We think so: Good news is needed every now and then. Especially from the world of sports. In our Good News we serve you seven news items every week that make our - and hopefully your - sports heart beat faster. Because the news is fun. Because they are trend-setting. Because they show new trends. Because they sprinkle a pinch of absurdity in a much too serious world. Or because they simply bring joy. The main thing is to be in a good mood - that's our motto in this news format. And we get right to work with the brilliant "Beau 'n' Arrow", vegan rugby players and the return from baby to the beach.


Honeymoon for Hany

A soccer honeymoon for Hany: Hany Mukthar was the first German to be voted the most valuable player in Major League Soccer in the USA. In Europe, the 27-year-old never made the big breakthrough. In the USA, however, he is outstanding. The Berlin native was involved in almost two-thirds of all goals scored by his club Nashville SC, either as scorer or provider. Meanwhile, Mukthar is also a familiar face in the USA. "When I arrived here three years ago, many knew little about soccer and I was hardly recognized. By now, it's different." His jersey is one of the best-selling.


Declaration of Love for the Slopes

Aesthetic, sporty, daredevil: After numerous award-winning freeride movies, the Innsbruck-based film production Legs of Steel now inspires and excites with the energetic short film "Beauty Full Send" and in this way celebrates the passion for all-mountain skiing. How beautiful Anne Kissling (GER), Madison Rose Ostergren (USA), Tim Fritz (GER) and Jim Ryan (USA) show how beautiful piste skiing can be by reinterpreting the slopes with creativity. with creativity. This creates anticipation for the upcoming winter season!


Brilliant "Beau 'N' Arrow"

Brilliant "Beau 'n' Arrow": With an incredible winning streak the only 18 years old Beau Greaves - nickname Beau 'n' Arrow - managed to qualify for the PDC World Darts Championship. Greaves has now won eight tournaments in a row, something only darts legends Phil Taylor and Michael van Gerwen managed before her. She won 52 matches in a row, which is a unique achievement. At the beginning of January it will be clear whether Greaves can extend the series: That's when the world-renowned final of the World Darts Championship takes place.


Rugby Goes Vegan

Their athletes live vegan lives, their sportswear is made vegan and they regularly raise money for a sustainable world with charity events: The Green Gazelles Rugby Club from London is the world's first vegan rugby club. One of the athletes' goals is also to make vegan lifestyles more popular. In any case, the rugby players also do away with the stereotype of the somewhat emaciated, muscle-poor vegan - the Green Gazelles are just as muscle-bound rugby freaks as they are known from sports


A Cricket Century Talent

Only 19 years old, Dewald Brevis is already a talent of the century, shaking up cricket like no player before him. The teenager from South Africa played a major role in setting a world record for most runs scored in the match between the Titans and Knights. "I'm just thankful for the talent God gave me and the opportunity to show it," Brevis says. His team's supporters are at least as grateful as he is.


US Gymnasts: World Champions Even without Biles

World record at the World Championships for the US gymnasts: For the sixth time in a row, the U.S. won the title. Even without their record world champion Simone Biles the US squad won. But for gymnastics fans of other nations there is hope despite the superiority. After the outstanding Biles years, this world championship was more exciting than it has been for a long time.


Return from Baby Back to the Beach

Six months ago came the baby - now she's back to beach: Olympic beach volleyball champion Laura Ludwig is celebrating a mega-fast comeback. The mother of two is back on the world tour with her new partner Louisa Lippmann thanks to a wildcard at the Elite 16 tournament. Ludwig does not yet see any chance of winning. But a good first step on the way to the goal of the 2024 Olympics - where baby Lenny will be able to run to meet his mother.
