failed diver Tom Daley is being put up by the press for an OBE. The token gay man in skimpy pants who finished in last place failing to qualify in the men’s 10m diving board proves that rewarding failure with high accolades continues the prawn cocktail brigade of elite club nobodies undeserving of recognition.

Not to mention the honour will also add more intensified, unnecessary pressure on the athletes in sport and generally to live up to such roles as young and developing ‘role models’ for others.

t may

The end result is clear. Should Theresa May lose her mind and cave in it will undermine her, her next four years as unelected follower, the British Establishment, the honours system and society at large. Theresa May claims she will reward all those deserving of honours but has failed to honour the most obvious of people doing good for the country. So every time an Olympian wins something, they are going to get some random trinket from Britain which proves they have never done anything to earn it, not to mention being funded by the National Lottery players in secret as a secret con job?

mo
Most are more obsessed with being media personalities and seeking famedom with the outdated press. This is no honour. Not to mention national treason from the press for abandoning their position and infiltrating the honours system breaking journalistic and moral code. They are not allowed to be instigating or influencing these establishment and political decisions. Back in the day they would be locked up in the Tower. They should be reprimanded by Mrs May. she has much to do, and falling silent on such issues will only hammer her reputation further. She has a chance to prove she can sort out Britain’s mess and is currently flagging in the wind.

If any, the only people (Olympians) deserving of Knightoods are as follows :-.

Laura Trott (MBE)
Jason Kenny (MBE)
Jade Jones (MBE)
Mo Farah (CBE)
Jessica Ennis-Hill (CBE)
Adam Peaty (MBE)
Jonny Brownlee (OBE)
Adam Brownlee (OBE)
Bradley Wiggins (Sir)

London 2012, Day 12 Reults

London 2012, Day 12:

Beach babes bash beautifully

Beach Volleyball

Brazil defeated China 2-1 in the bronze event, coming third in the competition. Team USA guaranteed silver and gold, but who would take them was questionable.

Rookies V Pro’s both USA teams made the finals where Misty May-Treanor and Kerry Walsh Jennings defeated the rookies Jennifer Kessy and April Ross 2-0 in a tantalising final to end the pro’s Olympic outings as they chose to bow out gracefully on Olympic success, thrilled to have brought Beach Volleyball into the mainstream.

Gloria Estefan could not make it to the event, but was there in spirit where her rhythm got everyone once again into an outstanding atmosphere of unity of all nations and country worldwide on London’s own stomping ground. Sadly, there was no one to do the traditional Brit dance of ‘The Conga.’

Becks!

Some famous faces took their seats, as the lighting at 9pm looked spectacular once more. Tip for all of London – look to this in how to make evening London ever more spectacular with any event, sport of not.

Prince Harry also took his seat. As did an empty seat or two.

Cycling equals Jason Kenny and Laura Trott, both double gold medalists, chose to reveal their stance to the nation, sharing a tender moment of a kiss whilst watching the event.

Sharing a tender moment

 

Argie Bargie!

Team GB’s Women lost out to Argentina in the Women’s Hockey at the battle to advance to silver in a game that has put hockey back in contention for the Olympic games overall, and GB have done a sterling job with both sexes to keep the standard, no matter how disheartened the team may be.

Great Britain battle for bronze place against New Zealand as Netherlands Argentina go on to play the finals for silver and gold.

Quarter finals for the guys went on where Brazil bested Argentina 3-0 as USA lost out to Italy also at 3-0.

200m Women’s

Allyson Felix (US) charged through the race to claim gold with a time of 21.88, toppling Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce with 22.09 forcing her to second place in a tight challenge. Bronze went to Carmelita Jeter with 22.14 for Team USA. Veronica Campbell-Brown was runner up in fourth as role reversal from Athens saw the former champ and then runner up Felix switch over in a turn of events for 2012.

Aries Merritt won the gold in the 110m Hurdles for Team USA.

Hitomi Obara lifted the gold for Japan after silencing Mariya Stadnyk of Azerbaijan in a heartfelt win in the 48kg Women’s Wrestling Freestyle final.

Coach John Fox gives some last minute tips for the pectorial plungers in the men’s quarterfinal water polo match against Serbia. Serbia won 11-8.

Circle of thought for Team Australia

500m Women’s Canoe Sprint saw Hungary lift the gold in the single kayak clobbering.

China dropped Korea to claim the golden balls in Table Tennis taking gold.

Germany won the bronze.

Eye on the boll

BMX bikes were unleashed to the dirt track today where Caroline Buchanan and Raymon van der Biezen won seedings for Australia’s Women and Netherlands Men, respectively.

Taekwondo

Men’s -58kg gold went to Joel Gonzalez Bonilla of Spain over Korea’s Daehoon Lee.

Women’s -49kg went to China’s Jingyu Wu, taking gold.

