GOLF

Teen Star Lydia Ko Wins Again in Canada

EDMONTON, Alberta -- Teen star Lydia Ko ran away with the Canadian Women's Open -- again.

The 16-year-old New Zealand amateur successfully defend her title Sunday, closing with a 6-under 64 on Sunday at Royal Mayfair for a five-stroke victory and her fourth win in professional events.

Last year at Vancouver Golf Club in British Columbia, the South Korean-born Ko became the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history at 15 years, 4 months. She also was the fifth amateur winner in tour history and the first since JoAnne Carner in the 1969 Burdine's Invitational.

Ko's other victories in professional events came last year in the New South Wales Open and this year in the New Zealand Women's Open.

Ko had a 15-under 265 total after opening with rounds of 65, 69 and 67.




A stroke behind Caroline Hedwall entering the final round, Ko birdied five of the first eight holes and reached 15 under with a birdie on the par-4 12th. She dropped a stroke on the par-4 13th, parred the next four and closed with a birdie on the par-4 18th.

SOCCER

67G Expected in Washington for Dempsey's MLS Debut

TUKWILA, Wash. -- Aside from his head coach, Brad Evans is about the only one who has been there for all the moments, games and events that have helped define the Seattle Sounders and the wild success of the franchise.

Sunday night will be another one of those memorable events for the Sounders when the second-largest crowd for an MLS regular-season game -- about 67,000 fans -- is expected to see the home side face rival Portland in Clint Dempsey's first home match with Seattle.

The Sounders have played twice with Dempsey, both on the road in Toronto and Houston. It's just luck of the schedule that his home debut comes against Seattle's most heated rival with CenturyLink Field having been sold out for a couple of weeks.

OLYMPICS

Olympian Suspended 2 Years for Skate Tampering

KEARNS, Utah -- Olympic short track medalist Simon Cho has received a two-year suspension from the International Skating Union after admitting he tampered with the skates of a Canadian rival.

U.S. Speedskating announced the decision Sunday. The suspension runs through Oct. 4, 2014, which means Cho will not be eligible to compete for the U.S. short track team at the Sochi Olympics.

Cho confessed on Oct. 5, 2012, that he sabotaged the skates of Canada's Olivier Jean during the 2011 World Team Championship. Cho says he did it at the direction of former short track national coach Jae Su Chun.

Chun denies those allegations. But the ISU suspended him for two years through Aug. 25, 2015, saying he violated the code of ethics.

Cho won a relay bronze medal at the Vancouver Games.

SAILING

Kiwis advance to America's Cup match vs Oracle

SAN FRANCISCO -- Two sailing powerhouses that have spent the summer trading verbal jabs are finally set to meet in the ultimate grudge match -- the America's Cup.

Emirates Team New Zealand zipped through a thick fog and past Italy's Luna Rossa again Sunday, capturing the Louis Vuitton Cup challenger series 7-1 and advancing to the premier event against defending champion and bitter rival Oracle Team USA.

The best-of-17 America's Cup starts Sept 7.

The Kiwis crushed the conditions and the competition in the challenger finals. The closest margin was 1:28, and the lone Luna Rossa win came when Team New Zealand dropped out because the electronics system that controls the hydraulics of its catamaran failed.

The Kiwis won the final race by the largest margin of the series: 3 minutes, 20 seconds.
