- By now you’ve probably learned how the stars aligned last night: the sky was lit by a moon closer to the earth than it had been in 18 years, Jon Jones dismantled Shogun Rua to become the youngest UFC champion ever, and just hours before, the phenom helped stop and subdue a carjacker. Here’s Jones telling his superhero tale at the UFC post-fight press conference. [Bloody Elbow]
- Wrestler Anthony Robles entered the NCAA Division I wrestling tournament as the number one seed at 125 pounds. He was also born with just a single leg.

- Having “unrealistic” athletic goals is a good thing, says Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Body. Dangerous advice for people who take that to mean throwing safety out the window, but important advice nonetheless for breaking personal barriers and realizing potential. Ferriss’s friend writes how his 70 year-old father set an unrealistic goal of becoming a powerlifter, and how he succeeded. [Four Hour Work Week]
- For years now, athletes have been discovering how yoga can be beneficial to improving their overall performance and recovery. Check these five yoga poses recommended to runners. [Women’s Health]
- A video of a 16 year-old teen fighting back against a bully went viral last week, bringing the issue of schoolyard bullies to the forefront.
