On top: Al Wasl Club.

Al Wasl Club were winners of the volleyball competition of the third Arab Women Sports Tournament 2016 (AWST) after beating Sharjah Ladies Club (SLC) 3-0 with scores of 25-12, 25-21 and 25-19.

It was sweet revenge for Al Wasl after they had lost 3-1 to SLC in the 2014 edition.

Bahraini outfit Al Muharraq Club won silver based on points collected throughout the tournament. SLC had to be content with bronze. Lebanon’s Al Qalamoon Club came fourth, followed by Lebanese Olympic in fifth place. Palestinian side Ebdaa Club finished last.

Jordan’s Orthodox Club advanced to the final round of the basketball competition after beating Algerian Olympic club 58-53 in the semi-final, despite leading 25- 23 in the first half of the match.

SLC also made it to the final round after securing a 68-66 win against Egyptian Sporting Club in an exciting encounter. Sporting Club were ahead by 30-28 at the half-way stage but the Sharjah outfit fought back to eke out a narrow victory.

In the group archery competitions, Egypt won the gold medal, while the UAE took silver and Morocco won bronze.

In the individual archery section, it was Egypt on top once again as Nada Mamdouh took home gold, Emirati Noura Al Awadhi bagging silver and another Egyptian – Aya Mamdouh – clinching bronze.

The third Arab Women Sports Tournament was held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Wife of the His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah and Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs.

Roy Hodgson's succcessful stint at West Brom led him to the England job.

On this day, five years ago, Roy Hodgson was appointed head coach of West Brom, his last domestic job before going on to manage England.

The veteran manager turned around the fortunes of the Midlands outfit during his 18-month spell at the helm, guiding them to their highest position in the top flight, 10th, in his final season in charge.

Earlier in the campaign, the former Inter Milan and Blackburn Rovers boss had agreed to become England manager.

England reached the quarter-finals of Euro 2012 under his management but failed to progress beyond the group stages of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Here’s what else happened on this day:

1976: John Curry became the first British man to win the Olympic figure-skating title and the first Briton to win a gold medal in skating since Jeanette Altwegg in 1952 when he triumphed in Innsbruck, Austria.

1990: Mike Tyson was knocked out in the 10th round of a heavyweight contest by James ‘Buster’ Douglas in Tokyo.

1998: The International Olympic Committee announced Canadian snowboard gold medallist Ross Rebagliati had tested positive for marijuana at the Nagano Winter Olympics in Japan. Rebagliati claimed he had passively inhaled the drug at a party in the weeks leading up to the Games and was subsequently reinstated after it was discovered marijuana was not on the IOC’s list of banned drugs.

2003: Roy Keane, who had stormed out of the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup training camp nine months earlier, announced his retirement from international football. He did return to the Republic team before retiring again.

2004: John Magnier and JP McManus increased their shareholding in Manchester United to 28.89 per cent. The racehorse tycoons later sold their stake to American Malcolm Glazer.

2007: After a 5-0 Ashes defeat, England won the one-day international Commonwealth Bank Series 2-0 after clinching victory over Australia in Sydney.

2009: Lancashire confirmed Peter Moores as their new coach.

2012: Liverpool striker Luis Suarez refused to shake the hand of Manchester United full-back Patrice Evra as the pair faced each other for the first time since a racism storm.
