The best of the week’s sport social media

Another cracking week in the world of sport brought to you from the best of the week’s sport social media.

The fabulous result of England’s World Cup Cricket win. This from a former England men’s cricketer.

‘Don’t often?’ Not sure I’ve ever seen it. Fair play.

England women’s cricket + World Cup win = flying. England women’s football + World Cup semi finals = flying. England women’s rugby + World Cup winners… oh.

What the actual…

Shark attack survivor and amputee Mike Coots (@mikecoots) isn’t afraid of sharks. When he was 18, Mike was attacked by a tiger shark while surfing off the coast of his hometown of Kilauea, on the Hawaiian island of Kauai’s north shore; it took Mike five weeks to recover from the near-fatal accident, which resulted in an amputated leg. “The hardest part wasn’t losing a limb,” says the photographer and still-avid surfer, who is outfitted with a carbon fiber prosthetic leg. “It was being out of the water.” Almost 20 years after the attack, Mike is more of a shark lover than ever, and he has devoted his life to being their advocate. “I love the beauty of them surviving mass extinctions,” he describes. “They’ve outlived dinosaurs. They’re older than trees. The entire Earth has been wiped out, species have completely disappeared, and sharks have existed and survived through that. I believe, strongly, that they’re here for a reason.” Photo by @mikecoots

In case you were wondering about the difference between a coach and a personal trainer…

Sometimes you just gotta own it. ?

A cracking match is a cracking match, no matter the gender.

World’s best gymnast Simone Biles everyone. What a legend for sharing this hilarious clip.

Turns out there is an audience for women’s football, although now that Germany are out I suspect there might be fewer viewers…

Love, love, love these Dutch football fans.

A weather tweet – hooray (regular readers of Sports Liberated know weather tweets please me greatly, being English an’ all).

Yeah, bit late for a spoiler alert from me as I mentioned the result in tweet above, but you know, Germany lost.

More weather, same game! Yep, the pitch is fine to play on, yep it really is… oh.

This would be on My Sport Bucket List if a) I was a fan of small spaces and b) my ears didn’t hurt when I dive. So amazing, but happy to see adventure film-maker Lukasz Warzecha do it instead!
