BBC Sport's cycling commentator Simon Brotherton chose Chris Froome's victory in the Tour De France as his moment of 2013.

Darren Campbell picks Christine Ohuruogu's 400m win at the World Athletics Championships in Moscow, just ahead of Mo Farah's double gold in the 5,000m and 10,000m, as she won on a photo finish and also broke Kathy Cook's long-standing British record in the process. "She came in with a game plan and stuck to it."
