Sport social: An emotional recovery & furious cyclists

Having been unplugged in Greece last week this may well be a short and sweet version of sport social but let’s plough on shall we?

I’ve caught up with the world gymnastics champs so might be heavily tilted that way… let’s see.

If you see any fab sport related tweets, Instas, Facebook posts, blogs, do let us know. Can be anything from elite athletes to us sport fans. Tweet us what you find at @sportsliberated.

This article has NOT gone down well with cyclists…

You won’t want to miss this โ€“ the best save EVER in gymnastics!

GB figure skater Penny Coomes horrifically smashed her knee cap to smithereens but she’s back, and along with partner Nick Buckland has only gone and qualified for February’s Winter Olympics!

To the opera for this British athlete for one big surprise

So not last night but the night before….this happened! To my surprise I was taken back to my the spot where me and Mike had our first date. I was smiling from ear to ear as it brought back all the memories when I was asked by him to be accompanied to the Royal opera house(not the usual first date). Fantastic idea babe proper romantic @aireyys he is. SWIPE . . . When the night gets even better. You have no idea but given instructions just to wear something you've never worn before. I was told to take a seat at the dining table. I was taking in the luxurious surroundings and selfie taking while babe used the toilet. Little did I know he returned to then get down on one knee and ask me to marry him. OMG I was in so much shock but my guy done well. SWIPE . . Future MRS EDWARDS whaaaaaaa ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ . . #engagement #engagementring #ldn #london

Photo by @_fabiozingg Boredom brought Fabio Zingg (@_fabiozingg) to photography. Two years ago, when he was restless on a family vacation, the now 17-year-old from Busswil, Switzerland, picked up a camera for the first time. During the week, heโ€™s a commercial banking apprentice but when the weekend rolls around, he always has his camera in tow. โ€œIt is always a new adventure, and I am always impressed with how beautiful nature is,โ€ says Fabio, who is particularly fascinated with playing with range. โ€œThe larger a mountain appears and the smaller the person is, the more it becomes clear how small we truly are.โ€ Explore the Swiss mountain town St. Moritz with Fabio on our Instagram story right now. โ›ฐ
