Forty Quid at The Monkey Tonight Plus a Question about The Mongolian Olympic Team

You can win £40 cash tongiht at the Brass Monkey on Drummond Street. The cheat news is that tonight’s music round includes the legend of Chas & Dave.

Meanwhile, someone was asking if Mongolia had a team at the London 2012 Olympics or not. I guess they were thinking that maybe Mongolia is a poor country with nae athletes so maybe didn’t expect there to be a team.

I didn’t know the naswer on the spot so of course I looked it up and found that the answer is that they did and in fact they won five medals: 2 Judo, 2 boxing and 1 in Wrestling. All the medal winners were men apart from the wrestler who was a lady called Soronzonbold Battsetseg. Get your tongue round that.

Here she is:
