How to use champion in a sentence?

  1. Tiger Woods:

    Its overwhelming, just because of what has transpired, last year I was lucky to be playing again. At the previous years [champions]dinner, I was really struggling. I missed a couple of years not playing this great tournament. To now be the champion ... 22 years between [first and latest] wins is a long time. Its unreal to experience this.

  2. Rachel Nichols:

    Rachel Nichols said it was surprising and disappointing that the NBA did not do the same especially when it had tributes for civil rights icon John Lewis and actor Chadwich Boseman. If you are a league that holds equality as a core value, and I know for sure that this league does, the icons of that equality cant be those who just helped the men that we all see on TV but those who paved the way for the women who worked right alongside them, after all, the NBA is significantly stronger because of all the women who work in it and around it. And we are all significantly stronger because a young lawyer dedicated her life to allow us to have those opportunities. WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert released a statement on Bader Ginsburg death on Friday two days before the Las Vegas Aces and Connecticut Sun played their playoff game. Sad to hear of the passing of an icon, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a role model, and a champion for equality for so many.

  3. Tony Finau:

    It was a different feel for me, being a champion and being here feels great. This is one of those tournaments, when you win a golf tournament you look so forward to this week. Just teeing it up with all the guys that have won, it's a special field.

  4. Noah Lyles:

    So many times this year I have thought about being world champion, you wouldn't believe it, i have it on my phone, I say it to Noah Lyles in my car, I think it all the time and to have finally done it feels unbelievable.

  5. Miguel Cabrera:

    Though Miguel Cabrera, a two-time American League Most Valuable Player, 11-time All-Star and World Series champion, has become one of the most recognizable faces on the baseball diamond, Miguel Cabrera said Miguel Cabrera’s sent medicine, food and other supplies back to Miguel Cabrera homeland. My people, I am speaking to you from my heart, there is no war, there is only a war for power, let’s call for elections. Call yourself whatever you want, a chavista, opposition, whatever you want to call yourself. But we need to have elections.
