This is a video of Team Canada's star John Tavares scoring an incredible puck-juggling goal during the World Juniors tournament. YahooSports writer Greg Wyshynski has described it as, "one of the highlight goals of the season, on any level."

Recently, Anderson Cooper challenged Michael Phelps to a race with a few conditions to try and even out the playing field. Phelps had to swim underwater, with no breathing, and could only use his legs. Cooper also got to dive in while Phelps could only push off the wall.
Last week, brothers Davis and Hanks Massey, aged 9 and 11, respectively, pulled off a feat that borders on the unimaginable for golfers of all ages: They both hit holes-in-one in succession at the Par-3 third at TPC Sawgrass.
The odds of two players in the same group making a hole-in-one have been estimated at 17 million-to-1 by Francis Scheid, a retired Boston University math professor who was commissioned by Golf Digest to calculate hole-in-one odds under various scenarios.
Derek Redmond is a retired English athlete who, as a 400 metres and 4 x 400 metres runner, won gold medals at the European, Commonwealth, and World Championships.
However, he might best be known for the disappointment he suffered at the 1992 Summer Olympics in the 400m race.
He posted the fastest time of the first round, and won his quarter-final. In the semi-final, Redmond started well, but 175m from the finish, his hamstring tore. Redmond immediately fell to the ground, but soon began to hobble along the track. He was then joined on the track by his father, Jim Redmond, who had supported Derek for his whole career. Shortly before the line, Jim let go of his son, and he completed the race, with a standing ovation from the crowd of 65,000.
