Join us again as we take a look at 3 people who had the edge this week and 3 people who could have really done with it!
Sarah Thomas became the first person to swim the channel four times non-stop this week when she began the challenge in the early hours of Sunday morning and completed it more than 54 hours later. Thomas who was treated for breast cancer a year ago dedicated her remarkable achievement to “all the survivors out there”. The swim was supposed to be around 80 miles but she ended up swimming around 130 miles due to strong tides. We put her down as an early favourite for winner of the year!
After this week’s Champions League loss Zidane might be asking himself why he decided to come back to an aging Real Madrid side and potentially taint his legacy. Zidane led Madrid to 3 Champions League triumphs before shockingly leaving the club as he feared he had gone as far as he could with the side, and so it was a strange decision to come back so soon. They were outplayed by PSG who were missing their megastars, now Madrid and Zidane have a big few weeks in front of them with Mourinho apparently waiting in the wings.
Remember him from your childhood? The Pokemon trainer who left home at 10 years old to travel the world with a couple of people he had just met. Well after 22 years of losing and struggling on, Ash finally became a Pokemon master this week and taught us all a lesson in perseverance! And while we have all moved on and are 22 years older Ash is still a fresh faced 10 year old albeit with a different voice.
Chesterfield defender Anthony Gerrard sent out an apology this week after he got into a spat on social media where he wrote that he got injured while “rifling a fan’s mother”. Great way to endear yourself to your home fans!
The former Manchester United and Tottenham striker has confirmed his retirement from the game this week, although he has been without a club for the past 18 months. Berbatov said “My last game was more than one year ago, so I think it’s the right time now to stop, and it’s long overdue.” Let’s reminisce by remembering how good Berba was in his prime!
This runner signed up for the Worcester half marathon and completed the race, however where she completed it was 3,200 miles away from the official event. When Sheila signed up she thought it was in her hometown of Worcester Massachusetts, but it was actually across the Atlantic in Worcester UK. She did get some recognition from the UK event however, who said they would send her a medal, t-shirt and participation pack.
