Carmel had the high school boys and girls swimming teams of the decade. Next goal: Putting the first Carmel swimmer on a U.S. Olympic team.

“There’s plenty of opportunity there,” coach Chris Plumb said. “We probably have more top-eight and top-16 seeds than we’ve ever had before. And that’s all you can do. You just keep more people up there.”

“Larry Bird 2.0”: Former NBA Star Lauds Luka Doncic and His Pure Talent in the Modern Game

The 2019/20 NBA season saw the rise of a phenomenon in Luka Doncic. The 21-year-old had a spectacular rookie season last year, but he competed in the playoffs for the first time this season and was nothing short of brilliant. Luka’s notable performances in his first two years with the Dallas Mavericks are already earning him comparisons with greats like Larry Bird and Pete Maravich! 

The Mavs have been incredibly boosted by the signing of Luka Doncic. Fitting into the NBA proved to be a seamless transition as Luka’s already proved his talents in Europe. He won the EuroLeague title and the MVP award in 2018. 

His flair for passing, supported by a dominant shooting hand, makes him unguardable on the court. Luka has earned plenty of reverence from his head coach Rick Carlisle, who expects him to come back stronger next season just like how the legends did it.

Georgia football games this season will be missing a well-known attraction.

Uga, the iconic live bulldog mascot, won’t be present due to COVID-19 protocols.

“It’s my understanding the SEC and NCAA consider the field a ‘bubble,’ and the only people allowed in the bubble are essential,” said Charles Seiler, the white English bulldogs’ handler and owner. “As of now, no dog on the field.”

Uga X, whose name is Que, assumed the mascot role on Nov. 21, 2015 after three months of an audition of sorts. There is no plan to have the dog in Athens elsewhere in the stadium as of now.

“The whole idea is to have not people to congregate,” Seiler said, “and if you know anything about the

Sports: the importance of motivation and clothes

It is not just enough to dress well for the office or school; you should put that same energy in clothing to the gym or for sports. Why? It is because what you wear to these places affects your performance. Wearing worn-out shoes, faded or torn clothes, tight and too fitted clothes will reduce the confidence needed to excel. It can lead to injury, and or demotivate you to continue in the sporting enterprise. You can get the right gear from sports brands dedicated to improving your performance in the sporting enterprise.

The feeling of winning or achieving set goals, the sense of competing, or a combination of both are reasons many are motivated to participate in sports. When a person is not motivated, it is not possible to get the best from that person. Motivation is, therefore, an essential aspect of participating in sports.
