Yani Tseng of Taiwan hits from the rough on the 18th hole during the second round of the 2010 Ricoh Women's British Open at Royal Birkdale on July 30, 2010 in Southport, England.

June 26, 2011 - Yani Tseng wasn't satisfied with merely winning the LPGA Championship and, at 22, becoming the youngest to win four LPGA majors.

Once she made the turn with a 10-stroke lead Sunday, the best female player in the world set her sights on making a little more history. "I was like, what's a new goal for me?" Tseng said. "And that's why I told myself I wanted to set a record, to make 20 under."

Tiger Woods won his fourth when he was 24. And Tseng's idol, Annika Sorenstam, was 24 when she won the first of her 10 majors - the 1995 U.S. Women's Open. "It's very special," Tseng said. "Now I'm thinking about a grand slam."

It's one step at a time for the top-ranked Tseng, who won her second LPGA Championship and has won three of the tour's last six majors. The only major she's missing is the U.S. Women's Open title, which she'll have an opportunity to complete her career slam in two weeks at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo.  read more »

Save the Poles. North Pole, South Pole, and Mt. Everest

(quote)

Eric Larsen – New World Record Created. After over 44 days on Mount Everest, Polar explorer Eric Larsen announced on October 15, 2010 that he was able to summit Everest, making him the first-ever human to successfully reach the South Pole, North Pole and summit of Mt. Everest in a continuous 365-day period: “I have been to the ‘front lines’ of Global Warming during my journeys to the North and South Poles,” Larsen says. “We can save the poles and our planet if we act now.” On January 6, 2010, Larsen and his team successfully completed a 750-mile, 48-day ski traverse to the Geographic South Pole. Larsen and a separate team reached the Geographic North Pole on April 22nd, Earth Day, after a 51-day, 500 mile push that included snowshoeing and skiing across shifting sea ice and sometimes even swimming across open water sections of the Arctic Ocean. His purpose for the Save the Poles expedition is to connect people with our last great frozen places and the environmental issues that are impacting them. Larsen uses these expeditions to promote individual action and national legislation on climate change issues.  read more »

Great sportsman Roger Federer is mortal, but still the man.. Queen Elizabeth II visits Wimbledon for 1st time in 33 years

Wimbledon 2010: Queen Elizabeth II meets Williams sisters, Roddick, Federer, King, Navratilova

(quote)

For a guy who had just been knocked out of a major tournament, Roger Federer seemed remarkably composed. For a 16-time Grand Slam singles champion, he was almost jovial. The first question in his postmatch interview following a loss to Robin Soderling in the quarterfinals at Roland Garros concerned his level of disappointment. "Well, disappointed to a certain degree," Federer answered. "I don't think I played a bad match, so it's easier to go out this way. I thought he came up with some great tennis. It's a touch easier to digest this way."

Federer was trying to match the career record for consecutive men’s singles titles at Wimbledon, currently held by the 19th-century British player William Renshaw

Roger Federer even joked when the topic of his 23 consecutive Grand Slam semifinals appearances -- an all-time streak ended by Soderling -- came up. "It was a great run," Federer said. "Now I've got the quarterfinal streak going, I guess." When the assembled media laughed, Federer even smiled.

Top-seeded Roger Federer defeated unseeded Mario Ancic, the last man to defeat him at Wimbledon, 6-1, 7-5, 6-4. Federer has reached 17 consecutive Grand Slam semifinals since losing in the third round of the 2004 French Open  read more »

Glaciers not just ice but lifeline. Lewis Gordon Pugh to swim in half-frozen Mt Everest lake at breathtaking altitude of 5300m

Lewis Gordon Pugh is preparing for a 1km swim below summit of Mt Everest
Fearless journey to awaken conscience, to unite efforts, to rescue our planet. Lewis, with warmest heart we wish you success!

"This is not just about protecting a pristine environment," Pugh says, "it's about saving ourselves." Lewis’s Pick n Pay/SAP Everest Challenge on May 22 is all about spreading awareness of climate change and its effects. He will become the first person to attempt to swim 1km across an almost-frozen lake two-thirds of the way up Mount Everest, next to the Khumbu Glacier – at the breathtaking altitude of 5,300 metres.

Pugh is attempting a 1km swim in a glacial lake just under the summit of Mount Everest to draw attention to the melting Himalayan glaciers.

’This is not just about protecting a pristine environment, ‘ Lewis says. ‘It's about saving ourselves.’

Pugh once said “it’s a tragedy that it’s possible to swim at the North Pole.” He put himself through intense physical strain to raise awareness about climate change; he’s an ardent environmentalist who wants the world to know about the decrease in ice in the Arctic.  read more »
