    Bringing a two-shot lead into the final round of the LPGA Kia Classic, Beatriz Recari most likely didn’t have eyes on winning the tournament in dramatic fashion. Slow and steady, banking on her impressive lead. That wasn’t the case however, as Recari finished Sunday’s round at Aviara in Carlsbad, California, tied for the lead with I.K. Kim. Both Recari and Kim three-putted the 18th hole to force a two-hole playoff. The two would repeat their performances on 18, during the first playoff hole, forcing another hole. That was when Recari sank an 18-foot birdie putt from the fringe to secure her second career LPGA title.

    Aksel Lund Svindal and Lindsey Vonn are no strangers to Audi FIS Alpine World Cup season titles, but 2012-2013 has been remarkable in its own right for these two. A few deciding, races late in the season, were to be held in Lezerheide, Switzerland on Wednesday, however the weather had other plans. After numerous delays, Wednesday’s scheduled events were canceled due to fog. While many would be disappointed with the result, this meant that both Svindal and Vonn would claim season titles, in multiple disciplines, based on final point standings. The Norwegian, Svindal claimed the downhill and Super G World Cup titles, bringing his career title count to an impressive nine. While Svindal’s story is remarkable in itself, it is Vonn’s season that is grabbing headlines across the globe. Just five short weeks after a devastating season-ending knee injury, Vonn still had enough season points to retain the overall downhill title. Vonn beat Slovenia’s Tina Maze by a single point.

    Spain’s Javier Gomez Noya is a triathlon force to be reckoned with. He proved so by his lack of time off between wins from one season to the next. Capping off his 2012 season with wins in the ITU Grand Final in Auckland and X-Terra World Championships in Maui, Hawaii, Gomez Noya began his 2013 season in similar fashion. The 2012 London Olympic silver medalist won the 2013 Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon in San Francisco, CA by over a minute.
