A flash and a peek
February 12 , 2014

In all parts of the world or organization, efforts are put into the activities of the year right from the beginning of the year up till the end; targets are set, materials are sourced, recruitments are done, processes are initiated, obstacles are encountered and maybe surmounted, helps are rendered to those who need them and at the end of it all as a fiscal, business, financial or athletic year stocks are taken, the recruited are appraised, accomplishments are observed, recognized and noted, failures are castigated and rectified, and above all a roll out is done for the new year. The sporting world is not an exception. Let us take a glance into the highlights of how the sporting world faired in 2013 and take a peep into whom and what may make headlines in 2014.

2013 is a year that witnessed plenty of victories laced with scandals and the year recorded one of the biggest scandals in sporting history. It was officially revealed on global television channel when Lance Armstrong admitted using performance enhancing drug. Armstrong revealed his terrible secret in an interview with Oprah Winfrey on the famous Oprah Winfrey Show.

Adam Scott was one of the lucky men of the year as the Australian finally won the US Masters after failing to clinch the coveted trophy countless times. It was a good sporting success that rated so highly as one of the biggest stories of the year. 

The most pathetic of all the stories from 2013 relating to a sportsman and arguably there was none more outrageous or unsettling than the fall from grace of Paraolympian Oscar Pistorius. He was a delight to watch at the 2012 Paralympics Games in London but the South African was accused and charged with murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his house in Pretoria.

The soccer world witnessed some tremendous merry-go-round; Nigeria won the AFCON trophy after so many years of wait, Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down as the manager of Manchester United after an illustrious span at the realm and was replaced with former Everton manager David Moyes. The Special One; Jose Mourinho became The Happy one as he was confirmed as Chelsea manager for the second time. Bayern Munich completed a league and cup treble after winning the DFB-Pokal, Bundesliga and Champions League.

The king of the track Usain Bolt was left in awe and couldn’t quite believe it after Justin Gatlin beat him by one-hundredth of a second in the 100m at the Diamond League meeting in Rome. Serena Williams had her bags full of trophies as she was on top of her game in the tennis court.

As we look forward into the expectations and thrills that the New Year 2014 brings, let us have a look at some of the events that is going to take the centre stage in the year. The tennis faithful are on the front row of the action when the court will witness a raise of dust as the Australian Open kicks off between 13-26 January, in Melbourne and the Davis Cup by January 31.  The vibrant city of New York is the next stop as it hosts the Super Bowl XLVIII which will be held at MetLife Stadium. Adam Scott was in fine form in 2013 when he won the US Masters and he needs to do better than last year if he is to defend his title when the 2014 US Masters gets underway in April 11-14.  The most football-obsessed, party-time country, Brazil is set to host the biggest sporting event in the world as FIFA World Cup holds June 12-July 13. The Formula 1 Motor Racing is next in Le Mans, June 14-15 and finally the nations assemble at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, July 23-Aug 3. 

The year is definitely loaded with so much for the sporting world to look forward to. The sweat and tears will be captured by waiting camera lens as emotions are betrayed positively or negatively. It is surely not going to be a disappointing year, only time will tell.
