🥇Olympics: With only a month before the first Olympic events begin, some athletes are still qualifying. The Canadian Olympic Swimming Trials began over the weekend — where current 100m backstroke world champion and mermaid, Kylie Masse, broke her own Canadian record — and will continue through Wednesday

⛳️Golf: It wasn’t meant to be for Canadian and all-round good guy Mackenzie Hughes this weekend. He finished tied for 15th in the U.S. Open yesterday, 7 strokes behind winner, Spaniard Jon Rahm. Turns out, getting your ball stuck in a tree isn’t great for your final score.

🏀NBA: Canada’s basketball GOAT is out. Even though Kevin Durant did the absolute most, head coach Steve Nash and his Brooklyn Nets lost Game 7 to the Milwaukee Bucks in overtime on Saturday. The Bucks will now face the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals while the Phoenix Suns lead the LA Clippers 1-0 in the west. 

🏎F1: Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen found his wings during the second-last lap of yesterday’s French Grand Prix, when he passed reigning champ Lewis Hamilton and won his third race of the season. Next up is a double-header in Austria, where the W Series season is also set to start (more about that Saturday *wink wink*).
