    Is it really a fact? Sounds like pure speculation. But if it makes precious Britain look good then it must be true.
    no, I mean its a fact we won 7 out of 10, and they did change the rules shortly after britain dominated the last olympics in cycling.

    But the link that connects those 2 facts is pure speculation, and what draws attention to the statement in the first place.

    why else would they suddenly change the rules? They don't just change the rules because they get bored you know?

    Either way, the IOC clearly didn't like one country dominating one event, so the rule change was meant to balance it out.

    The majority of people would think our dominance is quite impressive even with the rule change.

    Rules change in many sports for many different reasons. Neither you nor I know the exact reasons why, so let's not pretend like we do.

    I was not doubting this. However, the only ones who truly know the reasons for the change (and indeed what these changes are) are the committee in charge.

    but classing it as speculation is a bit of an understatement, it is pretty much definitely because of that. Although it is not a fact, of course.
