The Prince Of Wales Round About

Have you seen the new people Harrogate Borough Council have put on the Prince of Wales roundabout near Comet?
They have put four runners running around the roundabout for the Olympics, but they have got something wrong with them.  They are running around in a clockwise direction but if you go to the Olympic Games they will run in an anti-clockwise direction around the running track. This is because the Greeks who started the Olympic Games ran in an anti-clockwise direction and we all followed that tradition. It is also an advantage for the runner because the earth spins clockwise on its axis so the ground is slowly edging towards you as you’re running anti-clockwise.
I personally think the Council should do some research before they placed the runners.
