Caeleb Dressel’s Journey to Rediscovering His Passion for Swimming

More news - Breaking news Caeleb Dressel's extraordinary performance, winning seven gold medals, may paint the image of a champion without problems, but the reality of his swimming journey tells a different story.

But even those accomplishments have failed to shield him from disappointment. Dressel was consumed by perceived failures, whether it was a turn, the finish line, or the lead. Winning gold and helping Team USA dominate the medal count d...

McIlroy reflects on US Open disappointment, vows to learn and move forward

More news - Latest news Rory McIlroy is using introspection and a change of scenery to process his heartbreaking U.S. Open finish.

A familiar pattern of frustration McIlroy described feeling like his "old self" for much of the final round, the version that was seeking major championship glory. He controlled the pace early, building a two-shot lead over Bryson DeChambeau entering the 15th hole. However, a bogey on the 15th hole, followed by a missed short putt on the 16th, destroyed his momentum. McIlroy acknowledged a sense of unease creeping in as he waited...
