My Top 10 Sporting Moments – 2016

It’s that time of year again for me to churn out my incredibly well informed, not-at-all-biased (please note the sarcasm here, my ego isn’t yet that big) top ten list of sporting moments that occurred during 2016. It was really hard to choose just…

Rio 2016 Review

It’s all over. Almost as soon as it had begun, the Games of the XXXI Olympiad have ceased to exist. Not that it passed by quietly. The last fortnight was full of drama, suspense, controversy and incredible sporting achievement. Team GB have returned from…

My Top 11 Sporting Moments of 2015

When it comes to sport, pretty much anything and everything has happened in the past 12 months. From tales of widespread corruption and state-funded doping to some of the most remarkable sporting performances ever seen, nothing has been too farfetched for this frankly insane…

Wimbledon 2015 Review

So there it is; after two weeks of racquet smashing, cross-court winners and ridiculous grunting, Wimbledon 2015 is over. Time for the British spectators to put their tennis clobber back in the loft and return to return to the sport(s) they follow for the other…

Calling all football and rugby fans… Don’t hide away just yet!

As the domestic football and rugby seasons come to a close, there are a number of reasons why you shouldn’t put your televisions into hibernation just yet. There is still plenty of action to come between May and August, including the greatest two-team rivalry…

The dark truth behind the great spectacle

Lance Armstrong’s admission to doping earlier this week has opened up a grey area of sport that needs to be addressed – why are sports personnel so afraid to speak up if they know someone is cheating? Because that is what doping is, and…

The year the man became a legend

2012 saw the emergence of Andy Murray as one of the true contenders in the world of tennis. He shrugged off the image that many British sportsmen and women seem to acquire of being ‘chokers’ in the big matches and proved many, many people…
