DANIEL Ricciardo dares to dream this year’s F1 world title is still within reach. And with stunning manoeuvres like this, who could argue with him?

JAMES Magnussen reclaimed his crown as sprint king by turning the 100m freestyle into a man-on-man duel with rival Cameron McEvoy.

MARATHON great Steve Moneghetti has lauded Michael Shelley for staring down the might of the Africans to win Commonwealth gold.

STEPHANIE Morton’s time has arrived but her win over roommate Anna Meares in the women’s sprint in Glasgow had been brewing for months.

JESS Trengove was inspired to her bronze medal in the marathon by the news Aussie teammate Michael Shelley had won the men’s race in Glasgow.
