probably they're less expensive than US and Canadian...:whistle:


and more comprehensible to the international audience than Australians, New Zealanders and South Africans (the worst of them all)...:rolleyes:

Just look at the ones the IOC get to do biathlon, ski jumping etc.

Can I point out that CWG judges come from all the nations in that sport not just CW nations? I guess it’s possible that they were intimidated by a threatening audience  of 10 year old girls, though.

Sure, the judges know they were all eager to sing "God Save the Queen".

Seriously, I'm always baffled that Great Britain, and England, always receive huge scores with okay (but not spectacular) routines when events are hosted in the nation. It was exactly the same in 2015 when GBR won the women's artistic gymnastics team bronze medal. Guess what? The World Championships will be in England this year. I think GBR will comfortably win a team medal again no matter what the other nations do.

Currently 36 nations have at least one medal. Throw in the five which are guaranteed a medal in boxing ( :BOT :GHA :MOZ :NIU :ZAM ) and that brings us up to 41 nations, just two short of the 43 nations that won in 2018. There's still a bunch of opportunities for nations to win medals in athletics plus Rwanda and Vanuatu have chances in beach volleyball.
