Caeleb Dressel’s Journey to Rediscovering His Passion for Swimming

Related media - 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. Despite his unparalleled success, Dressel has had to contend with the intense pressures of the sport. Widely regarded as one of the world’s best swimmers, Dressel holds the world record in the men’s 100-meter butterfly, a title he took from Michael Phelps in 2019 and then bettered at the Tokyo Olympics, where he won five gold medals. 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 cou...

Fast forward to 2024, and a series of events catapulted him into the spotlight. A series of major victories, including a second Masters victory, cemented his dominance. But it was a bizarre arrest in Louisville that truly propelled him into the pop culture stratosphere. Fans r...

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

Related media - Recent news Rory McIlroy is using introspection and a change of scenery to process his heartbreaking U.S. Open finish. After missing putts on the final holes at Pinehurst, McIlroy took solitary walks through the busy streets of New York City. The walks served as a way to mentally unplug and gain perspective on the challenging tournament. 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 wa...

Apple Vision Pro review: First-gen headset falls short

More news - News 24 hours Seventeen years ago, Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone, a revolutionary device that combined an iPod, a telephone, and an Internet browser in one. At $500, it was expensive, but its innovation justified the cost, despite some initial flaws. Fast forward to today, and my experience with Apple’s new $3,500 Vision Pro headset has been less than stellar. This ski-goggle-style virtual reality headset aims to merge the physical and digital worlds. Apple bills it as a “space computer” designed for work, entertainment, and play. Without an advance review unit from Apple, I purchased the Vision Pro myself. With essential add-ons like a $200 case, $180 AirPods, and $150 prescription lens inserts, the cost quickly adds up. After using it for five days, I’m still not sol...
