Workington 2018 .

Recommended Posts

On a slightly different topic, does anyone else know of a sport or a sporting event where the actual final is split over 2 days. One team wins more points than any other. For some reason there is then a 'grand final' where the points are shared, and they then change the scoring system and give the gold medal to the runner up!

Yep only speedway I guess.

Yes that is something to be proud of 2 West Cumbrians in the top 3 of a national sporting event, that cant have happened too often, if at all.

Perhaps gurning ?

Don't know about events over 2 days but Tottenham finished above Real Madrid in the group stage of the Champions League and Real went on to win the competition while Tottenham only got to the last 16.

Al least we got a silver medal for our efforts which is more than Spurs got.

Portugal sneaked through with 3 draws at Euro 2016 but still won the competition.

Happens in loads of sports until tennis format is applied or you get rid of finals/best runner up etc.
