The Great British Sporting Weekend!

BBC, Sky News, Daily Mail 30th November 2015

gbflag.pngIt has been a big weekend in sport this weekend with Great Britain coming top in the tennis and heavyweight boxing.

Britain last won the Davis Cup 79 years ago, so beating Belgium in the final was cause for emotional celebrations with the world number 3, Andy Murray, telling the BBC "It's incredible that we managed to win this competition. I didn't know that would ever be possible. It's great." Captain Leon Smith took on the mammoth task of guiding Britain from the ignominy of the third tier to glory in five years which will secure his place as a keynote speaker for years to come.

In boxing, Tyson Fury’s beat Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf. With the match going the full 12, it came down to points with judges unanimously giving the heavyweight title to the Lancashire boxer who picked up the WBA Super, WBO and IBF titles.

Scotland’s women smashed Macedonia in the football, beating them 10-0 and shooting to the top of their group for the Euro 2017 Qualifiers. England’s women also beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 1-0, their first game since coming third in the World Cup in Canada.

And finally, if that wasn’t enough, another first, this time for British Gymnastics, with Bryony Page and Kat Driscoll earning two spots in the women's trampoline event at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. They finished fifth and seventh in World Championships in Denmark which was enough to secure their places in the Olympic GB Team.
