Here is a link to Conway's Twitter acount.
Kayla Rae Reid, Ryan Lochte GF, hot new Instagram pics (photos gallery)
What a year it has been for Olympic swimming sensation Ryan Lochte. Just two months after ruining U.S. relations in Brazil, Lochte is now engaged to be married. The Olympic gold medalist took his girlfriend, Playboy model Kayla Rae Reid, to the top of a mountain - overlooking the Pacific Ocean - and asked her to marry him. Reid said yes. Lochte and Reid have been dating for less than a year. "My family says, 'Don't you think it's a little too soon?' I'm like, 'Can you put a time on love?,"...
Hide-and-seek is coming out of the sporting shadows
You probably assumed that your hide-and-seek playing days ended when you turned 10, but one group of adults wants to make it an Olympic sport. The Nascondino (hide-and-seek in Italian) World Championship takes place every year in Italy and it’s a growing "sport." The event, which is heading to the ghost town of Consonno, Italy, on Sept. 3 and 4, features teams from around the world. The teams are divided into four groups, with one person from each team hiding, while searchers count to 60 before...
Kasi Bennett, Usain Bolt girlfriend, hot Instagram pics (photos gallery)
Olympic superstar Usain Bolt is well on his way to Wilt Chamberlain territory as he brought approximately 10 women back to his hotel room in London this week. It comes on the heels of several stories that speak of Bolt going on some sort of sex-capade post-Rio Games. His longtime girlfriend, Kasi Bennett, is not happy - according to this Sun report. Above are some of Bennett's best offerings on Instagram.
Lenny Wilkens says 1992, 1996 Dream Teams were best but 2016 isn't far behind
The United States Olympic men’s basketball team may be golden but this 2016 team is not the best ever, so says one NBA coaching legend who also has tasted Olympic gold. Lenny Wilkens will likely go down as one of the best point guards and coaches ever in the NBA. He also was the man who led the 1996 Olympic basketball squad, dubbed ‘Dream Team II’ by fans and the media. With that group he had to manage egos, unreasonable expectations and yet churned out dominance. Wilkens was an assistant with...
PHOTOS: Biles beam slip crushes five-gold dream
As expected, gymnast extraordinaire Simone Biles picked up her fourth medal at the Rio Olympics. Only problem was it was not the color the American wanted. The glum look on her face as she stood on the lowest platform of the podium said it all -- she had not won a bronze medal on the balance beam. She had just lost her chance at creating history. All the soaring expectations about Biles becoming the first female gymnast to win five golds at a single Olympics came crashing down in a heartbeat -- thanks to a split-second wobble on a four-inch wide block of wood.
PHOTOS: Superstar Bolt completes historic Olympic run
For 9.81 glorious seconds on Sunday, all the ills that have dogged athletics recently were forgotten as Usain Bolt stormed to victory in the 100 meters final to become the first man to win three successive Olympic titles on the track. The Jamaican superstar trailed arch-rival Justin Gatlin, roundly booed by the Rio crowd for his doping past, until the 70 meter mark but then swept past the American, finding time to pat his chest as he crossed the line a meter clear. Gatlin, the 2004 champion who came into the race with the season's fastest time of 9.80, took second in 9.89. Canada's Andre de Grasse claimed bronze in 9.91 seconds – the same finishing order as in last year's world championships.
PHOTOS: Coronation complete as Simone Biles wins all-around gold
As Simone Biles stood locked in a tight embrace with her team mate Aly Raisman, waiting for her final score to come up on the big screen, the concerned look in her eyes suggested she had no idea who would be crowned Olympic all-around champion. The American, however, was the only one still in the dark in the brightly lit Rio Olympic Arena on Thursday as the hollering cheers and standing ovation that greeted her final tumbling pass on the floor exercise confirmed what everyone knew long before the judges' verdict came up – Biles was the new champion.
PHOTOS: Night of individual firsts in Rio pool
First time Olympic winners, including Australian teen Kyle Chalmers in the 100 meters freestyle, plundered three of the four golds in the Rio pool on Wednesday but there was no getting past Katie Ledecky. On a night of novelty, with Mireia Belmonte becoming Spain's first women's Olympic swimming gold medalist and Dmitry Balandin winning Kazakhstan's first medal and title in the sport at a Games, freestyle phenomenon Ledecky provided consistency. Swimming the anchor leg of the 4x200m freestyle...
The Olympic sports that burn the most and least calories
The armchair spectators among you have probably come to the conclusion that some Olympic sports really are more physically demanding than others — and now science has proved it. Experts from treated.com, an online clinic, researched 28 Olympic events and discovered how many calories each event burns. The scientists, who released their findings on the run-up to the Games in Rio, found that some activities, such as running, burn up to seven times as many calories as other more sedate sports....
