Scottie Scheffler has claimed victory at the 2022 golf Masters at Augusta National, finishing ahead of Ireland’s Rory Mcllroy

Scheffler claimed his first major title, with his final round one-under-par. He finished 10-under for the tournament and five shots ahead of second-placed McIlroy.

Meanwhile, at Scheffler’s home club in Dallas, Texas, nearly every seat was filled as they celebrated the victory.

Scheffler was the tournament’s leader for almost three days, taking home the famous green jacket and 2.7 million dollars in prize money.

Almost lost for words, the world champion says he can’t thank his family enough, and to have the honour of winning the tournament and to have his family there was “incredible.”

After blowing the field away with his stellar performance at the 86th Masters, Scheffler embraced his wife Meredith Scudder.

U.S. Swimming coach, Andrea Fuentes, has saved the life of an American Swimmer, Anita Alvarez, at the FINA World Championships

Fuentes dived into the pool to rescue unconscious Alvarez from the bottom after her Olympic qualifying event.

In a nightmare moment, the 25-year-old didn’t return for breath after her synchronised swimming event and instead began to sink.

In a split-moment decision, Coach Fuentes jumped into the pool to rescue her, after the lifeguards failed to act.

When a swimmer finishes their routine, the first thing they want to do is breathe and so I saw that instead of going up, she was going down and I told myself, ‘Something is going on’ … So I went in as fast as I could.”

Andrea Fuentes

The young Olympic medalist was unconscious and not breathing but quickly received medical attention on the edge of the pool.

She was taken to hospital and is now reportedly in ‘good health’.

Eight medical personnel will stand trial for their alleged negligence in the death of football legend Diego Maradona

The 60-year-old was found dead in a rented home in Buenos Aires two years ago, after recently being discharged from hospital.

Prosecutors say there were “omissions” by the star’s caregivers, who allegedly abandoned him during his hospital stay.

Around 20 medical experts found Maradona’s treatment was rife with “deficiencies and irregularities”, in a hearing convened by Argentina’s public prosecutor last year.

A neurosurgeon and family doctor, psychiatrist and psychologist are among those who are facing charges.

They risk sentences ranging from eight to 25 years in prison but are denying any responsibility in the Argentinian player’s death.

Diego Maradona played in four FIFA World Cups for Argentina, and then went on to coach the national team during their 2010 campaign in South Africa.

In May, his famous ‘Hand of God’ jersey sold for $9.3 million.

Sporting stars lose millions amid crypto crash

Many stars and celebrities are getting caught up in the crypto market crash right now, with big names losing millions

Most recently, star Quarterback Trevor Lawrence has had $22 million wiped off his cryptocurrency portfolio.

The Jacksonville Jaguars athlete pushed his entire signing bonus into the sector when he decided to accept his wage in digital currency.

The 22-year-old partnered with a crypto tracking app, Blockfolio.

He organised for his entire wage package of $34 million to be delivered in cryptocurrency.

However, Bitcoin has currently lost more than 70 percent of its value, which has sent Lawrence’s paycheck nosediving.

His original pay packet is now worth just $12 million, leaving the Quarterback $22 million out of pocket.

Investors are selling off riskier assets because central banks are raising interest rates to combat quickening inflation.

The overall market value of crypto assets has fallen from $3 trillion to below $1 trillion.

This expensive nightmare for Lawrence follows a string of other top athletes like NFL star Odell Beckham and NBA player Andre Iguodala also losing millions.