Sailing

Australia swayed to success capturing the gold in the 49er class down at Weymouth. Neighbours New Zealand swished silver away from Denmark, who fell to third owning a bronze for their efforts.

Equestrian , Individual Jump Off

Ireland jumped for joy with a jovial Cian O’Connor taking bronze for the nation. Netherlands who took silver by Gerco Schroder on 364, narrowly missed out behind Steve Guerdat of Switzerland, who rode to gold on a score of 371.

Athletics, Discus

Rah! Rob rips his vest off!

Robert Harting yesterday hurled the Discus to fling gold around his neck for Germany. We had meant to mention this yesterday, however internet connection wont thwart us overall.

Harting had to collect his medal today.

We would also like to say thank you to the Guardian online newspaper for their “as it happened” results, former by us in design and borderline plagiariser, even with a minimal sublime mention too…

London 2012: Day 11 Results

London 2012, Day 11:

Brit bookend’s sandwich Spain

The Brit Bros Alistair, and Jonathan Brownlee bolstered for gold and bronze on London’s streets, competing against one another, side by side.

Spain’s Javier Gomez sandwich himself in between both brothers to earn silver as Alistair, 24, took 1.46.25 to gain gold. Gomez had 1.46.36 as Jonny had twenty seconds behind on 1.46.56 in an impressive close knit ending. At one point Jonathan had to take a fifteen second time penalty in the sin bin, before eagerly aiming to resurrect his chances of a medal.

Brit bookend’s sandwich Spain

The 22 year old proved a testament at his placing as a result. He said: “Being on the podium was fantastic and thrilling. I wasn’t sure what to do. Should I smile? Should I sing? I was trying to absorb everything — the crowds, the anthem, two British flags rising into the sky.”

Running London lucratively

Laura Trott ,20, peddled to the medal for gold in the velodrome at the Omnium cycling event defeating Sarah Hammer of the US and Australia’s Annette Edmonson, 20.

The press have now all launched onto Laura, as the new poster girl of the cycling media. Congrats to her for success but media need to allow her distance instead of piling pressure onto her as the next cover star just to sell a few papers. Many young inspiring athletes have buckled under the pressure they did not ask for at such high volume.

Chris Hoy, 36, continued that tradition in the Men’s Kirin race as he stormed home to cross the finish line for gold instead of Maximilian Levy in a close call, taking silver. Hoy hails as Britain’s most successful Olympian.

Bronze seemingly went to New Zealand (Simon Van Velthoven) until a challenge from the Netherlands rider (Teun Mulder), where cameras could not see as blocked by being behind the second rider, discrediting the officials and camera angles in place. None were on the other side in a pitiful decision. As one contested the scores, officials played safe and gave both a medal to avoid national outrage. Obviously, medals can’t be won by debating alone, surely? Can I have one?

Victoria Pendleton’s last race ended in controversy also. Seemingly first and crossing the line in first place, closely chased by rival Anna Meares of Australia, Pendleton became disqualified in the female Omni race as she came slightly out of her red and black inline markings on the course.

Anna Meares on the chase, choose to ride extremely close to Pendleton which dug her elbows into Victoria forcing her off balance to move out slightly in some dirty play by Meares, which gained her the gold medal by DQ. Meares lost her credibility as a performer for such unnecessary need to win dirty. many still call for the DQ on Meares from Cycling officials, which highly embarrasses the sport by allowing the decision to stand rather than revoke foul play for honourability.

Pendleton was remarkable graceful and bowed out with an honourable silver. Guo Shuang claimed bronze.

Silver Siren Vickie Pendleton waves a British flag in appreciation

The decision is clear, officials are too easy and scared of debating controversy that the reward contested decisions to anyone. If a rival elbows you in the race that is means of disqualification as well as riding too close to cause injury. The rules are flawed and need to be re-written securely instead of changed every year when some hack has a brainwave of “We should do this…”

At the Men’s Beach Volleyball Brazil V Latvia was underway, where more empty seats were shining out from the crowd, despite Seb Coe (who was seated in the velodrome) and officials claimed tickets were being re-sold and available, then sold out, while no uploads on the website occurred, until announced yesterday it will be at 7pm in another bundle of mismanagement in catastrophic volumes of disgruntled people aiming to acquire tickets, still at a highly ‘affordable’ price tag for a country with millions on benefits.

Brazil won 2-0 and advance to finals with Germany who beat their opponents Netherlands, also at 2-0.

Wrestling

Ghasem Gholamreza Rezai of Iran grappled for gold, defeating Russian Rustam Totrov for the 96kg Greco –Roman honour of gold. Swede Jimmy Alexander Ridberg earned bronze in an emotional play.

Podium medalists

Artur Aleksanyan of Armenia delivered a near perfect bout with Turkey’s Lidem where he tired him out with a german suplex variation to earn a second point, tipping the scales to win the challenge and advance to the Bronze medal standings, he shared with Sweden, as above.

