Gold: Lewis Hamilton
(England, Auto Racing)
Hamilton (Mercedes-Benz) keeps on adding to his Formula 1 records. He won his fifth consecutive Spanish Grand Prix and became the second driver in F1 history to win five consecutive races at the same Grand Prix. Only Ayrton Senna (BRA) had done it (Monaco, 1989-93). His 98th win is also an F1 record and he also became the first driver to reach 100 pole positions. He passed Max Verstappen (NED, Red Bull) for the lead and took off. Valtteri Bottas (FIN, Mercedes-Benz) was third.
Silver: Roohallah Rostami
(Iran, Para Powerlifting)
Rostami won the gold medal in the -80 kg. category for men at the Para Powerlifting World Cup in Thailand. His lift of 241 kg. was a World Record for the division and also better than the World Record for the -85 kg. division. He is now the World Record holder in the -72 and -80 kg. categories.
Bronze: Saúl Álvarez
Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez (MEX) is simply the best boxer in the world. He beat Billy Joe Saunders (ENG) by Retirement after 8 Rounds, when the Mexican broke Saunders’ cheekbone with a counter. He now has the WBA, WBC, WBO and The Ring Super Middleweight Titles and would ideally fight Caleb Plant (USA), IBF Champion, to fully unify the division for the first time.
