This is all about Migaloo, the white whale, from earlier. “This is a celebration of our shared Home and our essential connectivity to everyone and every place, as symbolized by the white whale, Migaloo. Migaloo serves to remind us that, whoever we are and wherever we are, we live in the same place; we share the same fantastic planet; we are all connected. Despite our apparent differences, we are all simply a part of the human race and our island is our shared home.”

Into the arena floats a massive animatronic whale. It’s late, I’m not sold, to be honest. It’s all gone a bit Spinal Tap.More from England’s Brownlee brothers, who as we mentioned have failed to win a middle in the men’s triathlon.Two-time Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee fell away at the start of the running leg and ended up finishing 10th. He’s just been interviewed post-race and blamed the result on a lack of fitness. He said he “hadn’t done enough to be fit enough on the run”.

I knew I would’ve struggled on the run,” he said after the race. “I wanted to pull that gap out as much as possible to give (his brother) Jonny the best chance and look out for him.“I’m just really happy I got through the race, that’s fine. I’m happy with that.“I knew it was going to be tough when you haven’t actually run that fast for more than a minute or two at a time and, when you’ve got to do it for 15, it’s not going to go very well for you is it“I would have preferred my calf to be good two months ago, if it was and I was able to train in that time, I reckon I would have been able to win that race.”

The women’s 4000m team pursuit qualifiers have just wrapped up and Australia have finished fastest. The Aussie women took out silver at last year’s world championships and will be favourites to take gold ahead of New Zealand in the gold medal race tonight.There were plenty of fist-pumps coming from the NZ women after the just beat out the Canadians but they’ll be up against it after finishing a good five seconds slower than the Australians.The men’s qualifiers in the same event are just about to kick-off, and it should be a cracker. Australia’s men won the last two world titles but finished second behind England at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

There are a total of six gold medals on offer at the Anna Meares Velodrome in Brisbane tonight.Quite a shock out of the men’s triathlon a little earlier, where the Brownlee brothers crashed out without winning a medal.Two-time Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee fell out of contention at the start of the run, eventually coming 10th, while Jonny finished seventh in one of the brothers’ worst days.They had hoped to repeat the one-two finish from Glasgow 2014. Alistair, 29, exited the second transition in the lead but faded to come home one minute six seconds behind the eventual winner, South Africa’s Henri Schoeman. Australian Jake Birtwhistle took out silver while Scot Marc Austin took out the bronze.

He said afterwards that his training in the lead up to the event had been “perfect”. “My race today was pretty great, I knew that I really needed to work hard but also save my energy,” he said. “Everything went according to plan and I knew that I couldn’t have given anything else. I finished in a heap.“It’s pretty amazing to come away with third after training for so long. I’ve been pretty disappointed lately of my performances as I just haven’t been delivering the standard I know I’m capable of.”The Brownlees have a second chance to win a medal when they compete in the mixed team relay later in the week.

The Australians, Jessica Gallacher and Madison Janssen, went first in the qualifying round and finished in 10.954, a new world record. Then, in one of those ‘anything you can do’ type moments, England’s Sophie Thornhill and Helen Scott came through and blew them out of the water with 10.609.For the uninitiated, the B&VI is a para event for cyclists with a visual impairment, using a tandem bicycle with a cyclist on the front as a pilot. After the race, Gallacher said the sport involved a huge amount of trust“If you cant trust the person steering the bike you’re not going to get the best out of the bike and each other, [but we have a] wonderful relationship,” she said. It should make for a cracking final later on tonight.

In case the 2018 Masters need an extra dose of adrenaline—for the sake of posterity, it did notTiger Woods and Phil Mickelson traversed Augusta National’s inward nine together on Tuesday morning.Patrons gravitated to the group, which included Fred Couples and Thomas Pieters, the crowd 12 deep at times. Even by Masters standards, it was a spirited scene, one Woods admitted was something he’s never experienced. They put on a show, highlighted by eagles from Woods on the 13th and 15th, the two 40-somethings waxing their competition. Perhaps a preview for what’s to come.

“Come Sunday, they may be paired together [again],” said Couples. “They’re playing extremely well and they love the course, and they’re going to do very, very well.”It was their first joint practice round in 45 combined Masters. Further cementing that, even in the tournament’s incomparable setting, this year is setting up to be unlike any other.

The Masters released the Thursday and Friday pairings on Tuesday, and they did not disappoint. Leading the charge is Woods, who will tee it up with Marc Leishman and Tommy Fleetwood at 10:42 a.m. on Thursday. Other notable groups include Sergio Garcia, Justin Thomas, and Doc Redman; Jordan Spieth, Alex Noren and Louis Oosthuizen; Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson and Rafa Cabrera Bello. You can find all of the pairings here.

The Champions Dinner was held Tuesday night, a meeting of one of the most exclusive fraternities in golf. Reigning winner Sergio Garcia hosted, serving a Spanish-themed menu, while mixing in an International-flavored salad, and for a good reason.”We want to pay a little tribute to all the winners and all the countries that have won the Masters, so we want to add to that salad. We want to add at least one or two ingredients from every country that has won the Masters, so it’s going to be a little more special and it’s our way of saying thanks to all the winners,” Garcia said.

“Then as a main course we’re going to have a beautiful – one of my favorite dishes in Spain…arroz caldoso de bogavante. It’s going to be a rice dish, not a paella, but it’s going to be a lobster rice dish. It’s kind of like a soup kind of meal. Very delicious, very tasty. So I hope that everyone enjoys it. I definitely will.”It’s the Champions Dinner; how could you not enjoy it? That’s like trying to frown at the beach.Tuesday featured a murderer’s row of press interviews, from Tiger to Rory to Phil to Justin to Jordan. While there were gems scattered throughout the day, the highlight belongs to Garcia, who relayed his nightmare of almost ruining the green jacket within 24 hours of slipping it on.

“If you bear with me, we won the Masters, obviously we got to New York for all the morning shows and everything, which was a really cool experience,” Garcia said. “And we were there, so I’ve had the jacket for a day and a half, and we’re doing all the different shows and the stock exchange and Bloomberg and everywhere. And all of a sudden we’re kind of wrapping up the first day on Monday, and I’m about to do an interview, and I kind of—I’ve been taking pictures with different people and guys behind stage and stuff like that, and I kind of look at my right arm and there’s two big grease stains on it. And I’m thinking, My God, I’ve had the jacket for a day and a half and I already have two massive stains on it. What am I going to do?”

According to Sergio, one of the stage managers was covered in grease, causing said stains. Luckily for the 38-year-old, dry cleaners do exist, and the jacket returned in pristine condition. Still, if you have any soul to speak of, that tale has to make you cringe something fierce.As I write this on Wednesday morning at 6 a.m., it is coming down in buckets at Augusta National. However, while the forecast calls for scattered showers in the morning, it appears the venerable Par 3 Contest, which begins at noon, should be in the clear. (And thank the golf gods for that, as last year’s contest was rained out).

The event has transformed into Family Day at the Masters, with many players putting their wives, children or friends on the bags. It’s a nice change a pace, the competitors getting a chance to let down their guard and enjoy the scenery before the madness begins on Thursday. It’s also bestows a chance for the patrons to see past champions, as many no longer play official practice rounds.Also, little known fact that you’ve probably never heard before, ever: No player has won the Par 3 Contest and Masters in the same year. How’s about that.
