Look up if you find yourself walking along Flinch Lane in The City of London this afternoon and you'll see the Union Jack proudly backlit by the sun.
It is apparently a myth that the Union Jack should only be named as such if flown on the bows of a boat. According to The Flags Institute: . "From early in its life the Admiralty itself frequently referred to the flag as the Union Jack, whatever its use, and in 1902 an Admiralty Circular announced that Their Lordships had decided that either name could be used officially. Such use was given Parliamentary approval in 1908 when it was stated that “the Union Jack should be regarded as the National flag”.

The big guys Tony Cliffe (-120kg) and Jord McLaughlin (120+kg) provided a solid finish to the World Championships with phenomenal efforts from both lifters. Congratulations to Tony on going 8 for 9, winning bronze in the bench press and silver in the deadlift and a massive well done to Jord, who on his senior World Championship debut went 8 for 9, with a 27.5kg increase PB Total!
It's been an incredible championship with some spectacular lifting from team GB, so congratulations on every lifters efforts.
I'd also like to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of the coaches who have given up thier free time and monetary resources to be here in Belarus to coach and support our lifters. Without them, the success of team GB would not have been possible. So a massive thank you to Pete Sparks, Arun Singh, Jason Coultman, Ben Sparks, Henry Tosh, Tanya Bull, Norman Cheung, Adam Riley and Jarek. Finally big thank you to SBD.

"A beautifully frosty winters morning at a favourite, local spot of mine. I love the way the stream zig-zags towards the gnarled tree, with the morning sun beginning to rise just behind."
