Something From The Weekend: Marta Dominguez; Jordan Ibe; Lewis Hamilton; Serita Shone; Second-half goals

The Good, The Bad and The Odd

The Good: Marta Dominguez

The world steeplechase champion won her first race back in the 10km in Madrid yesterday, having been away from the sport for a year in which she was banned for doping in December, gave birth in May, and then cleared of the aforementioned charge in July.

That's quite a 12 months, so what's next for Spain's top sportswoman? She is set to enter a totally different kind of race – running for a seat in the Spanish senate next month. And then? The Olympics. It looks like the year ahead will be just as hectic as the past one, although she will no doubt hope for a smoother ride.

The Bad: Jordan Ibe

The 15-year-old, who had just scored his first professional goal to equalise for Wycombe in their 2-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday, ran to celebrate with his proud parents in the stand. That was until referee Chris Sarginson saw fit to book the ecstatic youngster. What an old curmudgeon.

Lewis Hamilton

He may have been wearing a Bob Marley-themed helmet but he is still a long way from earning redemption in the eyes of Felipe Massa.

The Odd: Serita Shone

British and Dutch bobsleighers have clubbed together to buy an iPad for the injured Briton, who is holed up in hospital in Germany after an accident in training last week. Well, an Apple is a better gift than grapes.

Second-half goals

Of the 35 Premier League goals scored this weekend, 23 were scored in the second half. Must be something in those orange slices...
