Is it just me or are parkour gyms just soft-play adult playgrounds? Whatever, it looks flippin’ awesome! Check out Farshad Biglari and pals in their fab training facility. Meanwhile, Britain takes on Canada with a dramatic snowfall and just stunning, stunning photography of an ultralight trike aircraft over the Sand Dunes National Park of Colorado. No, I’ve no idea what that is either… Welcome to this week’s Sport Social.
This is an actual thing. I checked. 😭😭

This is what counts for a snowstorm in the UK. Have some of that Canada.

Probably find Hansel and Gretel in the area too, munching on the building.

When you use people as a slalom course!

Super dooper skier Mikaela Shiffrin and her nan. Too cute.
Hope you’re having a day like this!
When you couldn’t possibly be more pleased with your unexpected model.

Now I don’t like caving per se but if you’re gonna do it, you gotta do it somewhere like this. A-mazing.
Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) – Kačna jama (cave) is situated near Divača, in Slovenia, which is located at an altitude of 435 m (1500ft). The cave is 280 m (900ft) deep and is the third longest cave in Slovenia. The iconic twin skylight portals allow cave explorers access into the cave where the Reka River can be seen again flowing steadily underground towards the coast. Ever since I first saw a picture of these majestic twin portals filtering sunlight into the cave, I dreamed of one day visiting it with my camera. Finally, a few months ago, my dream came true. Over the next few weeks, I will unravel a portfolio of photographs that was shot for @NatGeoAdventure from the famous river caves of Slovenia, birth place of speleology and home to the ‘human fish’. With my caving colleagues I visited 8 caves, each one varied and different with its own personality. For more from this amazing story, please follow the link in the bio of @shonephoto.

Those Brownlee boys – just have to be good at everything, don’t they. 👏👏
Awesome moves from one of the world’s best surfers and almost-shark-biscuit.
I just asked if you’d close the garage door…
Doesn’t matter if you’re a former Manchester United footballer and Champions League winner – you’re still an embarrassing dad in the real world!

Stunning pic, this. Stunning.
An ultralight trike aircraft over the Sand Dunes National Park of Colorado. As a continuation of the @sonyaplha A7riii camera prototype road trip, @chrisburkard I have brought the team back together to tell a more focused story on The Great Sand Dunes National Park through the eyes of veteran pilot @shotsfromabove. Stayed tuned as we explore this landscape with the new camera from this immersive way of documenting a landscape. I hope we can use this these techniques in the future to protect #publiclands under threat! ~ @radiantimages @camp4collective @snackfarmer @tentides @greatsanddunesnps @rudy.le @ksundman #protectbearsears
You may be a World Cup-winning cricketer but you still need help from your old man when it comes to decorating the Christmas tree.

I’m surprised Usain Bolt hasn’t had a statue in his home country Jamaica until now!
Climbing Yosemite’s finest, El Capitan. Hey you, the one who’s afraid of heights. Best turn away again here.
by @jimmy_chin It’s been a while since I wasn’t hauling cameras on El Cap. Nice to get in a scenic cruise on the Nose w @timmyoneill….the big stone continues to inspire….always….and Timmy still can’t stop making everything hilarious. Good to have certain things in life you can depend on. #elcapitan #thegreatroof #NIAD