Iran’s coach suplexed the winner in celebration

Equestrian, Dressage

Team GB won gold in the dressage with three man team, Laura Bechtolsheimer, Carl Hester and Charlotte Dujardin as Germany fell short with silver.

Windsurfing

Nick Dempsey surfed to silver for Britain over in Weymouth. Przemyslaw Miarczynski of Poland swayed to bronze. Dorian van Rijsselberge of Netherlands took the gold for a clean sweep.

Silver surfer on his throne

The Men’s 3m Springboard provided interest, despair and dodgy markings.

Ilya Zakharov of Russia won gold in an unpredictal and deserved effort. Qin Kai took silver for China as He Chong, highly unappreciative, claimed bronze.

Troy Dumais and Ethan Warren for USA and Australia proved strong competition, though received lower scores down the table when debatefully should have been higher. Some dives performed almost apparent and similar to Qin Kai were marked lower, yet when Kai did one or two dives similar or a fraction of worse in plunging the water, gained higher than them in marking, sparking mass debate on the bias potentially involved.

Pufferfish didn’t flounder

Patrick Hausdnig came out of nowhere in the final stages to rise to fourth, pushing Dumais, 32, to fifth. Age may also have proved a factor in bigotry.

Javier Iilana Garcia started well until a string of awkward dives in desperation to reform stride fell short.

Mexico had a similar issue with Yahel Castillo Huerta, who gave excellent dives early on and remained a contender until the ending rounds falling to sixth overall, with Warren at seventh.

Chris Mears of Great Britain had some awkward attempts, however held his own and performed a near perfect dive towards the end earning 8.5 and 9.0’s which deserved at least 9’s or 9.5’s as did He Chong on his final perfect dive. Mears finished in ninth.

Kai’s final dive was awakward on entry and received high 9’s across the board.

Dumais and Warren held valid levels of ripened maturity which should have been higher marked and in the top 3-4 for Dumais and 5-6 for Warren, clouding the judgement on the Olympic panel and the backstage politics involved.

Warren held some impressive dives despite only 20 years old.

The last thing needed is a “Eurovision Song Contest” in the Olympics.

Women’s Gymnastics saw the floor exercise finals spring Alexandra Raisman to a score of 15.600 earning gold in the process. Catalina Ponor and Aliya Mustafina of Romania and Russia respectively, earned silver and bronze.

Raisman also picked up a bronze in the Women’s Beam earning a double whammy of medals, as Lu Sui took Silver and Linlin Deng were separated by one hundred points as Deng took gold for China at a score of 15.600 where Sui held silver.

Stamped her mark on the beam for 2012

Zhe Feng continued China’s success in the Men’s Parallel Bars in first for gold at 15.966. Marcel Nguyen narrowly missed out in a tight score of 15.800 to earn silver, while Hamilton Sabot proved a stronghold at 15.566 to wrest a bronze victory in a competent effort.

Up-side down…

Boy you turn me…

Epke Zonderland (Netherlands) held a 16.533 launching himself into his own wonder world with a gold medal for his efforts in the Men’s Horizontal Bar. Fabian Hambuchen took silver for Germany and Kai Zou picked up bronze for China. Danell Leyva (US) entered fifth in a notable performance, as the Gymnastic events finally ended for 2012 Olympia.

London 2012, Day 8:

Super Saturday: Six gold beacons

of Great British light

This is Ennis: 2012

The nations sweetheart Jessica Ennis took the day by storm, in the Athletics events to power through, leading the table and reaching out for an Olympic gold medal for Team GB. Evangelic Ennis yesterday added over 4000 points to start strong in Shotput, 200m sprint, women’s bar and hurdles events, with javelin, long jump and 800m to come today. Expectation was piled onto Ennis for the last three years with huge expectations. While she powered through with her determination to win, the media continue to hype individuals in the wrong way, where it needs to re-consider the effect longstanding. Rebecca Adlington had immense pressure onto her, as had Tom Daley to a degree.

Ennis stamped her mark on the games

Next to the girl next door, was Greg Rutherford, who launched into first for the long jump flying into first, with an 8.31m to return gold to Team GB once more for the guys.

Go Far-tha-r!

Mo Farah relayed the gold back to Team GB after a bout of stamina secured his 10,000m victory run to first place, bringing back the sixth in a day now hailed as “Super Saturday” for Great Britain from our Heptathlon heroes.

King, Trott and Roswell

The Women’s team (Laura Trott, Dani King and Joanna Rowsell) over in the velodrome for more Team Pursuit who drove further success home, shattering Team USA in the finals with extraordinary speed. They almost lapped them on the other side in a glorious cycle.

