MATTHEW Dellavedova got some vital final quarter gametime during Cleveland’s loss to the Bulls in Game 1 of their NBA semi-final showdown.

ALEXIS Sanchez scored twice as Arsenal all but secured a top four finish in the Premier League for the 18th consecutive season with a 3-1 victory at struggling Hull.

THE athletic apparel giant is renowned for landing all the big fish in the sports world but this time they got it very, very wrong.

IT WOULD be a move that would rival the glory days when Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost were fighting — and feuding — for the title.

BERNARD Tomic’s poor clay court form has continued just three weeks out from the French Open, with the Aussie knocked out of the Madrid Open by a qualifier.

Game On!

Some Aussie Rules action in the Game On area of the National Sports Museum.A new, bigger and better interactive hall and a sports cinema are now open at the National Sports Museum.

Game On is a new ‘hands, feet and bottoms-on’ area within the museum. 

It’s an extension of the original interactive gallery, but this time offering a larger range of sporting activities from cricket, football, bike racing, soccer and archery as well as a newspaper “sports-desk” interactive, multi-media screens and a comprehensive list of sporting world records.  

There is also a new netball interactive, designed to inspire young players with images of Australian netballers from the 2008 International Test Series. 

Visitors enter into the area via a portion of the actual running track from the 2006 Commonwealth Games and into a world of action - they can test their own goal kicking skills against AFL players, run out Adam Gilchrist on a virtual cricket pitch, test their hand-eye co-ordination and kick, throw, shoot, ride, race and run to their heart’s content. 

It’s the perfect place for kids (of all ages) to let off steam!
