    This is where we test your knowledge of the three letter country codes.

    I suppose most Indians don't like to dwell on the colonial era much.  Generally such families were engineers, railwaymen, miners & so on.  British technicians who married Indian ladies, had families which obviously followed the father's name & came back to Blighty at some point post 1947.  Those who stayed on just got absorbed back into the Indian side of their family. The exact same thing has been discussed on other threads here about Dutch Indonesians. The most famous Anglo-Indian is Cliff Richard, the singer.

    It’s our worst result since they stopped using dug out canoes.

    Those songs the Fijians sing are Christian Hymns!  All the other Pacific nations perform wild pagan war chants: the Fijians sing gospel music.

    Not really worth speculating on sports that haven’t started yet. Could be rubbish like rowing, sensational like swimming.

    I did think at first they’d actually managed to sink the boat, but it was just unbalanced with only one guy in it.

    The mess the four made of it was a national humiliation, frankly.  That has been one of our bankers for decades, something is horribly wrong.

    It once cost Robert Millar the Vuelta.  He had chased down a break of Spanish riders, caught the remnants, and none of the other guys told them there was still another Spanish rider down the road.

    Not quite. McNeill brought her arm round as part of her stroke & hit the wall. The others stopped their stroke, effectively braked & pushed towards the wall.

    Actually, I would much rather see men & women’s softball than softball & baseball.  The virtue of softball is that the game is short & can be played in almost any outdoor sports stadium.
