Whatever, now they've done a race they will learn from their experience and be better prepared for the next go.
No, I don't have any more information than what is said on this Forum, I'm just trying to state what appears to be the obvious.
Don't take any offence. If you were guaranteed to win something then their wouldn't be much point in taking part. It wouldn't really be a challenge.
Next time if a Brit does win then then at least he will feel as though he has achieved something.
More than the English Football team have managed to do over the last 40 years. The Greeks have even beaten us at that.
