Well hello and welcome to another Sport Social. This week sees a poignant day for surfers as they remember fellow pro Andy Irons, some sensational gymnastics moves you won’t believe and the best way for a sport manager to react to worldwide tragedies. On we go, then.

When your arms hurt from the climb and you can finally relax.
I’ve just finished my circuit board session. It kinda doesn’t compare to doing routes in Innsbruck. My forearms hurt just as much though! I think I’m starting to get used to the sickly burning sensation. I might even be starting to enjoy it… 🙃👍💪 . . . 📷 @leahcraneclimbing . . . #trainning #gettingfit #trying
I just love that GB rower and hubby TV adventurer live by the river and can make you feel as if you live there with them! Beautiful pic.

A quad spin on beam?? Blimey. And how happy is she at the end! #smashedit
Amazing turn!! And I love how happy she is at the end!! Nothing like finally hitting that skill after trying and trying. #awesome #Repost @flipflytumble (@get_repost) ・・・ #flashbackfriday Mai Murakami (World Champion on floor!) doing a gorgeous quad turn on beam 😍 She is sooo tiny here! This turn would only be E value though, because the FIG limits the number of turns (in passe) to 3 #maimurakami #japan #beam #queen #fbf
