Congratulations to the University of Kentucky's associated athletes for earning an incredible 12 medals in the Tokyo Olympics. Former UK track star Sydney McLaughlin collected another 🥇 in the 4x400 meter relay. Three UK basketball alums won 🥇 to keep the USA's streak alive. #Kentucky #BBN 🇺🇸 With 206 countries competing, UK's total of 8 gold, 3 silver, 1 bronze would place Kentucky at position #18 on country medal count!
Great piece on Cassius Clay's early years leading toward becoming one of the most popular people in the world. Muhammad Ali's launch from Louisville brought him full circle to settle back home 50 years after his Olympics victory. Today? Floyd Mayweather claims that he is a better boxer than Muhammad Ali or Sugar Ray Robinson were in their prime fighting years. I'll stand by Ali.
During the 2014 Olympics, Team Canada beat the U.S. in both men's and women's hockey. Hey, it's their bread and butter. Sadly, the side bet was that the loser had to keep Justin Bieber. All of those other polite celebrity Canadians sent a sympathy card. Sweetest neighbors ever.
Pretty awesome views from a handheld camera and cameras connected to the skis of ex-Olympian Graham Bell as he rips down the Olympic ski course in Sochi.
