Newsround's Sport Review of 2013
19 December 2013
Last updated at 06:52
Newsround take a look back at some of the British sporting success stories of 2013.
Where better to start than a double, double winning gold medallist. The Mobot was out again as Mo Farah followed up his Olympic success with two gold's at the World Athletics Championships in Moscow.
But he wasn't the only Brit making the headlines on the track... Christine Ohuruogu snatched the gold by the smallest of margins in the 400m.
Wigan is probably better known for its pies than its footballing success - but 2013 was their year as they beat Manchester City in the FA Cup final, winning the club's first major trophy in 81 years.
Not too far down the road in Manchester it was an emotional goodbye to one of the most successful managers in history. After 26 years, Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement to the despair of United fans and joy of their rivals.
On the international stage Germany won the women's Euros for the SIXTH time in a row.
And the England men's side qualified for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
In 2012 Andy Murray left Centre Court at Wimbledon in tears, but this year, it was smiles all round as he became the first men's British Wimbledon champion in 77 years to win the title.
Golfer Justin Rose was busy making history on grass too, becoming the first Englishman in 43 years to win the US Open.
Perhaps it's best not to talk about the current series Down Under, but back in August the England cricket team were celebrating when England beat Australia 3-0.
And to rub salt in the Aussie's wounds the British and Irish Lions ended a 16-year wait for a series win when they thrashed the Wallabies in a series decider.