PHOTOS: Two more golds for Phelps; Hosszu and Ledecky march on
Michael Phelps won two gold medals on Tuesday, avenging his 200 meters butterfly defeat from the London Olympics and then anchoring the U.S. 4x200 freestyle team to victory on a night of high drama and emotion in the pool. Katie Ledecky of the United States won her second gold medal of the meeting and Hungary's Katinka Hosszu her third, extending their dominance of women's swimming in feats that on any other day would have grabbed top billing. Instead it was Phelps, the most successful Olympian of all time, who stole the limelight, extending his career medal tally to 25 by adding golds number 20 and 21.
PHOTOS: Russia vs. USA – a tense race, a strained aftermath
The women's 100 meters breaststroke final at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics on Monday had already crackled with tension in a tight finish but it was nothing compared to what transpired afterwards. American Lilly King held off fast-finishing Russian Yulia Efimova to clinch the title, with fellow American Katie Meili winning bronze. King broke the Olympic record to win. If the race itself was nail-biting, the aftermath was excruciating given King had stoked the flames beforehand, speaking out against the inclusion of Efimova after she successfully appealed a ban imposed for past doping suspensions.
New York City seeks U.S. funds for $1 million daily security costs for Trump
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Two members of New York City's council are calling on President-elect Donald Trump to provide federal funds to reimburse the city for the $1 million-a-day cost of protecting him and his family in their home in Trump Tower on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue. In an online petition launched on Friday, Speaker of the New York City Council Melissa Mark Viverito and council member Dan Garodnick said the cost of the Trump's security should be borne by the federal government, not by the...

'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' plans 2018 Broadway debut
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - After a hit debut on London's West End this summer, "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" is in talks to move to New York's Broadway in 2018, producers said on Friday. The play, based on author J.K.

The Lyric Theater is one of...
Peter Doherty embraces growing up, fatherhood and the return of the Libertines
Musician Peter Doherty was troubled. His fans knew it, and there wasn’t much use in denying it. But after stints in prison and rehab — as well as being a permanent fixture in the British tabloid press, mostly thanks to his on-off relationship with model Kate Moss — the 37-year-old is now clean. Doherty’s The Libertines, who last released an album 11 years ago, have now made the music rather than their personal lives the main focus of the media, with the release of “Anthem for Doomed Youth.”
'Things to Come' is the year's other great Isabelle Huppert movie
‘Things to Come’ Director: Mia Hansen-Love Stars: Isabelle Huppert, Roman Kolinka Rating: NR 5 (out of 5) Globes Nothing is permanent in the movies of Mia Hansen-Love. Halfway through “The Father of My Children,” what we assumed was our lead character — a frazzled-but-cool French film producer — offs himself, leaving his wife and children to pick up the pieces. “Goodbye, First Love” is indeed a movie about youthful heartbreak. The electronic music epic “Eden” runs long enough that a hot (but...
Golf: Woods starts fast again, struggles at finish in Hero event
(Reuters) - For a third day in a row, Tiger Woods treated his fans to a rousing start in his much anticipated return to competition but lost momentum over the closing stretch at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas on Saturday. Woods, who had been sidelined for nearly 16 months due to back-related issues, birdied six of the first 11 holes while briefly closing to within two shots of the lead before bogeying 13 and 14, and ending the third round with a double bogey. The 40-year-old Woods, the...
Chelsea apologizes to abused former player
LONDON (Reuters) - English soccer club Chelsea issued a public apology to former striker Gary Johnson on Saturday for the sexual abuse he suffered as a young player and said it had been wrong to insist on a confidentiality clause when paying him compensation. Johnson, 57, said on Friday that he had been abused by former Chelsea chief scout Eddie Heath in the 1970s, receiving 50,000 pounds from the club in settlement in 2015. In a statement the club said their former player had "suffered...
Half F1 grid is after Rosberg's seat, says Lauda
By Alan Baldwin LONDON (Reuters) - Mercedes have been approached by half the Formula One grid since world champion Nico Rosberg announced his retirement on Friday, according to the team's non-executive chairman Niki Lauda. "Practically half of Formula One and maybe more. I am constantly taking calls," the Austrian told Italy's Gazzetta dello Sport on Saturday. Lauda, himself a triple world champion who announced his retirement in 1979 and then came back three years later and won the 1984 title,...
New dating app connects users based on interests instead of looks
Looks matter—to a point. When you’re seeking out qualities in a potential romantic partner, physical attraction is a biggie, but there’s plenty more that goes into the compatibility equation: shared interests, values, even pheromones? As our Going Out editor Eva Kis says, “You can always look better, but you can’t pretend to like ‘Star Wars’.” So, working off that premise: imagine you are single in New York and you’re really excited about seeing "Rogue One," but you don’t have anyone to go...
Padma Lakshmi says you should sip on tequila this winter
Padma Lakshmi thinks tequila is a spirit for all seasons. The executive producer and host of “Top Chef” gained a deeper appreciation for the alcohol while filming season 14 of Bravo’s hit reality cooking show — which dropped last night. While this season is based in Charleston, South Carolina, a later episode brings its contestants even farther south to Jalisco, Mexico, where they compete to make the best tequila cocktail at sponsor Patrón ’s Hacienda distillery.
