9 November 2018 3:28 AM Canberra school teacher breaks triathlon world record

Canberra school teacher Laura Marshall has set a new triathlon world record and become the first ACT women to swim the English Channel. Marshall became the first Australian women to complete the gruelling Enduroman Arch to Arc, an ultra-endurance triathlon from London to Paris, solo. Marshall completed the 140-kilometre run, 35k swim and 300km cycle 13

6 November 2018 9:40 AM $20 million McEvoy savours feeling money can't buy

The win took McEvoy’s prizemoney earnings past the $20m barrier for 2018. He won the $13m Everest four weeks ago on Redzel before adding the $7m Cup. McEvoy had his slice of luck on Tuesday. When The Cliffsofmoher broke down passing the post for the first time, McEvoy was directly in the line of fire and was lucky to miss him. Having avoided that, he feared 14

5 November 2018 7:51 AM Gosden looks to finish golden year by breaking Melbourne Cup jinx

Trainer John Gosden has a remarkable year - winning the Ascot Gold Cup, the Arc De Triomphe and Breeders' Cup turf - but his greatest achievement could come at Flemington on Tuesday if Muntahaa can break the English jinx in the Melbourne Cup. Cracksman, Enable and Roaring Lion will fight out the horse of the year title in Europe, and all carried the Gosden 15

20 October 2018 8:20 AM Saeed had the Solution in battle of the blue armies

In recent times it is the Irish operation that has had the best of things, O'Brien's genius and the potent bloodlines of the super sire Galileo – represented in this race by The Cliffsofmoher and The Taj Mahal – giving them an edge. Charlie Appleby, a trainer well known to Australian racegoers, gave Sheikh Mohammed his first English Derby winner carrying 13

20 October 2018 2:44 AM Gurinder Sandhu ready to bust through another barrier

If that hadn't happened, he might not have been in the position to replicate those heroics against the fourth-best one-day outfit in the world - but it did. "I’ll be looking forward to that game and it’ll be a nice little test to see where I’m at. I’ve played two of them before so it’s almost kind of a checkpoint game to see where you’re at and what you need to work on, and how much more improvement 16

13 October 2018 5:59 AM Amphitrite adds Thousand Guineas as Darren Weir dominates

He was confident until the barrier draw, which gave him pause for thought before he decided to push on. "She was in great shape but I didn't know if any of my three fillies were good enough, but they all ran as good as they could run," Weir said. Carted into the race after settling last, jockey Craig Williams just found clear running and ran them down one by one. Weir was certain 30

2 October 2018 10:07 PM 2019 AFL premiership betting: West Coast sceptics still behind the eight ball

The doubt was still there as September rolled along, with even Melbourne — who the Eagles smashed by 66 points in a preliminary final — favoured more to win the flag before that clash in Perth, despite playing in their first finals series since 2006. An inaugural interstate club in the AFL, the Eagles weren't favoured to win the 2018 grand final, despite 15

2 October 2018 4:29 AM Grand final hero's game rated best finals performance ever

The Shuey score of 35.7 is based on several key statistics that measure how effective each of the 44 players afield were, with the Victorian native smashing the previous high mark set in last year's grand final by the rampaging Dustin Martin, who picked up the Norm Smith and Brownlow medals in Richmond's drought-breaking 2017. Champion Data rated Martin 15

27 September 2018 7:26 AM Former Socceroo aiming high with dive into cannabis industry

Former Socceroos winger Mark Bresciano may have lost his passion for football but he's found a new lease of life as an investor in a company that will grow medicinal cannabis. Let's be blunt; it's a move that has left him open to a few puns, with stories comparing him to Walter White from Breaking Bad, while British tabloid The Sun was quick to suggest 10

9 September 2018 8:26 PM It is Serena Williams who owes an apology to umpire Carlos Ramos

It happened at the 1987 US Open. I was the chair umpire for the fourth-round stadium court match between John McEnroe and Slobodan Zivojinovic where I issued a warning, point penalty and a game penalty against McEnroe. The game penalty, for a string of obscenities directed at me, came at 4-5, costing McEnroe the set and making the match one set all. John McEnroe 26
