Rugby My awesome grandpa says this plugin is interesting!

You can’t have failed to notice a weekend of sporting brilliance – from a stunning sub two-hour marathon to hosts Japan lighting up the Rugby World Cup.

But there were three phenomenal sportswomen right at the heart of the action as well.

With a combined age of just 62, Simone Biles, Brigid Kosgei and Coco Gauff added their names to the history books.

Barack Obama said athlete Kosgei had shown a “remarkable example of humanity’s ability to endure and keep raising the bar”.

Three-time Olympic gold medallist Alexandra Raisman said she was “in awe” of gymnast Biles, while tennis legend Billie Jean King congratulated both tennis player Gauff and Biles on Twitter.
