Hestia Dragons jins rule
Silay taekwondo tourney

Taekwondo jins from Hestia-Silay Dragons, mentored by Anthony Hilado, captured the overall championship in the Silay City 56th Charter Anniversary Taekwondo Championships at Elena Subdivision Covered Court yesterday.

The Hestia team ruled the tournament after posting winning marks in the advance category.

First runner-up was the Taekwondo Academy Bacolod of coaches Joem Mercurio and Jan Earl Enerlan, while the Talisay Taekwondo Association bhead by Jovan Rey Jereza settled for second runner-up.

Serena reigns in Paris

Serena Williams won her second French Open title on Saturday, 11 years after her first triumph, defeating title-holder Maria Sharapova 6-4, 6-4 in a brief, but high-quality final.

It was the 31-year-old American's 16th Grand Slam title win, taking her to within two of Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova who are tied for fourth on the all-time list.

And it underscored her near total domination of the women's game, having won three of the last four Grand Slam titles -- at Wimbledon, the US and French Opens -- and reaching the quarter-finals at the Australian Open.

Heat confident
of bouncing back

The Miami Heat will have playoff history on their side as they seek to rebound from a opening-game loss to the San Antonio Spurs in today’s game two of the NBA Finals.

Despite leading for much of the game and taking a three-point advantage into the fourth quarter, the Heat lost 92-88 to the Spurs on Friday (Phil. time) in the opener of the best-of-seven championship series.

The last time Miami dropped game one before coming back to win the series was last month against the Chicago Bulls in the second round of the playoffs.
