Robbie Knievel, 44, jumped his motorcycle 180 feet and landed safely last
Friday at the fifth annual Evel Knievel Days in Butte, Mont. The stunt was part
of Robbie's tribute to his 67-year-old father, Evel (inset, left, with Robbie),
a Butte-born daredevil whose decadelong career included a much-hyped (and
failed) attempt to rocket over the Snake River Canyon in 1974.
Paula Creamer of the U.S. kept her head down on the follow-through of this tee
shot in the first round of the Evian Masters on July 26 in Evian, France.
Creamer finished seventh in the tournament, which Australia's Karrie Webb
(inset, right) won by one stroke over U.S. wunderkind Michelle Wie (inset,
left) and Laura Davies.
The combination of refracted light and rippling water created an eerie image as
Mexico's synchronized swim team won the gold medal in the Central American and
Caribbean Games on July 26 in Cartagena, Colombia. A day later and 5,800 miles
away, Russia's synchro duet of Anastasia Davydova and Anastassia Ermakova
(inset) took their first strokes toward gold at the European Swimming
Championships in Budapest.
