THE GENTLE BRITISH ART OF LOSING
By Martin Hinton

There are some who believe that the British are happier when they lose because winning is somehow embarrassing. When you win you have to shout and scream and deal with all that attention and, worst of all, praise. I wouldn’t go that far. The British like to win, but when they lose they believe in losing well.
But that’s not to say that the British are always losing. On the contrary, Britain has a fine record in competitive sport. Take the recent victory (which, admittedly, you probably haven’t heard of) in the Rugby World Cup final, when the English beat the Australians...at last! And the British haven’t lost a war for ages; Napoleon, Hitler, all dealt with. But in no other nation is so much importance placed on how well one takes defeat. Perhaps it is the feeling that by showing how disappointed one is to have lost, one gives the impression of having suffered a terrible disaster rather than a temporary setback. It might be, paradoxically, the British record of winning, which has kept us free from invasion for a thousand years and led a small nation to rule, briefly, half the world, that allows us to take defeat so well.
We were once a nation of seafarers, and what’s our most celebrated ship? The Titanic. We are a nation of explorers, and not many are more well known than Capt. Robert Scott of the British Antarctic Expedition, 1910, who famously didn’t get to the South Pole first (his team was beaten by a Norwegian!) and died trying to get back. Many of the Antarctic team had no experience of polar conditions, and pulled their sleighs themselves rather than use dogs as the successful Norwegian team did, apparently because Scott thought it more noble; still, they had a jolly good go, didn’t they?
Perhaps it is true that we are uncomfortable with winning and feel happier letting others be the stars. I believe that British players struggle so much at tennis because of the post-match interviews. Players from other nations are happy to say, “I won because my serve was fantastic, my backhand incredible and everything I did went really well.” Most Brits, however, would probably rather lose than have to boast in front of the cameras about how well they had played.
Out of all the countries in the British Isles it’s England that loves a loser the most. The Scots, Irish and Welsh always believe they have a chance against the English at rugby or football, despite the difference in populations, because of their greater Celtic passion. And in Australia and the US, sport is definitely all about winning. For them, there are winners and - well, losers, and nobody wants to be one of those. England have not beaten Australia in Test Match Cricket series for years; this may be because the English play merely hoping to win, and the Australians play hoping to be swallowed up by the ground if they lose, rather than face the shame of returning to their friends and families having lost to the British.
So next time the English cricket team faces the Australians, don’t put your money on them winning; but don’t expect the English to be too bothered if they lose, either. In Britain, we love a heroic failure.
