Oakley golf sensation Yani Tseng weathered (yes, pun intended) some serious conditions at the Scottsdale, Arizona based Founders Cup to secure her second LPGA title in four events on the year. Her victory at the Wildfire Golf Club also marked her 14th career LPGA victory. Did we mention she’s only 24 years old? Tseng’s remarkable rise to the top of the LPGA is a true testament to her hard work and determination on and off the course.
Love him or loathe him…but one thing is certain. Janko Tipsarevic draws a whole lot of attention. Oakley’s International Tennis Star – complete with his signature tattoos, exuberant personality, off-the-court activities (Electronic Dance Music DJ by night) and trademark style (read: killer performance eyewear) – made major waves in the 2011 season, skyrocketing to a World No. 9 ranking.

Spanning eight days and covering 155.5 kilometers, the 70th edition of the Paris-Nice was no walk (or ride) in the park. Oakley rider Bradley Wiggins found this out first hand, narrowly riding away with the overall victory by a margin of just eight seconds. The 31-year-old Bradley outlasted his Dutch rival, Lieuwe Westra, in the final and decisive mountain time trial stage, finishing just two seconds ahead, securing the overall title for the first time in his career.
