Re: Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games
Well for sure, every country wants to win medals, preferable Gold. But the UK did achieve it's medal target of between 3 and 7 medals.
As for interest in the games, could it be because they are the winter games rather than the summer games. And some nations do better at the Summer games than the winter and vice versa. Take the US for example At the 2012 Summer Games they ranked number 1 at the 2014 Winter Games 4th. There is also the time difference which might impact viewing.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
