Carl Lewis of the USA raises his arms aloft as he crosses the line to win the 100 metres final from #901 Sam Graddy of the USA, # 126 Ben Johnson of Canada and #390 Donovan Reid of Great Britain during the 1984 Olympic Games at the Colliseum Stadium on August 4, 1984 in Los Angeles.
On this day in 1941, Bobby Jones' team, the "Jones' Challengers," defeated Walter Hagen's U.S. Ryder Cup team during a two-day "All Star Match" which took the place of the Ryder Cup, since the Great Britain team was unable to attend due to World War II. Bobby Jones returned after 10 years of retirement to compete with a field of elites such as Ben Hogan, Gene Sarazen, Sam Snead and Byron Nelson. Funds raised were donated to the USO and Red Cross to support the war efforts. #TBT #GolfHistory

Here's a shot of the entire Team SCA on their boat. These women are incredible. I would not be able to do what they do. Can you imagine on a sailboat out in the middle of the ocean? It's insane and so commendable.
