Amy Williams won her gold for Brussels claim federalists

Federalists claim EU 'victory' at Winter Olympics

I bet she was lying down and think of Brussels as she sped round the track, yeah, right she was.
'European Olympic Team'
The youth organisation promoting European awareness and European integration had already set up a dedicated website for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. It listed the individual member states' medals as 'European Olympic Team' medals, showcasing European sporting strength when compared with the traditional medal giants.
The initiative also encouraged sports people, federations and delegations to show and wear the European flag next to national flags when making an appearance on the sports' scene, or using European colours creatively during competitions.
This, "as a sign of attachment to the values shared by all Europeans," the association said.
Something short frank and Anglo-Saxon.
