FORMULA ONE…

The British Grand prix has come and gone, and Vettel has won it. It did not come without drama and crashes during the race. Hamilton qualified for pole but had a bad start which allowed Vettel to get away, but as Hamilton was trying to get back in the race, Kimi Raikanon hit his car which made him spin. He was given a 10second penalty while Hamilton raced from the last place to come second in an explosive race which brought out the safety car twice due to crashes. Mercedes did not go for a change of tyres towards the end of the race when the first safety car came out, this in a way hampered them because Bottas could not maintain the lead which eventually allowed Vettel to take the lead and the win. Also, Hamilton overtook his teammate to come in second and Kimi was also aggressive during the race after the 10 seconds penalty, he came back smoking and came in third overtaking Bottas who came in 4th.

The World Cup

The Semi-finalist are here. It started with 32countries from all over the world, now we are left with four teams from Europe. Belgium who defeated Brazil enroute to the Semi-final, will face France who knocked out Uruguay. England also who did not need to enter second gear against Sweden, would face Croatia in the second semi-final who had it tough trying to knockout the host who did not go out easy. Hazard, Mbappe, Harry Kane and Modric the number 10s of each team, the men that have kept things moving during this world cup, though Lukaku has been an absolute beast. Let us watch out, but my prediction is simple, Belgium vs Croatia for the final.

Wimbledon Open 2018

In the Tennis world, things are heating up in the One of the Grand slam of the year, the Wimbledon open. Usual suspects are still in the running for the trophy. In the men’s category; Federer, Djokovic, Nadal are in the round of 16 still vying to be crowned champion while in the women’s side, Serena Williams is through to the round of 16 and she is balling, I hope she wins it for her daughter, she has earned it if you ask me. Venus Williams on the other hand, could not go past the round of 32 sadly.

A former Thai navy diver has died while taking part in efforts to rescue 12 boys and their football coach trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand.  Officer Saman Gunan lost consciousness on his way out of the Tham Luang cave complex, where he had been delivering air tanks. The boys have been trapped for nearly two weeks in a chamber in the cave. They ventured in while the cave was dry but were caught out by a sudden deluge of rain, which flooded the system.

The group was found by British rescue divers after 10 days in the cave, perched on a rock shelf in a small chamber about 4km (2.5 miles) from the cave mouth. Teams of Thai and international divers have since supplied them with food, oxygen and medical attention, but there are mounting concerns about the oxygen level in the chamber, which officials said had fallen to 15%. The usual level is 21%.

As at when writing I have not confirmed if the boys have been rescued but may the soul of Saman Gunan rest in peace. He is definitely a hero.
