June 26

1959–Ingemar Johansson knocks out Floyd Patterson in the third round at Yankee Stadium to win the world heavyweight title.

1990–Jennifer Capriati, 14, defeats Helen Kelesi 6-3, 6-1 in the first round to become the youngest winner of a match in Wimbledon history.

1995–The U.S. Supreme Court upholds a random drug-testing program in Vernonia, Ore. The 6-to-3 decision allows public high school officials to require student-athletes to submit to random urinalysis as a condition of being allowed to play interscholastic sports.

1998–Jamaica becomes the first Caribbean nation to win a World Cup soccer match since Cuba beat Romania in 1938. Theodore Whitmore scores in the 40th and 54th minutes as the Jamaicans beat Japan 2-1.

2000–Vince Spadea snaps an ATP-record 21-match losing streak with a four-hour upset of 14th-seeded Greg Rusedski of Britain, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-7 (8), 9-7 at Wimbledon. Spadea last won in Lyon, France, in October 1999.

2002–In one of the most extraordinary days at the All England Club, seven-time champion Pete Sampras, 1992 winner Andre Agassi and No. 2-seeded Marat Safin all lose–throwing the Wimbledon tournament wide open. For the first time in the Open era, five of the top-eight seeded men's players are eliminated before the third round.

2005–Birdie Kim holes a 30-yard bunker shot to birdie the 18th hole and win the U.S. Women's Open. The 23-year-old South Korean finishes at 3-over 287 for a two-shot win over 17-year-old Morgan Pressel and 19-year-old Brittany Lang.

2005–Justin Gatlin cements his status as America's fastest human by winning the 200 meters, becoming the first man in 20 years to sweep the sprints at the U.S. track and field championships. A day after winning the 100, Gatlin wins the 200 in 20.04 seconds. The last man to win both races at the U.S. meet was Kirk Baptiste in 1985.

2008–Two stunning second-round upsets happen at Wimbledon as former champion Maria Sharapova and two-time runner-up Andy Roddick are ousted. Sharapova loses 6-2, 6-4 to 20-year-old Alla Kudryavtseva, a 154th-ranked Russian. Roddick goes out 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 7-6 (4) to 40th-ranked Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia.

2011–Top-ranked Yani Tseng wins the LPGA Championship by 10 strokes and, at 22, becomes the youngest player to win four LPGA Tour majors. Tseng closes with a 6-under 66 to finish at 19-under 269 at Locust Hill Country Club in Pittsford, N.Y., matching the LPGA record low score at a major. Tseng bettered Se Ri Pak, who was 24 when she won her fourth major.

2012–Major college football finally gets a playoff. A committee of university presidents approve the BCS commissioners' plan for a four-team playoff to start in the 2014 season. The new format creates a pair of national semifinals. No. 1 will play No. 4, No. 2 will play No. 3. The teams will be selected by a committee, similar to the way the NCAA basketball tournament field is set.
