Nadal unite for the first time on the same side of a tennis court This was the sport’s equivalent of a solar eclipse Thirteen years after their first singles match against each other Nadal and Federer played their first doubles match together Where At the Laver Cup which made its debut in September in Prague and which is likely the closest thing that tennis will ever have to the Ryder Cup in golf The format was similar — Team Europe took on Team World in a fast-paced three-day competition — and so was the unusual intensity that format generated Like their peers in golf tennis’ top male pros made the most of their opportunity to cross national boundaries root openly for each other and show the emotions that their formal individualistic sports normally force them to keep in check Federer

basketball players from the tiny city of Caiara Paraiba in the north-east of Brazil won their match against Motiva College Team in the State Youth School Games awarding them with a place in the Brazilian Youth School Championships in Curitiba Shortly after celebrating their victory the team were told that the local government could not provide sufficient funds to allow the boys to travel to the games It would have taken three days to travel by bus from Paraiba to Curitiba in the State of Parana So Caiara a social project for public school students offered their place to the private school Motive College Instead of taking them up on the offer Motiva refused and parents and students of Motiva College started a campaign to raise funds to allow the Caiara team to travel The campaign gained national and international support Lucas Bebe from the Toronto Raptors in the NBA supported the appeal In total 36000 real was raised (just over $11000) Through the solidarity and generosity of the supporters the Caiara boys travelled by plane many taking their first ever flight to Curitiba on 17 September to play against the current runners-up of the championship Caiara lost by 59 to 20 but the support excitement and the experience was worth far more than the result “When we found out that we could not go there was a kid who could not sleep I had his mother calling me” coach Edynho Nash nicknamed after his idol former NBA superstar Steve Nash said “Sport is not just a game It is not just a question of competing for a medal a trophy or a status It can go much further with solidarity” Goal of his life Olympique Marseille fan Kamel Zaroual went onto the Stade Velodrome pitch on 24 September to kick-off proceedings between the hosts and Toulouse The reason Kamel was invited to take part in the kick-off was because he had cycled across France to raise money for a children’s charity He pedalled 2000km to watch his beloved club play Amiens And did it all in a Marseille jersey Taking to the hallowed turf Kamel was instructed by referee Benoit Millot to simply pass the ball back to one of his heroes Dimitri Payet Kamel however had something else in mind Kamel ran through the Toulouse half of the field and calmly slotted home past 18-year-old Toulouse goalkeeper Alban Lafont before he celebrated with unadulterated emotion The emotion and how much it meant to him was clear as tears ran down his face and a warm embrace with Marseille manager Rudi Garcia followed And to make things better Marseille went on to win the game 2-0 I’m still standing Ninety-three days 4050 nautical miles and almost two million strokes That’s what it took Chris Bertish to paddle across the Atlantic Ocean on a stand-up paddle (SUP) board Starting off the coast of Morocco he travelled for more than three months to reach English Harbour Antigua where he arrived haggard and grateful to still be standing The weather and exhaustion worked against him He had been surviving on freeze-dried meals for his entire journey Waves threatened to swamp him and he had several run-ins with sharks who tested the material of his board to see if it was edible Bertish recounted the challenging conditions he had to face Relentless trade winds slowed his progress though he kept to his grueling pace as he paddled 12-15 hours every day “It’s more than the endurance side that was difficult to keep going I had to manage the elements and manage myself mentally I had massive system malfunctions that I was trying to troubleshoot myself” His board — and with it his feet and ankles — were also underwater most of the trip His storage compartments would take on water too forcing him to open them even if it meant risking losing his food "I pretty much constantly felt like I was sinking” he said “Every two weeks I had to open up the hatches and pump out the water but that’s where my food was It was a double-edged sword” Bertish made the journey as a way to raise money for charity and test the limits of possibility The Lunchbox Fund Operation Smile and Signature of Hope were the three main beneficiaries of the reported $380000 raised by the epic journey Chris Bertish emphasised that this journey was worth all of the hardship he faced as the money would be donated to charities that help children in South Africa “Knowing the impact this will have” he said “made every day out on the open ocean worthwhile” Nothing can stop me On 9 December 2011 Lai Chi-wai was driving his motorcycle home when he was struck by two cars and thrown onto the road The car accident left the then
