Unbelievable. I can't imagine how angry Cunego is with himself...

That was one of the most impressive come-from-behind wins I have seen in any sport in recent memory.
It is also a bit frustrating to see nary a mention of it in the US news.
They put the new Miss America on the front page but Levi did not even make the front page of the Sports section.
Regardless, that was a spectacular finish for Levi, congrats!

If there isn't a ball involved, most sports media outlets don't care!

Levi's head is shaped like a ball, and they still don't care.

"a ball"

Yeah, Lance tends to get far more press than Levi.
