Without question, Chile quickly became supporters' second team at the World Cup... While some would have buckled under the pressure, Sánchez thrived... in Messi's absence, Sánchez was Barcelona's best player last season and there is little doubt that he was Chile's greatest asset at the World Cup...
Cycling itself has had such an upsurge in the past month, that cycle lanes are positively congested and cars are almost a thing of the past! With that in mind and lots of people coming to the studio with tight backs and thighs; I have put down a few key poses to bring some respite yoga to cycling mania.
We are at the half way point of the Summer of Sport and after so much promise, the first half has been exciting but with some very poor results... We are now entering the second week of Wimbledon and as always the quality of the tennis in the first week hasn't disappointed...

When I'm speaking to my friends who are also women in the sport industry, we often find ourselves reflecting that we work in a sector that's predominantly male. It's not a new realisation. And it's not surprising. Sometimes it's a rant, sometimes it's a complaint, and other times it's just an observation of a meeting we had where we were the only woman in the room, or at an event where very few women were present.
It's probably no surprise to most of us that contact lenses are extremely useful to sportsmen and women who don't have 20/20 vision.

So there you have it, the mass exodus of Manchester United luminaries begins. With Nemanja Vidic opting to take the decision out of the hands of United's hierarchy, and maneuvering himself a move to Italy, United's experience within the dressing room is decimated. If Sir Alex Ferguson were in charge, this would never have happened.
Things were very different - 60 years ago - when Roger Bannister became an icon to England and the British Empire by becoming the first to break the four minute mile. For decades people had speculated about whether this barrier could be conquered - and some suggested that you might die in the attempt.
