The best of the week’s sport social media

This week’s sport social media starts off with a karaoke-ing golfer, makes you smile midway with a sibling cheering on her sister to world championship glory and ends with three 50-something ladies leaping into some cold water… and they’re very happy about it. Enjoy!

When a golfer tries to pick himself up after he has achieved an unwanted Grand Slam of runner-up placings in all four majors ?

One of gold-medal hopefuls at 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang takes to slacklining…

So sad to see the big man go… I was there to say goodbye… Great photo this from one Lawrence Barretto

Another fab jumping photo. American alpine skier Mikaela Shiffrin currently training in New Zealand.

The Rooney’s get all mushy on us.



The British Downie sisters really go all out to achieve the same in their gymnastics careers… ouch.

Because we don’t already look similar enough. I wanted to get a scar to match her as well @bdownie92 ??‍♀️

Lewis Hugh has to do this to keep reminding us of the melting ice caps. Brrrr.

GB short track speed skaters have a funny way of relaxing…

Now this is a rally!

Wales’ Mel Clay can’t believe where her dream of playing rugby has taken her.

For the love of… this is ridiculous.

Gymnasts struggle to relax even on their honeymoon ?

That’s right, we’ve got a prince supporting our England women’s rugby team.

I’m actually surprised they don’t already do this… American football teams have massive distances to travel, don’t they? A confused Brit.

Oh yes. Unashamed happy quote about Brit athlete at world champs.

Why we all love sport.

Erm, ouch!

Just have a chit chat at the end of the race why don’t you, fellas?

It’s entirely possible these two climbers are living their sporting dream…

When women’s mainstream media start getting in on the sporting act ????

Fab scenes in the Netherlands as the women’s team celebrate winning euro 2017 with a victory parade.



If only Brit hammer thrower Sophie Hitchon could regroup in peace!



Now correct me if I’m wrong but that doesn’t seem like a real smile to me…

Watching BBC Radio 5live commentators call Laura Muir’s agonising 1500m run at the world championships is fascinating, non?

Wonderfully re-imagined quote for community focus on young  people in the UK.



Well, it would have been practical at least…

The father-coach/daughter combo who achieved the longest ever throw in the heptathlon – 58m!



Not a big fan of stats but flippin’ ‘eck.

How many?

One of these two has no medals and it’s not Mo!


When the big man doesn’t quite make it ? (Video from long jumper turned presenter Greg Rutherford)

Holly Bradshaw had been sobbing on the track moments before after missing out on a medal in the world champs javelin final…

Wild swimming, wild ladies, love it! (Yes, this is from Aug 4 and not technically in this week but just go with it…)

One of the best skiers ever… struggles to get out of a slippery car park. ?

Super duper climbing shot this.
