Thanks for reading.
I thought briefly of giving Guenevere a gold medal in an individual event,
since the team show jumping actually wrapped up two days ago but the
individual events are still going on. But it seemed less rude to overlay
invented winning teams over the actual winning teams than to, however
fictionally and in the obscurity of a second generation webcomic, take an
individual's accomplishment away. Also, when I wrote this cartoon I already
knew that the U.S. team had actually won the event, and I'd've been less
comfortable giving Guenevere the gold in an event that an American hadn't won
or that the winner wasn't yet known.
Also, the other teams and Guenevere's teammates aren't exactly "invented". I often give extras the faces of people I knew when I was the age Arthur is. The people in this cartoon are likenesses of people from the community theatre production of A Midsummer Night's Dream I did when I was nineteen.
Also, I think silver medal winners stand on the right of gold medal winners, and bronze medal winners on the left. Thats' what I planned to do here when I drew the rushes. But, when I tried to assemble the images that way, the perspective seemed all wrong so I swapped them.
