Gay Cruises Past Bolt to Win Stockholm's 100m

At Friday's IAAF Samsung Diamond League in Stockholm, it was a highly anticipated men's 100-meter between American sprinter Tyson Gay and World Record Holder Usain Bolt, of Jamaica.

Gay who cruised to a winning time of 9.84 while Bolt finished in 9.97, proved that Bolt is beatable.

Just as any athlete can be beaten, but the Jamaican sprinter hasn't been beaten at the 100-meters in nearly two years.

This race proves that Gay is trying to put in a psychological plug early before next year's season of championship track and field meets. However, Bolt's psyche might not be a limber as Gay thinks.

The world record holder warned that Gay is not going to beat him next season and acknowledged that he is beatable- but he refuses to lose to American sprinter Tyson Gay.

It's going to be an exciting track and field year to see these two world-class sprinters battle it out.

USA Ties Game Against England in World Cup

The USA Men's Soccer team proved to be performing at their best as they gave England a run for their money to tie the game with a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

Soccer fans across the nation were up on their toes awaiting the defining moments to see whether or not the U.S. men's soccer team would make it past the first round.

It was a bitter sweet moment in the World Cup opener for U.S. forward Clint Dempsey in the 40th minute of the game. Dempsey sneaks a goal passed England's goalkeeper Robert Green, whose fumble allowed Dempsey's shot to pass for goal to tie the game.

It's going to be exciting to see if the U.S. team can hold on and possibly bring the FIFA World Cup back to the states.
