This week’s sport social also sees romance on a race track, funny (but not painful) sport fails, emotive adverts, gender equality progress in Saudi Arabia, sadness, skills and super-surprising cross-country attire…
What? It’s sport… kind of.

You can’t use your baby in an ad, it’s just not… oh, this is so cute.
There are so many reasons to quit, but even more to keep playing. Even if you don’t go pro, sports can teach you so much. So keep playing. #sistersinsweat #gatoradepartner @gatorade pic.twitter.com/ejVzVjDvpR

I used to do gymnastics – this is SERIOUSLY impressive. His ankles will be mushed before too long though. That landing. Ouch.

Could this kid BE any happier! Come on Maria, cheer up. How can you not be happy around this little fella?
Erm, four points: Are those yoga shoes? Your poor neck. How long did you stay up there for? Is there some Photoshop jiggery pokery going on or is this real?
I’m no expert but pretty sure there’s no surf in rock pools…
More from the series, sporty types just can’t sit still even on holiday.
How? How does she not get tangled up in her own hair doing this?
SPORTY TYPES. Just sit down and relax will you!
Heights don’t bother me. You might feel different looking at this photo.
When I see a picture like this, my heart stil beats faster. Winning the #worlcup in Champagny in 2015 was just one of those perfect moments. The competition structure has always been one of my favourite ones, but I didn‘t manage to climb well enough in the first two editions of this comp. in 2015 it all came together and it reminds me how many happy moments the #iceclimbingworldcup has given me over the years. So thankful 🙏 . And thanks to @lehhaaa for catching the perfect moment!! . . . #iceclimbing #iceaxes #climbing #eisklettern #arrampicata #climbing #climbinglife #angelikarainer #kikuapples @berghausofficial @grivel @lasportivagram @uiaamountains
When you lose your leg to a tiger shark when you’re a kid and go on to be a shark conservationist 👏
@mikecoots getting to experience a peaceful dive with a Hawaiian tiger shark yesterday on a shoot with @oceanramsey and @abc4explore. Mike lost his right leg to a tiger shark when he was a kid surfing the north shore of Kauai and despite his loss Mike is a huge shark conservationist. This was not his 1st tiger shark dive since his loss but this was his 1st tiger shark dive in Hawai‘i which was amazing to film. Mike is a absolute legend for standing up for sharks and showing the world that we can #coexist and how sharks are so important to the health of our oceans. I’m so grateful for inspirational people like Mike, @bethanyhamilton, @captaincook_2 and @pauldegelder that #helpsavesharks #saveourseas #weneedsharks #apexpredatornotmonster #love #shark #stopsharkfinsoup🚫🔼 #saynotoplastic #cagethefear photo by #juanoliphant using @aquatech_imagingsolutions
No need for translation here. Rugby is brutal.
Yeah, okay, this is a pretty decent jump for a kid. For many adults too.

For years I’ve sought out life’s challenges – seeking finish lines in marathons and triathlons all over the world. Along the way, I’ve helped others find their own victories in life – as a mentor and a coach I’ve empowered many people with amputations to adapt and thrive through sport. I believe we can train ourselves to be tough and I am here to show the world how tough you can be.

Uber amazing gymnast Simone Biles gives thanks for her family on Thanksgiving in moving post.
This is the time of year to remember what we are thankful for and I am most thankful for my parents. They gave my sister and me the opportunity to have a loving family and happy life. There are no words to express my gratitude to them for adopting us. All children deserve a loving family. Let’s celebrate together and be thankful during #NationalAdoptionMonth
When an England cricketer returns home from the Ashes to some good niece hugs. ❤️
Even world champ diver Tom Daley gets it wrong sometimes. Still an amazeballs dive though.
Oh come on Usain, you can’t be good at everything… can you?
Where exactly does a climber go from here? 😮😮
WATCH OUT! Doof.
I remember getting involved in a beer snake while watching an Aussie cricket match at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Not a patch on this one though!