Sophie Hosking and Katherine Copeland began the day’s first victory in the lightweight double sculls at Eton Dorney for the Rowing events. The men continued tradition in the 4 man coxless four vessel where Andrew Triggs Hodge, Tom James, Pete Reed and Alex Gregory rode home with gold also.

Dramatic despair came by INCHES in the lightweight sculls where Brit’s Zac Purchase and Mark Hunter were pipped by Denmark ‘s pair Rasmus Quist (aptly named) and Mads Rasmussen. The Brit pair had to restart after a faulty seat initially. “We gave everything. We tried everything. We wanted to win so badly. Sorry to everybody we’ve let down”, Mark Hunter said. None of the country felt let down by the pair in a tense ride. Fountains of support flooded Twitter and all outlets for them.

The Danish ‘devils’ gave Britain a past-ing…

Mark and Zac for Team GB

The Brits washed away Waterpolo hopes to Hungary, who dominated the event, where our boys in Brit blue put in a good effort since participation centuries ago.

Team GB in 2012

Tennis 

Serena Williams fought Maria Sharapova for the hopes of a gold medal at Wimbledon. Williams won.

Andy Murray and Laura Robson wrote their names in the diary for mixed doubles for Tennis action, as Murray plays R-Fed on Day 9 for the gold.

Women’s Triathlon

Swiss Nicola Spirig took gold foiling Sweden’s Lisa Norden in a gripping end. Erin Densham claimed the bronze for Australia after falling out of contention previously in line for potential gold until the final 200 metres.

Helen Jenkins attempted to win in the event, though was unable to stronger competition on the day. “I gave everything, I’m sorry it wasn’t a medal,” Jenkins added, after a fair effort in the gruelling ground gallop of London’s streets.

Weightlifting

Men’s 94kg saw Moldovian Anatoli Ciricu gain the bronze at the Excel centre. Alexandr Ivanov for Russia clinched silver as Ilya Ilyin gave Kazakhstan the gold medal. Kazakhstan also lifted a world record of 233kg clean and jerk.

Swimming

Women’s 50m Freestyle flung into action as Netherlands own power force Ranomi Kromowidjojo proved the one to beat once more, gaining another glorious gold in the pool with an Olympic record to boot at 24.05.

Today’s Goggle Guru

Aliaksandra Herasimenia finished with 24.28 to earn Belarus a silver. Both poked tongues at one another in alight hearted moment on the podium, keeping competition healthy and fun, as third came another Dane, Marleen Veldhuis for bronze also.

Britta Steffen and Francesca Halsall ended fourth and fifth in a tight battle where Brit Halsall almost beat Germany’s Britta. Only one second separated them at 24.46 and 24.47. Steffen still owns the world record in the race at 23.73 from 2009.

Men’s 1500m freestyle started awry as Yang Sun launched into the water as a crowd member became over excited. Unfortunate for the sportsman, however was highly ungentlemanly in attitude afterwards. Restarting the race, Sun kept his lead in the race, eventually widening the gap to swim home with 14.31.02 to claim the gold on offer.

Sunny Horizons

The next available medal was seemingly Ryan Cochrane’s by a landslide, until Tunisian Oussama Mellouli caught the Canadian for an intense silver battle. Cochrane managed to thrust through and claim silver by a fraction, leaving his rival to take bronze. Cochrane raced a 14.39.63 to Mellouli’s 14.40.31.

Daniel Fogg attempted a race for Team GB, though swept away by tough competition in a trying effort.

Girls jetstream to gold

The 4 x 100m medley relay’s for the females saw Team USA rip through the water with a powerful team of gold medallists each from earlier in game events. Missy Franklin, Rebecca Soni, Dana Vollmer and Allision Schmitt tunnel through to top the gold on the podium with a 3.52.05 setting another new world record in the process. Australia entered second and Japan in third.

Team USA swim to gold

The men took to the same event, where the top three remained, though switched places, as Team USA’s held 3.29.35 in Michael Phelps’ last swim at the Olympic’s earning his 22nd medal, 18 gold overall. His team mates Matthew Greavers, Brendan Hansen and Nathan Adrian also held their own in a strong team unison.

Christian Sprenger, James Magnussen, Matt Targett, Hayden Stoeckel gain bronze for Australia.

Japan fought a tough battle with Australia, who came second and third, respectively. Our one to watch, Aussie James Magnussen, the original goggle guru did not disappoint, as restored Australia to third place among tough competing in the water as the last man in the relay keeping level with  Japan for the remainder, in a tight result for victory.

Kiss the gold

Michael Phelps has ended his games at 22 medals and is now the fuly fledged greatest Olympian and dominant swimmer since 12 years ago. Outstanding achievement no one can remove. Congrats!

The Ultimate Olympian of our time

Congratulations to Michael Phelps!

Phelps was presented with a special trophy ceremony at London 2012 to commemorate his immense career. Michael Phelps – “I finished my career how I wanted to.”
