Top 5 Summer Sports Moments of 2014

Sep 22, 2014

This past weekend was the official end of summer, and what a summer it was for sports! So many incredible moments and heartwarming stories over the past three months we thought we would take a look at the Top 5 Summer Sports Moments for 2014.

5. Serena Wins Third Straight U.S. Open

Serena Williams silenced any doubts that she was no longer the queen of tennis by smashing her way to a third straight U.S. Open title in Flushing Meadows, New York. The world number one dominated Caroline Wozniacki in the final 6-3, 6-3 to capture her 18th Grand Slam title.

4. Mo'Ne Davis

The pitcher from Philly took the Little League World Series by storm with her fearless pitching and funny post-game interviews. Mo'Ne was not only cool under pressure in one of the biggest sporting events of the summer, she was an inspiration for all the little girls out there who know they can play just as well as the boys out there. Mo'Ne became the first female pitcher to earn a win at the LLWS when she picked up the W for the Taney Dragons on August 14.

3. USA Strikes Gold at FIBA World Cup of Basketball

The FIBA World Cup of Basketball took place in Spain and even though the United States was missing some superstars, the boys in blue still took home the Gold Medal with a Finals victory over the scrappy Serbians. Anthony Davis led the way on the defensive end along with Kenneth Fareid (named to All-Tournament Team) while Kyrie Irving was named Tournament MVP. USA! USA! USA!

2. LeBron Returns to Cleveland

Arguably the most talked about sports moment all summer was an off season signing of LeBron James by the Cleveland Cavaliers, who convinced the best player in basketball to return home to Ohio and help the Cavs win a title. Since signing LeBron the Cavs have shipped the last two #1 picks in the NBA draft to Minnesota and received Kevin Love in return, solidifying their status as contenders for the title in 2015.

Of course we can! It's true that we're a little less strong physically, but we can. "Can't" means just that, we can't. And that's wrong. It's true we have to deal with all that physical pain (I can whine about it for agesss) and mental pain too. And that some of us cry easily. But that's because we feel pain! So although we are less strong physically as I said earlier, girls can also think up ways to surprise someone in a fight. And that's a good thing to do to someone who laughs at a girl and says they cant fight.

Cheer-leading is a sport - most people think that it is not - but it is Yes it looks like they are just cheering on the football players - but their routines and being able to hold up girls over their head takes strength, and they work really hard to make everything look good.

I liked cheering for the underdog, so I've always cheered for the Cavs. I'd like to see how this year's line-up goes, though our past best point guard left for the Celtics.  :/
