  • Diving in and facing your fears
    Warning! If you are not good with heights, look away now. Canada's Lysanne Richard is one of the best high divers in the world. The former World Champion excels at throwing herself from extraordinary heights, and as she plummets from the tops of cliffs she can reach speeds in excess of 75 kilometres per hour... So how does she overcome fear and exactly how high is high diving? The city of Liverpool has a reputation for producing the very best in British culture and sport, from the Beatles to Anfield to Everton and beyond... but recently the city has been blighted by gun crime including the murder of several innocent people, mostly women. Now an initiative called 'Weapons Down Gloves Up is encouraging the community to come together and use boxing to reduce violence on the streets. One of those involved is UFC fighter Molly 'Meatball' McCann, a proud Liverpudlian Is it possible to combine high quality motor racing, scintillating battles around some of the most far flung corners of the earth alongside a desire to help the planet? Well that's what "Extreme E" is trying to do. The Motor sport championship sees electric SUVs competing in extreme surroundings already affected by environmental issues, highlighting the damaging effects of climate change around the world. However does it's green credentials get in the way? Not according to Extreme E Founder and CEO, Alejandro Agag. Footballer Millie Farrow first tore her anterior cruciate ligament aged just 15. It happened a year after she was diagnosed with the mental health condition Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The chances of her fulfilling her dream of becoming a professional footballer were slim, to none... but Fast forward 10 years or so and Mille has some how managed to over come several more physical injuries and also learned how to live successfully with her OCD... something she has detailed in her new book "Brave Enough Not to Quit: How I Realised My Football Dream" So, all in all quite a lot for anyone who is only 26 years old!

  • Mo Bamba: NBA star finds 'home' in Ivory Coast
    Orlando Magic’s Mo Bamba is one of the most recognisable names in basketball, and not just because rapper Sheck Wes named his viral song after him. He was born in New York City to parents who emigrated to the United States from Ivory Coast, and grandparents from Mali. He joins Sportshour's Caroline Barker to discuss the importance of keeping in touch with your roots and developing basketball in the place he says feels like "home". It's FA Cup third round weekend and Wrexham are the third-lowest ranked side left in the competition. It's been a whirlwind couple of seasons for The Red Dragons which has seen them taken over by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. Despite their newfound global fame, Wrexham have been a force to be reckoned with in the FA Cup for a long time. In 1992, they caused one of the greatest shocks in its history as they beat reigning league champions Arsenal. We hear from Mickey Thomas, who scored in that game 31 years ago. After the death of fellow runner Agnes Tirop, Kenya's half marathon world champion Mary Ngugi decided that enough was enough. She's taken it upon herself to try to create a safer environment for women and girls across the country. She tells us about setting up what is believed to be Kenya's first ever women's-only training camp. When 13-year-old Makar Marynoshenko left his home and his father in Ukraine because of the war with Russia, he also had to leave his football team Dynamo Kyiv, where he had ambitions of turning professional. After finding a new home in Omagh, Northern Ireland, he's keeping his dream alive. Plus, we pay tribute to American motorsport legend Ken Block and footballing icon Gianluca Vialli, who both passed away earlier this week. (Photo by Nic Antaya/Getty Images)
