Safe to say Greece’s Ioannis Maniatis will never top this jaw-dropping 60-yard bomb he hit today in a friendly against Australia. Not a bad way to peak.
There is a man in Australia who goes out into the bushland of Far North Queensland to live out his caveman fantasies. The practice is called primitive technology, which he describes as “a hobby where you make things in the wild completely from scratch using no modern tools or materials.” Lest the vagueness of “things”…
I am Australian. I have noticed online that people who are not Australian seem to work under the assumption that this is an island of death, where every step you take you run the risk of being bitten, stung, impaled or eaten alive by a murderous wild creature. I am here today to tell you that they are only half right.
Corey Anderson is a bowler for New Zealand’s cricket team, and also apparently a future stunt double for action movies. This is like when pitchers catch line drives hit right back at them, only with an order of magnitude more swagger. I have to agree with our lovely-accented commentator here: that was an absolute…
Australian Lleyton Hewitt had a little help during his Hopman Cup match at Perth Arena Tuesday from an unexpected source: his opponent, Jack Sock.
This story was originally published on December 8, 2015. Shortly thereafter, Craig Wright scrubbed much of his digital presence and disappeared for months—until May 2, 2016, when he publicly announced that he is the creator of Bitcoin.
It’s hot stove season up here, but thanks to the Coriolis Effect or something, in Australia the stove is ice-cold—it’s the baseball action that is hot.
7-year-old Ethan here was hit with a very untimely bout of the hiccups right before he was to sing the national anthem before an Australian Baseball League game between the Brisbane Bandits and the Adelaide Bite. Did he ask for a second to compose himself? Did young Ethan request some water?
Today, the majority of Australians take pride in being part of a multicultural, multiethnic society. But much like the United States, Australia has a brutally racist history.
Look, they won’t all be wondrous moves drenched with class, genius, and magic pixie dust. But a winner is a winner, and Japan finally got theirs near the very end of their quarterfinal matchup against Australia.
Holy shit. Holy shit! Brazil are out of the World Cup! Australia are through to the quarterfinals!
The other day we brought you the above video of Australian former National Rugby League star Ben Ross getting his goddamn arm snapped in half during a televised charity arm wrestling match. When a big and strong man who made his living dominating other big and strong men let’s out a bone-chilling scream, you know…
Ben Ross made his name in Australia’s NRL as one of rugby league’s toughest dudes. That makes watching his arm get snapped in half during an arm wrestling match Thursday night—broadcast live Down Under on Nine Network.
Yesterday, we beat Australia 3-1 in each nation’s opening match at the Women’s World Cup. (Yes, “we.” Don’t look so modest! We couldn’t have done it without you.) But from reading today’s Football Federation Australia recap of the match, you wouldn’t know we gave them a Coriolis-clockwise swirlie.
The United States Women’s National Team eventually beat Australia by a comfortable two-goal margin, but for 45 minutes Australia looked to be their better, or at least their equal. Saved by a brilliant performance from Megan Rapinoe, the USWNT will have to play much better to win the World Cup.
There’s a narrative that national teams understandably try to claim for themselves during World Cup years. That narrative goes something like this: Since our inception, we have slowly climbed the mountain, making slow, sure strides toward the summit. There are hiccups and rockslides and detours and so on, but for a…
On Thursday, News Limited announced that it would be ceasing publication of mX, a free Australian tabloid that circulated in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Following this announcement, mX decided to die historic on a fury road.
Melbourne Victory beat Sydney FC 3-0 last night to take Australia’s top soccer trophy, but all most Aussies will remember about the evening is 84-year-old FFA chairman Frank Lowy falling off the stage while trying to present the champions with their award.
This happened last week on a music television show in Australia. That fellow who just got finished being interviewed is American surfer Kolohe Andino, who was in town for the Australian Open of surfing. The guy in the studio is named Danny Clayton, and he's here to prove that Australian TV hosts keep things extremely…
The 35-year-old Tim Cahill is off playing with Australia in the Asian Cup they're currently hosting, and what better way to thrill the home fans than with a goal like this? Looks like Francesco Totti isn't the only ageless wonder out on these pitches.
