Do you know about the Flying Squirrel? Thanks to nimble wrestler Ellis Coleman, if you don't already then you will now, as his athletic moves became YouTube's top sports video of the week, August 3.

On the other side of the world, New Zealand's Nude Rugby International was in full swing.

Kevin Durant hit a 66 point hot streak during the Entertainer's Basketball Classic at Rucker Park in Harlem, New York.

In Brazil, wonderkid Neymar scored twice for Santos, with one of the goals being particularly skillful.

However, it was former World Player of the Year Ronaldinho who bagged a hat trick for rivals Flamengo, driving a comeback from 3-0 down to win by 5 goals to 4.
