GOOD MORNING OLYMPICS FANS
Team GB are set to record their worst medal haul since Athens 2004 at this summer’s Olympics, a supercomputer has predicted.
Sporting Index reckons the British stars currently in Tokyo will manage to cobble together just 45 medals, with 15 of those gold.
That would be the worst tally since Athens 2004 when Team GB won just 30 medals.
Team GB haven’t won fewer than 50 since Greece, also bagging 51 – including 19 golds – at Beijing 2008.
However, 45 would still be a huge improvement on Athens, as well as Sydney 2000 (28) and Atlanta 1996 (15).
Meanwhile, Thousands of login IDS and passwords of people who purchased tickets for the Tokyo Olympics have been leaked on the internet.
A government official confirmed today that the same information for Paralympic ticket buyers and also those who had used a volunteer portal for the Summer Games have been leaked online as well.
The official, who was speaking on condition of anonymity, added that the organising committee had launched an investigation into the matter.
Finally, Norway’s women’s handball team has been fined £1,300 for refusing to wear bikini bottoms.
The Scandinavians were charged with wearing “improper clothing” as they instead wore shorts during the European Beach Handball Championships in Bulgaria.
The fine comes a day after British Paralympian Olivia Breen said she had been told by an official at Sunday’s English Championships that her competition briefs were too SHORT.
