‘He’s completely insane!’ Britons slam Verhofstadt for claiming that the EU is winning the Olympics.
GUY VERHOFSTADT has been chastised by Britons for claiming that the EU will win the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
The former Belgian Prime Minister and MEP stated that the EU’s total number of gold medals made it the actual Olympic champion. The suggestion was derided by Britons, who called Mr Verhofstadt “delusional” and “desperate.”
Wear some official Team Great Britain clothing from Adidas to see Great Britain give it their all at the Tokyo Olympics.
At this year’s Olympic Games, 23 of the 27 EU member states have earned a medal.
This year’s competition has yet to award a medal to Cyprus, Malta, Lithuania, or Luxembourg.
Mr Verhofstadt boasted that the EU has more than the United States and China combined.
“I’d love to see the EU flag next to the national flag on athletes’ clothing,” he remarked.
“We’re proud Italians, Latvians, Germans, Slovenians… and Europeans,” she says. That should be reflected in our sports!”
“EU rules OK,” said Radek Sikorski, a Polish MEP, who released an unofficial medal count on social media showing the EU in the lead.
Germany topped the European countries with nine gold medals and 35 overall as of this writing.
Overall, the EU earned 68 gold medals and a total of 251 medals.
China, on the other hand, had won 34 gold medals and 74 medals in total.
The United Kingdom has the most medals in Europe, with 16 gold and 52 total.
MEPs were criticized by Britons for boasting about the EU’s achievements, pointing out that the group is not a single country.
Mr. Verhofstadt “truly is unhinged,” according to website readers, who also urged that the EU send one squad to the next Olympics.
“Well,” one reader said. If the EU27 countries wish to tally medals as a single “country” and fly the EU flag, they should withdraw from the IOC and send a single EU team next time.
“In the meanwhile, please remain silent. Belgium, I believe, would not mind doing so.
“However, I’m not so sure about Germany. Are they willing to give up their well-known persona?”
Others criticised the attempt to portray the EU as Olympic champions as “delusional” and “desperate.”
“Apart from sports, the EU hasn’t had a single university in the top 40 in the world,” one reader stated in a harsh evaluation of the bloc.
“The United Kingdom has roughly eight/nine, with four in the top ten.” “Brinkwire Summary News,” we exclaimed.
