It’s A Sports Bonanza Out There!


As some of you may have been aware, we have had three of the World’s biggest sporting events overlap in the last week. Wimbledon, Le Tour and The World Cup. It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does it means countless late nights for the thousands of Australian sporting fans trying to catch the action live.

For a change from all thing self storage, we thought we would shift focus a little this week and chat about the amount of sporting awesomeness that has been bestowed upon us of late. Like any Melbournians, we here at Fort Knox Self Storage are avid sports fans and have been keeping watch on the most recent sporting action.

Wimbledon - Fort Knox Sports Blog

This year at Winbledon, we saw a pretty exciting development for those poutine lovers in Canada with the first Canadian ever to reach a Grand Slam singles final. Eugenie Bouchard , the 20-year-old from Montreal, made her way up the through the rounds to the final on the Saturday morning just gone, unfortunately losing to the more experienced Petra Kvitova 6-3, 6-0. Making her way to the finals generated much excitement for her countless fans, but it wasn’t such a big deal to the Bouchard, who’s had a racquet in her hand she was nine years old. Oh, and Djokovic took out the Men’s title for the second time.

The World Cup is in the final stages with and absolutely spectacular trouncing of Brazil by Germany last night – 7-1, an almost unheard of, and shocking, result for what should be a representation of two of the four best Football nations in the world. Germany were just too strong for Brazil and outplayed them at every turn, settling into a 5-0 lead at half time. With Germany’s place in the final secured, it’s no down to Holland and Argentina to battle it out for a spot against ze Germans!

Lastly, Le Tour has been off to an interesting start with the first 3 stages being run through the English countryside traversing from Leeds to London, taking out a few photographers along the way. Currently leading is Vincenzo NIBALI, with well know rider Alberto Contador only seconds off the pace and the first Australian in the pack, Richie Porte settled in position 18.

Not sure about you, but we are definitely looking forward to getting back to some regular sleeping patterns. ‘Till next time, Fort Knox Self Storage signing off.
