Daily routine: Five things to do - 9 May

Need some inspiration or feeling nostalgic about iconic sports moments? Here are our recommendations this Saturday.

By Olympic Channel ·

It's the weekend, for today is Saturday.

The days may all be blurring into one but you'll have to take our word for it.

As always, we're here with five things for you to do today, to keep yourself occupied as you #StayStrong, #StayHealthy, and #StayActive from your own home.

1) Re-live the Brownlee brothers' Mexico moment

Remember when double Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee gave up a chance to win the World Triathlon Series Grand Final race in Cozumel, Mexico in 2016?

Brownlee, in second, came round the final bend to see his younger brother Jonny stumbling towards the finish line suffering from dehydration and heat injury.

He chose to help his sibling across the line. The pair were overtaken by Henri Schoeman in the process.

Tonight, at 6 pm British Summer Time, the older Brownlee will re-live that moment on the World Triathlon international federation's TriathlonLIVE service.

"It’s certainly a race I will never forget. On one hand I’d love to forget it, but on the other I’m proud in the part I played in one of the sport's most iconic moments," he said.

On a similar note, you can now use the #ReliveTheOlympics hashtag on Twitter for a special Olympic flame emoji!

And while you're doing that, why not relive the action from the USA 'Dream Team' basketball games at Barcelona 1992, in our special series, available for free right here.

2) Train in isolation

Why not take some inspiration from athletes training in isolation?

Stuff.co.nz has put together an in-depth report on eight athletes who have had to adapt their Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games preparations for training alone, including boxer David Nyika, who qualified at the Asia/Oceania tournament in Amman, Jordan, in February.

"I’ve actually been really enjoying the change of pace," Nyika told Stuff. "I think it is just the quality of time. We’ve been able to slow things right down as opposed to stressing about daily life."

3) Watch this surfing special

The International Surfing Association held an hour-long discussion on the "State of Olympic Surfing" and how it has been affected by the postponement of Tokyo 2020 yesterday.

Among the speakers were ISA President Fernando Aguerre, top World Surf League athletes Italo Ferreira, Tatiana Weston-Webb, and Caroline Marks, and other guests.

Why not watch the special talk below?

4) Read Antonio Díaz's story

Another of the sports making an Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020 is karate, so karate exponents around the world reacted to the Games postponement with perhaps a little bit more disappointment.

However, 39-year-old double world champion Antonio Díaz of Venezuela took the news in his stride.

The World Games and Pan American Games gold medallist has an eight-month old son, named after him, who is keeping him busy.

You can read the full feature with Díaz on olympic.org.

5) Learn about young hotshot Simon Andreassen

Have you heard of Simon Andreassen? No? Well, here's your perfect chance to find out about the mountain bike and cyclo-cross world junior champion.

The Dane, who made his Olympic debut at Rio 2016 as a fresh-faced 18-year-old, spoke exclusively to the Olympic Channel from his home in Denmark.

He reveals all about his career, personality, and tattoos, including the number 13 on his stomach.

"I chose it because it’s considered an unlucky number, but for me is my lucky number," he says.
