Social media bits: From mind blowing tricks to winning returns

Every week, Tokyo 2020 will bring you the best sport posts from the social media world. This week, take a look at how athletes are keeping fit and more...

Spontaneous trick 🤸‍♂️

Which is harder: landing a hula hoop around a person or being the one to have the hula hoop go around them?

You decide.

Caught in the act 🤭

Friendship and solidarity were on show at the artistic gymnastics event in Tokyo on the weekend with Team USA taking a bit of time out from competition to take a few selfies.

Back on the pitch ⚽

American football superstar Alex Morgan has returned to the pitch for the first time in 15 months, making her debut for Tottenham in their 1-1 draw with Reading. Her daughter, Charlie, was in the stands watching on.

Circuit power 🏋️‍♀️

Argentinian Olympic medallist and judoka Paula Pareto smashes all her circuit training. Just look at those biceps!

Back-to-back 🏆🏆

After taking out the 2019 edition of the La Vuelta, Solvenian Primoz Roglic has done it again.

Back together 🏀

France's women's basketball team is back together again this week. The team are headed to a training camp to prepare for the EuroBasket Women 2021 which will take place just before the Olympic Games.

Street art 🖌️

Olympic champ and badminton player Carolina Marin poses with this beautiful mural in her native country Spain.

Mindblowing hole in one 🤯

Just one word: How?

This hole-in-one from Spanish golfer Jon Rahm during the practice round for The Masters is magic...quite literally.

Birthday girl 🎂

Annie Guglia from Canada is all smiles as she celebrates her 30th birthday. Happy bday Annie!

And she has much to celebrate about being a top ambassador for women skateboarding. Read our feature on her last October.

Table tennis crowns new champion 👑

After eight months table tennis returned with the Women's World Cup and CHEN Meng of People's Republic of China took the title.

Tennis on water? 🎾

There are clay, grass and hard courts but could water join that line up? Well, sign up Petros Tsitsipas (younger brother of Stefanos). The Greek tennis player added a bit of humour to his training session after the courts received quite the inundation of water.

Sun to snow ☀️❄️

Triathlete Taylor Spivey never quite knows what weather she will get training each week in Boulder, Colorado.! 🛹

Tommy Fynn has his eyes set on making Australia's Olympic squad for Tokyo 2020 and well...he might not be too far away. With skateboard making it's debut next year, we can't wait to see more moves like this.
