top   Sports and Newton are linked. Garrison's shot was aimed at the net, but two tips resulted in the winning goal. Speed Skater Christine Nesbitt wins Olympic Gold. Steve Nash works magic with basketball passes. Canada's Joannie Rochette wins Olympic Bronze with her moves. Soccer players show amazing control over the momentum of the ball. Tiger Wood's uses all of his skills for this shot. Finally, 10 great curling shots.
