Well, if we're going to add sailing to the JOM Sports Universe, let's see some videos of sailboat races! See LUN.

If its speed that excites then you should have seen the 100 meter dash yesterday evening. Insane Bolt of lightning just demolished his own record, running a 9.58.

I couldn't go 100 meters in 9.58 seconds if I jumped off a cliff. Tyson Gay ran a 9.71 in that race, which would have been a world record at the beginning of August last year - and was still good for the American record - and he wasn't even close.

Apparently there's a lot of excitement over Yang as the first ever Asian winner of a major. "I've been waiting for this moment for years," said Tida Woods, originally of Thailand.

Most amazing sailboat races are in the Bahamas at the Family Island Regatta each April. This is from this year, my fifth time being in George Town, Exumas, for these races.

Wait a minute, Tiger Woods' mother is Siamese. That makes him Asian.

New qualifier... "Born on asian soil."
