OK, so you need to realise, straight up, that nobody makes the Olympics Heroes Board JUST because they win a Gold, Silver or Bronze Medal. Usually I expect something more..... You will get the idea soon enough.
Having said that, the gorgeous Golden Girls of Rowing, Heather and Helen, deserve their place on the Heroes Board. We were all getting quite maudlin about our failure to strike gold so by winning
"our" first Gold Medal, they have, in the words of Gary Lineker (he of the crisps adverts) "lifted the mood of the nation." Attagirls!
