Each weekend we take a look back on the sporting highs from across Ireland and around the world through the medium of numbers.

This weekend we look at Awards Magic, Giants Killing the Giant Killers, Flawed Genius on the Golf Course, Speedy Swimming and the Rise of Women’s Sport on TV…

36

The AIB Club Camogie Championship decider between Oulart the Ballagh and Sarsfields was the 36th Live match in Women’s sport to be broadcast on RTÉ this year. Without the rights to the Ladies Football Championship that is an impressive catalogue and a benchmark from which to move forwards towards closer parity in years to come.

After a season of giant-killing, the Laois Club hurling champions of Clough Ballacolla ran into the biggest giant of them all, Ballyhale Shamrocks, in the AIB Leinster Club Hurling Championship. The result was the Kilkenny Kingpins securing their 11th title and an All Ireland semi-final to look forward to in the new year.

The number of English Premier League games postponed due to Covid related issues. The Premier League is holding a summit today to discuss how the current surge of cases might impact on the sport over the coming weeks.

The number of birdies in a row in the final round of the PNC Championship that Tiger Woods and his son Charlie scored in a 15 under round. There must be something in the flawed golf genius genes as that was only enough for them to come second behind John Daly and his son.

The new Irish record set by the Men’s 4×200 metre relay squad at the Swimming World Championships in Abu Dhabi.
