2018 Laver Cup Rosters Completed, China’s Liu Breaks World Record at Asian Games and Usain Bolt Trains with Australia’s Central Coast Mariners for the First Time

The 2018 Laver Cup, which takes place from September 21 to 23 in Chicago, now has completed rosters for both Team Europe and Team World. The tennis tournament debuted last year and pits an all-star team of European players against one of players from around the rest of the world. The Express reports that the completed Team Europe comprises British No. 1 Kyle Edmund with Wimbledon and Cincinnati Masters champion Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Alexander Zverev, Grigor Dimitrov and David Goffman. Team World completed their lineup with American Jack Sock, who joins Juan Martin del Potro, Kevin Anderson, John Isner, Diego Schwartzman and Nick Kyrgios.

Chinese swimmer Liu Xiang broke the world record for 50m backstroke today at the Asian Games in Jakarta, according to Channel NewsAsia. At 26.98 seconds, Liu beat the previous record held by another Chinese swimmer, Zhao Jing, of 27.06 seconds set in Rome at the 2009 world championships.

"It was like a dream," gasped the former world bronze medallist. "I didn't expect to do that. I've improved my kick in the last few months and I think maybe that's what made the difference."

Eight-time Olympic champion sprinter Usain Bolt trained, for the first time, with Australian football (soccer) team the Central Coast Mariners today, according to the Associated Press. Bolt expressed his ambition to prove himself to the team and bring them success.

"I look forward to scoring as many goals as possible and bringing home the trophy," Bolt said. "But I'm just trying to get over the first hurdle now, that's to get a contract."
