F1: Lewis Hamilton wins the Belgian Grand Prix 2015

September 18th, 2015

Lewis Hamilton took a serene run to victory at the Belgian Grand Prix, with a win from pole that never looked under threat from his team-mate Nico Rosberg, who had to play catch-up after a poor start. It is Hamilton’s sixth win this year and he now leads his team-mate by 28 points in the world championship.

Rosberg came back to match Hamilton’s pace but the gap had been established and the world champion maintained it to the end with aplomb. Rosberg must bring more to the fight if he is to really challenge for the title.

“Great job, thanks so much for everything guys,” he said on his 39th career victory. “It was an amazing weekend for me. Incredible job by the team throughout weekend. Today was a dream ,the whole weekend the car was fantastic.”

Usain Bolt beats Justin Gatlin to win world 100m title

August 28th, 2015

Usain Bolt produced perhaps his greatest performance of all as he put a troubled build-up behind him to beat two-time doper and clear favourite Justin Gatlin to retain his world 100m title.

The controversial Gatlin came into the final on a 28-race unbeaten run and apparently relishing his role as the sport’s bad guy.
But at the same Bird’s Nest stadium in Beijing where Bolt announced himself to the world with two Olympic golds and two world records in 2008, the Jamaican superstar came past a faltering Gatlin at the death to snatch victory by one hundredth of a second.

Bolt’s 9.79 seconds was more than two tenths off his world record, but this was a night for athletics to celebrate victories rather than times. Canada’s Andre de Grasse and young American Trayvon Bromell were both awarded bronzes in 9.92secs.

Few noticed. This was once again the Bolt show, even as the world doubted him, even as his own struggles this summer continued in a semi-final when he stumbled and almost fell. Gatlin had looked unbeatable in running 9.79 seconds in his own semi-final, but starting out in lane seven – US team-mate Tyson Gay between him and Bolt in five – he was the slowest of the main contenders from the block.

Wimbledon 2015

July 14th, 2015

It’s been a jaw dropping year this year at Wimbledon with 2 weeks of intense tennis, we’ve had tantrums, trick shots and even grass eating.. Yes Djokovic ate some of the centre court grass.

Here at Extreme Insurance we want to share our top 5 moments from Wimbledon 2015..

In 5th Place we have Benoit Paire’s Outburst..

Benoit Paire took his frustration out on a line judge’s chair during his match against Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain, and promptly received a warning from the umpire.

The Frenchman went on to lose the second-round tie 2-6 4-6 6-3 6-3 6-3

And yes we do have the video

Not 1st place for Lewis Hamilton but 4th.

As many of you heard, Lewis Hamilton was turned away on Sunday from Centre court Royal box which resulted in him missing the men’s final for not being dressed ‘Appropriately’. Lewis was turned away for not wearing a jacket, tie and shoes, after having arrived in a bright floral shirt and a hat. His spokesperson said: “due to a misunderstanding over dress code, he is disappointed to have missed the final”.

Oh no Lewis.

In a very Beautiful 3rd place we have the one the only.. David Beckham.

Now if you haven’t already seen this.. i suggest you watch.. and watch again. Former England football captain, David Beckham shows he’s equally adept with his hands after a tennis ball flies into the royal box, much to the delight of the Centre Court crowd.. and women all over the country.

The ball finds its way into the crowd after deflecting off a line judges chair during the men’s doubles semi finals.

Of course we have the video for you to see.

In 2nd Place, well 1st also.. is Serena williams.

Serena Williams beat Spain’s Garbine Muguruza to win Wimbledon for the sixth time and complete the ‘Serena Slam’ as the holder of all four major titles.
The 33-year-old American won 6-4 6-4 on Centre Court to claim her 21st Grand Slam title and third of 2015. Williams withstood a late fightback from 20th seed Muguruza, 21, to come through in one hour and 23 minutes.

Williams won her sixth Wimbledon title and her first since 2012.

Well done Serena on another year being Ladies Wimbledon Champion.

And in 1st we have.. of course Novak Djokovic

Defending champion Novak Djokovic saw off seven-time champion Roger Federer in four sets to win his third Wimbledon and ninth Grand Slam title.

The Serb, 28, won 7-6 (7-1) 6-7 (10-12) 6-4 6-3 to overtake the likes of Jimmy Connors, Andre Agassi and Ivan Lendl in the all-time list of major winners.
Federer, 33, had hoped to become the first man to win Wimbledon eight times.

The Swiss won a thrilling second set tie-break but Djokovic came through to win in two hours and 56 minutes.

A very well done to Novak Djokovic on becoming Men’s Wimbledon Champion 2015.
