‘There will be no medals for democracy!’ Beaune, a Macron admirer, brags about the EU’s Olympic “win.”
A FRIEND OF Emmanuel Macron bragged that the European Union had won the Olympics with a massive medal haul – more than the United States, China, and the United Kingdom combined.
France’s European affairs minister, Clement Beaune, claimed that the bloc’s athletes won 288 medals at the Tokyo Olympics. It comes after misguided extremists claimed that EU27 contestants should compete wearing the bloc’s flag. “In total, the European Union countries collected 288 medals!” Mr Beaune declared after the games ended.
Wear some official Team Great Britain clothing from Adidas to see Great Britain give it their all at the Tokyo Olympics.
“Immense pride in the 33 French medals at the Tokyo 2020 Games,” he continued. Thank you to the French team for their efforts!”
The next games will be held in Paris in 2024, which Mr Beaune sees as a chance for the EU to win even more medals.
Guy Verhofstadt, an arch-federalist and Belgian MEP, remarked last week, “I’d love to see the EU flag next to the national flag on athletes’ uniforms.”
Radek Sikorski, a Polish Member of the European Parliament, posted an unofficial social media medal count, declaring, “EU rules OK.”
A increasing number of pro-EU lawmakers are advocating for the EU’s 27 members to compete in future Olympic games under one banner.
According to reports, the EU won more medals in Tokyo than the United Kingdom, the United States, and China combined.
Team GB, on the other hand, was the best-performing European nation at the Games.
Mario Calvo-Platero, a well-known Italian columnist, declared the EU to be the “ultimate winner we should talk about” in a post.
The quantity of medals won by European athletes should worry countries like China and the United States, he said.
“In America, many are scared because China has come uncomfortably close to the United States, 39 gold medals versus 38 in Beijing,” he wrote in La Repubblica.
“However, on gold, we took home 85 gold medals across Europe, from Greece to Portugal, from Lithuania to Croatia. In total, Europe had 286 medals compared to 113 medals for the United States and 88 medals for the Chinese.”
“The overall medal count of the 27 nations of the European Union decisively wins overall,” Mr Calvo-Platero remarked.
“And even if we had been organized under a single federation – which, as is the situation, is obviously not recommended.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
