    Nope. Anyone decent at a national level would be mid pack at best at world level.

    The Kenyans and Ethiopians entire culture, lifestyle and upbringing make them better than us before they even put on a pair of trainers. Only culture that could challenge it would be Japanese, but they're not interested in winning these things.

    The most amazing thing about this recent conversation is that I've learned AON is even more of a waste of space than I thought he was previously

    Andy Murray is retiring after Wimbledon. What a phenomenal career, great guy, and one of the best sportsmen Britain has produced in decades.

    What a sad way that career is fizzling out with his body giving up on him. One of the best British sportsman of my lifetime. To me it's more impressive that he won 2 wimbledon titles in the golden era with 3 other all timers for competition, than it would be if he won about 10 grand slams in a low time in the sports history.

    Agreed 100%. The fact that he's been competitive and even topped the rankings in the same era as probably the number 1, 2 and 3 players ever is incredible.

    Very sad indeed.

    Definitely the best British sportsman of the last decade if not longer and still think he doesn't get the credit he deserves.

    I think Mo Farrah and Lewis Hamilton both have arguments for them, plus some of the cyclists. But Murray is definitely in the conversation.

    Sad news but kind of expected given his recent history. I'd also be surprised if he makes Wimbledon...it will all depend how he feels after the Aussie Open.
