Watch this full-court alley-oop from Wade to LeBron

The 90-foot lob pass from Dwyane Wade under one basket to LeBron James on the other has been described as like that from an NFL quarter-back. I could do that.

ALTHOUGH WE ALL always feel more tired after a Bank Holiday Weekend, never fear: we’ve made it to Wednesday and the weekend’s not far away. Interesting, though: August 2010 has five Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays – which only happens once every 823 years.

A GALWAY MAN was one of a crew of four that has destroyed a longstanding speed record for rowing across the Atlantic ocean,

Ray Carroll (33) was on the crew that smashed the 114-year-old record, arriving at Scilly, off the coast of Cornwall, yesterday afternoon.

The four left New York 43 days and 21 hours before their arrival – making bits of the previous record, of 55 days and 13 hours.

Carroll was joined by Leven Brown from Edinburgh, Don Lennox from Glasgow and Livar Nysted from the Faroe Islands, between Scotland and Iceland.

The previous record was set by two Norwegian fishermen in 1896.

The four-man crew aboard the ‘Artemis Investments’ craft fought food poisoning as well as 10-metre waves during their effort.

Carroll has rowed since the age of 11 and had previously broken the world record for crossing the Mid Atlantic in 33 days, along with Brown and Lennox.

Carroll told RTÉ the conditions were “testing” and that he was looking forward to relaxing after his marathon task.
