The Internet is littered with near miss videos, moments captured on film where men and women have inexplicbly escaped death even as the Grim Reaper’s scythe appears to bearing down upon them. This is one such video.
The fact that no-one including the driver Piero Scavone and navigator Diego D’Hérin didn’t suffer so much as a bruise is an absolute miracle. I’ve watched this video a dozen times and I’m still amazed those lucky people lived to see another day.
Here’s a video of skater James Kelly hurtling down roads at 60mph.
He was filmed as part of a promo shoot for Arbor Skates and at 1.20 you realise why.
Unfortunately things went a little pear shaped for James as he came off during a run at a top speed which resulted in injury, but thankfully nothing too serious.
We covered yesterday that Iceland’s current famous export actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson aka The Mountain from Game Of Thrones lifted this year’s coveted Europe’s Strongest Man title, but it’s not just the men who have a natural ability for physical endurance.
Here’s a collection of the country’s finest female fitness experts and competitors in a video for Iceland Fitness, proving that both sexes from the land of ice and giants have natural physical ability in abundance.
If you’re a fan of Game Of Thrones then you’ll know that the character The Mountain is played by Hafþór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson who hails from Iceland and who also happens to be the strongest man in Europe.
Earlier this year he lifted the title in style in Leeds, UK, (after all it’s what the man lives and trains for), his Game Of Thrones gig is a little side job. He celebrated winning the Atlas stone event by ripping his t-shirt from his torso like it was a sheet of kitchen roll, before declaring:
“I am the future of strength, as I am the King of stones.”
And who in their right mind would argue with that?
For many users of GoPro cameras the biggest challenge is coming up with original ways to use the equipment and record footage.
Now I’m not any exper,t but something leads me to believe this young lady, who filmed her entire gym routine with a GoPro camera, might have found a winning technique, even though her smile is giving me the creeps.
‘Like Betamax, they don’t make them like him any more.’
Ray Hudson is the world’s greatest sports commentator, (discounting Alan Partidge), and the video above proves exactly why.
The former Newcastle United player turned pundit for beIN Sports likes to break down commentary walls and step over onto the other side when players like Ronaldo and Messi score goals.
Gary Lineker, famous for being one of England’s greatest football players, is taking a royal pounding on twitter and it would take someone completely devoid of any humour not to find it funny.
How has this come about? Well a few years back Gary confessed that during the 1990 World Cup match against Ireland he had a bit of an accident and was caught short while playing, (see video above). This sort of thing happens all the time to sportsmen and Lineker being the consummate professional sorted himself out, by wiping his arse on the pitch, and continued to play.
Somehow 24 years later the incident has come back to haunt Gary with people on Twitter reminding the ex-footballer he touched cloth in front of millions of viewers by tweeting: ‘You shat on the pitch,’ at every conceivable chance they get. Infuriated with their troll-like behaviour Lineker embarked on a mass blocking this week which, as any person with even passing knowledge of the Internet will tell you, never, ever works.
It’s just never going to stop!
