Superstar swimmer Katie Ledecky will forever be known for her dominant performances at the Rio Olympics, but the 2016 Games are far from being her first brush with fame. Cheap Adidas Shoes Online China . When she was a toddler, she met Michael Jordan -- something she casually reminded fans of on her Twitter feed three years ago.Closer to the world of swimming, Ledecky met future USA Swimming teammate Michael Phelps at an autograph signing in 2006.No one could have known then that 10 years later this duo would be breaking world records in Rio de Janeiro -- with Phelps winning his 21st gold medal and Ledecky winning her third overall on the same night. Cheap Adidas Shoes Online .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. Adidas Shoes Cheap China .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. . As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high -- proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Arms held over her head in triumph, Inbee Park showed about as much emotion as you are likely ever to see from the stoic South Korean golfer.Her par putt didnt matter, as she had a big lead walking up the 18th fairway, the gold medal all but secured.But it went in regardless, capping a remarkable week of golf for the LPGA Hall of Famer that was as much surprising as it was dominating.And perhaps it was a relief, too.Expectations are high, perhaps overwhelming, in her homeland. There was talk of the South Korean golfers sweeping the podium, a ridiculous notion, but one that nonetheless was not out of the realm of possibility.But Park did what she came to do, not just earning a medal, but the gold medal.This is definitely one of the special moments in my golfing career and whole life, said Park, 28. It feels great. Obviously representing your country, winning the gold, its so special. Its just really all Ive wanted. Im just happy.Of course. Park shot a final-round 66, pulling away early when Lydia Ko and Gerina Piller struggled. Ko, from New Zealand and the No. 1-ranked player in the world, rallied to snag the silver, making a 7-footer for birdie on the last hole to edge ahead of Chinas Shanshan Feng, who got the bronze.Australian Minjee Lee finished equal seventh after shooting a 67 on the last day, finishing at eight-under - two strokes away from bronze and three from silver.American Stacy Lewis finished 1 shot out of a medal and Piller fell back to a tie for 11th.All of them would have had a tough time overtaking Park on this day, so steady was her play, so good was her putting.And to think, a month ago she was unsure if she would even be coming to Rio. Park has battled a left thumb injury all year. It started in the offseason and lingered. She tried to play through it. She tried rest. She tried a little of both. But Park had not played in an LPGA event since the KPMG PGA in early June, where she missed the cut. Just two weeks ago, she participated in a Korean LPGA event and missed the cut there, too.I had a lot of attention coming into this week, she said. Whether it was a worry or whether it was people thinking shes going to do good, there was a little bit of confusion from me whether I can perform well this week or not, because I really havent performed well this year with the injury.Being able to overcome injury this week and being able to play good, Ive worked reaally hard for this week and hard work really paid off this week, so Im really happy. Cheap Wholesale Adidas Shoes. Park has 17 career LPGA Tour titles, including seven major championships. In 2013, she became the first player to win the first three majors in a year, her streak stopped at the Womens British Open by Lewis.The two battled for the No. 1 ranking -- now held by the 19-year-old Ko -- for the better part of two years.I dont think people understand at all; if you watch her, or even Lydia, watch both of them play golf, youre not going to be wowed, Lewis said. Youre not going to be amazed. But if you watch it over a period of time, youll be amazed, and people just maybe dont pay attention that much.Coming back from an injury and not playing and not being competitive, thats a hard thing to do. And the way she won this week was impressive.After having not shot a round in the 60s since April, Park did it three times here. She got into contention the first day and barely wavered. For a moment on Saturday, things got a bit dicey when Park bogeyed the 10th hole to see her lead shrink to 3 shots. But that was still more than it was at the start of the day, and it was only a momentary issue. She was never threatened the rest of the way.Whether the pressure will let up at home is difficult to know. Park never shows it outwardly, only speaking to it when asked. The game is nearly an obsession, especially among women, in South Korea dating to the days of Se Ri Pak, who served as team leader this week for the four South Korean women in the field.When Pak won the 1998 U.S. Womens Open and embarked on her own Hall of Fame career, she sparked a surge in golf interest that has never subsided.In South Korea, Olympic achievement tips any other athletic achievement, said Ty Votaw, former commissioner of the LPGA Tour and now an executive with the PGA Tour who also serves as vice president of the International Golf Federation. And having a gold medal winner in golf will only validate with an exclamation point what that country has achieved in golf over the past two decades, especially womens golf.Park had said before the tournament that just competing in the Olympics was an honor and that even with all shes done, a gold medal would likely be the highlight of her career.Who is going to argue?
