Which international sport is your country best at?

well as an englishman my options are fairly limited at the moment considering we're pretty poor at just about everything right now so i'll have to go for something like rowing or snooker. we're quite good at rowing, steve redgrave, 5 gold medals and all that caper. ..




oh and no kiwi's allowed in this thread as your answer is too easy!

I actually saw Chestnut win it because my brother was watching it and I walked in at the end, and the announcer commented that Joey Chestnut "changed the course of the nation" with his victory.

Cricket

But it's that much to be proud about. There's only about 8 or 9 nations who really give a proper damn about it anyway.

Any nations that is one of the best 20 footballing nations has a lot to be proud about. The only truly global game.

agreed. and more and more players from places like africa, asia and oceana are coming to play in the big european leagues. in the next few years the hegemony that europe/south america holds over international football may not be so exclusive.

I have two countries.

Canada - Curling - world ranking 1.

Great Britain - believe it or not, Curling - world ranking 2. It is a British created sport so I suppose it's fitting.

Canada and Britain are also good at rowing, darts, snooker.
