Champions Everywhere! The Sports Agenda

The World

All great champions are resilient, and, this weekend, old sports champions return to the limelight. Slugger Manny Ramirez, who helped bring two World Series rings to Boston, returns to the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight from a 50-game suspension for violating baseball’s drug policy. Seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong returns to France for this year’s Tour de France.

And the champions of the tennis world are shining bright at Wimbledon. Venus and Serena Williams meet in the finals at Wimbledon again. Roger Federer makes his push for the Wimbledon men’s final, while American Andy Roddick attempts a comeback. For all of this and more, we are joined by The Takeaway’s sports contributor Ibrahim Abdul-Matin.
