Australian Tyler Wright knew before a wave was surfed this year that she was going to be world champion.Before the 22-year-old won four events, before she reached seven of a possible nine semi-finals, and well before she officially clinched the title on the beach at Hossegor in France on Wednesday.I already knew, Wright told AAP.I wouldnt have gone into this year saying that I was going after a world title and did everything that I did not knowing that I would do it.For me it was just I knew what I could do and I just had to do it pretty much.This year wasnt the first time Wright had found herself in the title hunt though.A highly-heralded junior world champion, she finished second in the 2013 and 2014 title races after being knocked out of contention in the season-ending event of both years.But this time it was different.Ive always said I didnt want it, she said.And it was true because I knew I wasnt ready to win one yet. As hard as it is to say.Wright cant put her finger on the moment her mindset changed.However she said it was part of a journey at the end of last season, around the same time her close uncle died and her brother, Owen, suffered a serious brain injury while practising ahead of his own title fight in Hawaii last year.She carried their spirit with her throughout the entire season, wearing Owens number in her final at the Landes break.I had such a hectic personal life that when it came to being at the beach, being at work, doing my job, it was very easy, she said.All I had to do was put myself in a position where I could catch a wave. That was pretty much it. And thats not very hard.She took on new coaches, spoke to a number of mentors on where she wanted her career to get and directed herself towards her maiden title, winning 33 of her 42 heats in all events along the way.I decided in my head and then I just did it, she said.Once that decision was made it became really easy.With one event still to surf in Maui, Wrights championship was confirmed when after she beat Tatiana Watson-Webb in her semi-final, chief-rival Courtney Conlogue of the USA was beaten by three-time world champ Carissa Moore in the other eliminator.Wright went on to lose the final to Moore, but had already become Australias 20th world surfing champion, and the first since Steph Gilmore in 2014.I get to join the ranks of the people who have most inspired me in this sport. Steph, Carissa, Layne (Beachley), Lisa (Andersen) and the list goes on.And even on the mens side as well, are you kidding me?Im pretty psyched on that. Wholesale Stitched NFL Jerseys . Michell Burger, a woman who lives on an estate next to Pistorius gated community, said she and her husband were awoken by the screams in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, when Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp by shooting four times through a door in his bathroom.

LeBron James began promoting Kyrie Irving as a future Most Valuable Player candidate last season. To hear James talk now, the future might be arriving sooner than expected. Asked if Irving is a viable MVP candidate this season when the race appears to be wide open, James responded, Why not?I think the skys the limit for the kid, hes only (24) years old, James said. He hasnt even gotten to his prime yet.As the Cavaliers prepare to host the Houston Rockets on Tuesday, its far too early to draw any conclusions. Irving, however, appears poised to lead the Cavs in scoring this season after he led them throughout most of the postseason until James overtook him with his magnificent close to the Finals.Why is that significant? James has led his team in scoring every year since entering the league. James was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday despite Irving leading the Cavs in scoring through the first three games.He doesnt have any weaknesses, especially offensively, James said of Irving. Hes been great so far. If guys take away his driving lanes, hes able to create off the dribble, make pull-up jumpers. He can shoot the 3-ball too, so, he doesnt have any weaknesses offensively so it doesnt matter.Its a good time to be a Cleveland sports fan. While the Cavaliers are the defending champions with two MVP candidates this season in James and Irving, the NBA agreed to move up the start of Tuesdays game to 6 p.m. EDT to minimize the conflict with the Cleveland Indians hosting Game 6 of the World Series.The Indians have the opportunity to close out the Chicago Cubs and give Cleveland its second championship in less than five months -- and the Cavs players want to be there to see it. They have already attended home playofff games in each of the first three rounds as a team and Irving said the players intend to walk across the plaza following their game Tuesday to watch the final innings of baseball at Progressive Field.ddddddddddddItll be an experience of a lifetime, Irving said. Game 6 of the World Series, hoo, thats big time. Im excited for them. I know the city is. Im happy our game got moved up. I dont mind moving it for the World Series at all. Itll be an exciting time. Hopefully we can get a suite and we can walk over there as a team and watch our home team go for a championship as well.The Rockets picked up options for the 2017-18 season on both Clint Capela and Sam Dekker on Monday.

The other two, James and Russell Westbrook, were named players of the week.Rockets sharpshooter Ryan Anderson is off to a slow start from the 3-point line in his first season in Houston. Anderson is 3 of 10 from deep, although he is aware teams will be targeting him on the perimeter.Certain teams ... are going to try to eliminate my 3-point shot, he told the Houston Chronicle.
