5 gold medals tho. Beckham won it once and he was an overpaid **** with a stupid voice who cost us that argentina game. Ronnies calling that 147 was up there with ali at his greatest.

That's a very blinkered view, as the last three Olympics have provided award winners (Redgrave in 2000, Holmes in 2004 and Hoy in 2008).
They haven't even been contested yet, and being on English soil only makes it all the more likely an Olympian will win it.
LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD TO RONNIE!

lol Ronnie should win it as he is one of the few sportmen who actually have a personality.
Can't wait for the olympics where every athlete will give the most scripted interview answers under order of Seb Coe's Stasi.
"So Chris Hoy, thats a great win there."
"Yeah, just want to thank everyone at team GB, my trainer, my mum & dad for believing in me, all the supporters who came out, my sponsors at kellogs for giving me the fuel to win and most of all Kirkpatrick Macmillan for inventing the bicycle and making this race possible" zzzzzzzz
England will no doubt be average in the euros so i dont see any of them winning it. But yeah, it will go to some model athlete in the olympics.
Does the public not get tired of this "yeah it's amazing" attitude given by sports people.
Stephen Hendry may pick up a gong seeing as he's retired, lifetime contribution or something if that even exists.
