Why is team GB the only team effected by covid and no other countries are? They are all giving the excuse "because of covid I've not had much training" or "there's no spectators so I haven't performed my best". How come no other athletes have been affected?

You are in the UK so most of what you are hearing is from the UK team. UK media covers the UK team more than, say, the Rwanda team.

You may as well ask why you only ever vacuum the house you live in.

Yes. That's how sport works.

Are you new to the concept?

I know the US has lost athletes to COVID and we lost a para Olympic swimmer due to travel restrictions.

So give additional funding to the sports that have proven that they don't need any?

The BMX girl had to crowdfund her Olympics, so she needs to have official funding guaranteed.

England's football team just made the Euros final to be fair.

There was a dailymail article that discussed the rowing performance. Apparently, the team got rid of a top coach and their performance went with him.
