Racism is an ugly and repulsive belief that millions of people around the world still believe in this poisonous mentality. Therefore, it is always good to hear of stories of people who took a stand against racism despite what people thought of them. Today’s story is about two professional baseball players. One that had to face the evils of racism everywhere he went…and another who decided to show people how he felt about racism and be a friend to his teammate.
Jackie Robinson was the first black to play major league baseball. Breaking baseball’s color barrier, he faced jeering... Read More
Trainer Nicky Henderson invited the press to an open day at his Seven Barrows stable earlier this week and it was impossible not to be impressed by the wealth of talent on display heading into the sport's centrepiece meeting, the 2013 Cheltenham Festival.Henderson is aiming around “35-40” at the festival in March and, with several of these already priced up as market leader for their respective targets, he is understandably a short-priced favourite to be the leading trainer over the four days, but what are the chances of repeating last season's feat of seven winners?That's as many winners as...

I don’t know about you but I sure spotted one of them last week at the 2012 Olympics. The 16 year old Mandarin Mermaid “Ye Shiwen” who blew everyone’s mind while she dominated the world in winning the 400 metres Olympics swimmers race. Then she did it again taking charge to her second gold by victory in the 200 m individual medley race.

If a world championship title in the 400-meter wasn't enough, toss in Olympic Gold. And a new national holiday.
19-year old Kirani James took gold in the Men's 400m run on Monday, winning with a time of 43.94 seconds becoming the first Grenadian to win an Olympic gold medal in any event.
"He was in control all the way. Under 44 seconds for the first time in his career - we figured he would do it eventually and he did it just at the right time," said four-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Johnson afterwards.
