Yorkshire wins Olympic Triathlon Gold medal


Brownlee Brothers Olympic gold and silver

Yorkshire is ‘celebrating’ after adding the Olympic Triathlon gold medal to its list of sporting titles.

Yorkshire had already won the Masters, boxing world titles and the football World Cup, but now God’s own country has retained its Olympic Triathlon title.

Yorkshire said, “It’s alright I suppose.

“Though Rio is a little too warm for us at this time of year, and I could have done without all that television fuss to be honest.

“There’s no way I could wear medal this to the pub though; the lads would never let me heard the end of it.

“I just want to get home, have a nice cuppa and put that medal next to all the rest of my sporting achievements.

“It’s nice that it’s quite small, as I can put it in the sock drawer with all the others.”

Yorkshire is now expected to lead the charge at this year’s Ryder Cup, but only if the team changes its name to Europe and Yorkshire.
