The English cricket team may be hopeless (as the news put it last night, "finding ever more improbable ways to lose"), but all is not completely doom and gloom in British sport. Yesterday not only did Britain's Lizzy Yarnold take her fourth victory in the skeleton this season, but Andrew Musgrave comprehensively beat the Norwegian cross-country sprinters in their national championships*. Cue humorous headlines, national embarrassment, and interview questions about skiing in a kilt.

*For obvious reasons, the UK's national skiing championships are not particularly competitive on a global scale. Norway's, on the other hand, are the best, and they kindly let us play.
