Andy Murray wins Sport Personality of the year for a record third time.

December 22nd, 2016

Murray, the 2013 and 2015 winner, took Olympic gold, claimed his second Wimbledon title and became tennis’ world number one in a remarkable 2016.

Triathlete Alistair Brownlee was second and show jumper Nick Skelton third.

“It’s been a great year for British sport and I am so proud to have been a part of it,” said 29-year-old Murray as he accepted the award from Miami.

A landmark year for Murray:

  • February 2016: Has first child as wife Kim gives birth to daughter Sophia
  • June 2016: Becomes Wimbledon champion for the second time
  • August 2016: Defends Olympic singles title in Rio
  • November 2016: Replaces Novak Djokovic as world number one

In front of a 12,000-strong audience at Birmingham’s Genting Arena, Murray accepted the award via video-link from Florida, where he is preparing for the 2017 season.

As he took the prize from former British boxing world champion Lennox Lewis and gathered members of his training team around him, he added: “I’d like to thank everyone who voted – I really appreciate your support.”

Conor McGregor Make History At UFC 205 In NYC

November 15th, 2016

Conor McGregor did not ‘come to take part’, he came to ‘take over’ and now he is the first two-division champion in UFC history.

The Notorious electrified the Madison Square Garden crowd with a dominant and measured performance, dropping the former lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez three times in the opening round alone.

The American never established a foothold in the bout, and the referee was forced to call the fight by T.K.O. when McGregor sent his opponent to the canvas once more… And with that stoppage after 3:04 of round two Conor McGregor silenced his critics and further cemented his place in the history books of MMA.

He leaves New York city with both the featherweight, and the lightweight belts, and big decisions to make about his next move.

Man Plunges 25,000ft Without Parachute

October 20th, 2016

Skydiver Luke Aikins lands safely in a net after plummeting to the ground in California without a parachute. A stuntman has fallen 25,000ft from a plane to the ground without wearing a parachute, landing in a net at 120mph.

Luke Aikins, a professional skydiver with 18,000 jumps under his belt, leapt from a plane without a parachute in a stunt broadcast live on television.

He endured forces of nearly 4G as he landed in the net on his back in the Simi Valley, California.

When asked afterwards how he felt, he said: “I’m almost levitating. It’s incredible. To think what just happened… to be honest I just can’t get it out of my mouth – all these guys… everybody. It is awesome.”

The net that 42-year-old Mr Aikins landed in was just 100ft by 100ft.
