Did anybody read the article in the 'Yorkshire Post' yesterday that stated, if Yorkshire was a country;

- We'd have been 6th in the medal league, at the Commonwealth Games! (out of 71 competing countries)
46 medals for the county (13 Gold, 18 Silver, 15 Bronze)



This mornings 'Y P' additionally stated;

- If 'Golds - per - million inhabitants' is the deciding factor, Yorkshire fared better than Australia!

- Leeds itself, won more medals than Jamaica!



And... going back to the 2012 London Olympics, Yorkshire would have been ranked 12th, in the medal league, out of the 205 countries at the games!!!!!
