The British Empire has centuries and centuries of history behind them. Some of their history is considered to be bad while other moments in their history is considered to be a marvel of history. More than half of the world is still controlled by the British Empire. Countries that are a part of the empire includes Canada, the thirteen colonies of the United States, the Bahamas, South West Africa, New Zealand, Australia, India, Burma, Egypt, Jamaica and many more. Due to having such a massive empire it is the British who are considered to still be the best in world sports. Countries like Canada have allowed for the empire to do exceptionally well in the Winter Olympics while countries like South West Africa, Jamaica, Australia and Egypt have allowed for the empire to do amazing in the summer Olympics. Often people wonder why these countries just don’t break away from the empire so that they may get all of the glory themselves. The reason for this is because if Egypt, India, Kenya, Sudan or any other violent countries went to war it would be the British that would protect them. This is why the British Empire will always remain as the true world leader. Americans might consider themselves to be the world power but if the British Empire felt like it they could easily over throw them in a matter of months. You can expect the British Empire to win the Summer Olympics in 2016.
