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...

My father, a long-time bowler—a “Gringo” who for a short time toured with the Salvadorian team in the 1960’s—began his passion for bowling early in his youth. We, his family, followed. He would later encourage my husband and me to bowl with our own children in a family league.

My father had a true passion for bowling, and he was certainly one to emulate, a perfectionist to form, his bowling scores and average proved it. Although he never did bowl a 300 game, he was nevertheless right at 300’s door many [frustrating] times.

Bowling soon became our family’s obsession, too; in no-time... Read More

I do believe in Mermaids, I do believe in “Mermaids”,

I Do, I Do, I Do !!

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.

Suspicious minds and accusations’ quickly started flying and soon right after one of the broadcasters, a well known coach on the air quickly stated “Her swimming was... Read More

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.

"It means a lot, Grenada will be going crazy right now," James... Read More

They have a good reason if they seem somewhat nervous -- they are at the start of a 1300 meter "race" down the side of a mountain-cliff.

The competition is the World BASE Race, and the title that these athletes compete for is 'The World's Fastest Flying Human Being'.

Competitors race each other to the bottom of the cliff, across the "finish line" using only a wingsuit, gravity and once across the finish line deploy their parachutes to land safely. A mistake in this race has consequences that are far more severe than a sprained ankle.
