Who's Oscar Pistorius? Well, lets just say he will change the Olympics forever. He's the first double amputee runner to reach the Olympics. Oscar reached his goal by making the semifinal in the mens 4x400 relay. I have never seen anyone so dedicated to running. The blade runner not only made these London Games, but won a gold medal in the 2011 Paralympics. Hailing from South Africa, he looks to compete in 2016 and go even further.
Phelps breaks medal record, Bolt is golden once again
The speedy Jamaican runner Usain Bolt proved again he is still the fastest man in the world. Winning the 100m and 200m, not to mention defeating his fellow teammate Yohan Blake, he stroke the pose to celebrate his victory. Congratulations Bolt, you are a legend.
On the other hand, Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympian ever with 22 total medals. The "Flying Fish" has so much power, strength, and confidence. At age 15, (1st Olympics for him), he was destined for glory. There's nobody stopping him. Ryan Lochte?
Who would've guessed the Cincinatti Reds would be #1. At the very start of the season, they were one of my last predicted top MLB teams. Another surpriser was my team: Boston Red Sox. So much talent in the lineup, I thought they would have a better, more successful season. Too bad, as of now they are 51-51 and #18 in Bleacher Report's Ranking List.
"The Pirates showed they are committed to making a playoff push this season by
acquiring Wandy Rodriguez from the Astros for three prospects. However, the
search continues for offensive help, although top prospect Starling Marte could
provide a spark."
Talk to Roger Federer, he'll tell you how good it feels to be considered "outdated", and actually win a championship in tennis. He for sure proved to everyone that he's definitely not losing his groove, but actually improving it. He looked as brisk as 22, moving in hyperspeed against Murray. Taking his 17th Title, he does a slam dunk on Pete Sampras' record (14) and shatters Djokovic's dream to keep the #1 Ranking for a longer time (53 weeks).
This is quite a surprise for me, because I predicted Murray (that British guy who fell 4 times in one game), to win Wimbledon. Better luck next year! Ok, ok I guess that's a little harsh, but still don't get outplayed, it's only Federer!
Well, unlike other sports websites and blogs, I really didn't want to bore you to death. This is what it could've looked like:
"LONDON- Roger Federer is the greatest tennis player of all-time. He defeated Andy Murray in a 4-set victory 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4." -Quoted From Some Boring News Source like ESPN
Yeah, yeah, yeah the facts go on. Yes, you did learn something- Roger won in 4 sets, but did you really like it?
Well folks, I hope you enjoyed my rendition of a unique, yet interesting sports report on the newly crowned Wimbledon Champion Roger Federer, and my remarks toward other players.
