A happy new year to you all!

Right that’s the happy part out the way as lets face it; it’s cold and wet; the sun is stuck down low in the sky shining only the faintest of it’s rays down upon our embattled isle and nobody seems to have any money.

But of course this is the Olympic year, the year in which we must celebrate our island, our culture and our sporting prowess! (The last part isn’t all sarcasm, we’re actually pretty good at cycling, sailing and rowing) So we mustn’t be all doom and gloom.

To start of the year here is a video created by the Guardian that takes a look at some Olympic statistics. It’s more interesting than you think.
