Read about history and pick out an interesting one.

2006North Korea tests four short-range missiles, one medium-range missile and a long-range Taepodong-2. The long-range Taepodong-2 reportedly fails in mid-air over the Sea of Japan.

1975Arthur Ashe becomes the first black man to win the Wimbledon singles title.

Arthur Ashe might have won several in a row … if the great Bjorn Borg hadn't appeared on the scene.
