Template:Infobox Olympics Great Britain

  • Great Britain is the name used by the United Kingdom at the Olympic Games. Great Britain was one of 14 nations to compete in the first Games, the 1896 Summer Olympics, and has competed at every Games. British athletes have won 668 medals at the Summer Olympic Games, and another 21 at the Winter Olympic Games. Great Britain is the only nation to have won at least one gold medal at every Summer Games. The Great Britain team includes athletes from Northern Ireland, even though that constituent country is not geographically in Great Britain.

The name was assigned by the International Olympic Committee for the 1908 Summer Olympics along with the IOC country code GBR despite including athletes from Ireland, which was part of the UK, but not part of Great Britain. An attempt was made to gain "separate nation" status for Irish athletes in 1906 but was stopped by Prince George of Greece and Denmark. From the 1924 Summer Olympics, following the secession of the majority of Ireland from the United Kingdom, and the partition of Ireland, athletes from Northern Ireland, which remained a part of the United Kingdom, could choose to represent either Great Britain or a newly created team, Ireland.

Why did Great Britain stop entering a football team into the Olympics? [1]


In 1974 the FA Council abolished the official distinction between "amateur" and "professional" footballers in England. This put an end to the practice of "shamateurism", whereby players claimed to be amateur but still received irregular payments from their clubs. At that time the Olympics were only open to amateur sportsmen and women, so the British Associations were no longer able to enter a football team.

GolfEdit

Football issues with England onlyEdit

English reportedly to comprise U.K. Oly. team

By Ricky Brooks, Special to SI.com, Goal.com

According to a various report emanating from the British media, an accord has been reached which would allow Great Britain to be represented at the London 2012 Olympics.

Apparently, the Football Associations of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales have written to FIFA to confirm they are happy for a U.K. team to be fielded, provided only English players are selected.

"I think the English are going to go it alone," Scottish FA spokesman Rob Shorthouse is quoted as saying by the BBC.

Calum often gets asked how cold the water is when he's wild swimming. In this video he's come up with this handy water temperature guide to describe what baltic really feels like. Calum's latest in his brilliant series on Wild Swimming in Scotland.

"We have not been able to come to a common agreement because England want to take part and Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland don't," said Shorthouse. Our stance has not changed. We will not be taking part in Team GB. England do want to go ahead. They are under unique pressure with the Olympics being in their home country.

"The debate is around whether we make a real issue about England going alone," he continued. "[Scotland has] to preserve our independent status as a member of FIFA. We are sticking to our guns.

However, it seems that there should be a men's and women's under-23 team for the Olympics. Rules also allow three players aged 24 and over to compete.

An official announcement is expected to be made at the FIFA Congress which is being held between June 2-3, 2009.
