Braveheart.

Archery was a sport where I grew up. Pity about you, though.

Anyhoo, I can visualize a points scorecard for the Welsh bowmen:
French: 100 points;
English: 75 points, unless they weren't paying you, then 100;
Scots/Irish: 50 points.
IMPRISON BUSH!

Nines to Felix:
I know a lot of really successful lawyers. My oldest son is a full partner in a prestigious law firm. I know the gig.

None of them have the time nor inclination to post the never-ending drivel like you've done for decades here on Talk Politics or even Lonely Planet back in the day.

No idea, but Champions was the worst. Even the seminal John Hurt was appallingly miscast.

The only good thing about it was the theme tune which the BBC used for their own Grand National coverage.

The opening scene in Chariots of Fire where the athletes are running was filmed on the beach in St. Andrews, Scotland.
