  4. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portsea_Island
  5. This is a nice quiz question. This is the flag of an island that has a population slightly too big for the Island Games. Who is it?
  6. 25th February 2019 "The UK should end its control of the Chagos Islands in the Indian Ocean "as rapidly as possible", the UN's highest court has said. Mauritius claims it was forced to give up the islands - now a British overseas territory - in 1965 in exchange for independence, which it gained in 1968. The International Court of Justice said the islands were not lawfully separated from the former colony of Mauritius."
  7. Last year Saint Helena competed in the Southern Africa qualifying tournament of the T20 Cricket World Cup. Amazingly, for a population of 5000, they finished 3rd of 6th nations. They won 3 of 6 games, beating Swaziland, Lesotho and Malawi.
  8. USA Boxing were big supporters of the new AIBA president. I think they may be delusional if they believe this is the real schedule.
  9. German hosted but in both German and English
  10. I remember it was a German website but can't remember the address
  11. Interesting background to one of the stars of this year's Six Nations Championship. https://www.worldinmotion.com/meet-josh-navidi-the-welsh-son-of-an-iranian-wrestler-who-is-turning-heads/

  14. I'm not a big fan of squash but, at least here in Britain, it's the sport that people who don't follow the Olympics are most surprised that it's not included in the Games.
  15. Final score - Millom 38 Red Star Belgrade 10
  16. They were only allowed to avoid the £500K because they are an amateur club.
  17. Indoors is basically a British thing because other bowls countries have nice weather in the winter...
  18. Most unlikely game of the day https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/rugby-league/46633025 Rugby League Challenge Cup Round 1 Millom (small town of 7000 people in the far north west of England) versus Red Star Belgrade, the champions of Serbia and the Balkan Super League
  19. John Archibald set the fastest ever 4000m individual pursuit time at sea level - 4:09.584 - at the British Championships yesterday.
  20. Not yet. She got a long ban because she used fake medical certificates to explain why she had EPO in her blood in 2017 But the test for EPO is still the same as 2016. It has not improved since then. If it ever does improve then I think Sumgong's 2016 sample will be one of the first to be tested,
