Bradley Wiggins should light the Olympic Flame
Sir Edmund was knighted for his phenomenal efforts: surely both Daley Thompson CBE and Sir Steve Redgrave should cease their infernal bickering over who should light the Olympic Flame. Sir Chris Hoy has already said that winning the Tour de France would be among the greatest British sporting achivements of all time. People forget that Bradley Wiggins is already an incredible Olympian with six medals, including three golds. That makes him something of a British sporting legend.
So, let us focus on the glories of the here and now: Bradley Wiggins deserves an honour before the New Year and prior to Her Majesty's next birthday. What say you, Sir Steve, Mr Thompson, Lord Coe, BOA, LOCOG?
