Original Article Inspiration is an integral part of sports: inspiring stories, inspirational performances and inspirational athletes. Cheating, unfortunately, is another, albeit less savory, aspect of the sporting world. But how can two such polar opposites come together to inspire us? It's not possible, is it?

Records are made to broken, that's just a fact. But there is one world record on the books that stands out above all others, one record that has held firm for a hundred and thirty-one years. This record was set a few months before England lost to Australia at the Oval for the first time in 1882 – which was the beginning of "The Ashes Test Cricket Series". Surely, this world record must get the added distinction of being "the greatest world record ever".

One of the things I teach as a coach, and lecture on as legacy ambassador for the Youth Sport Trust at sport colleges around the UK, is the importance failure plays in both sport and art. It is a necessary "evil" for any athlete or artist to really grow, mature and reach their full potential. It is important to learn from your failures and mistakes. Often you learn just as much, if not more, from your failures as your successes.
