iStock/Thinkstock(PARIS) -- The Tour de France will use thermal cameras this year to detect hidden motors used by cyclists to gain an unfair advantage, French officials announced Monday.

The new technology will crack down on so-called "mechanical doping," and attempt to maintain the integrity of professional cycling, a sport that has been plagued in the past with doping scandals involving performance-enhancing drugs.

Earlier this year, the International Cycling Union (UCI) discovered that Belgian cyclist Femke Van den Driessche concealed an electric motor in her bike during the Women Under 23 race of the UCI Cyclocross World Championships, according to the UCI.

She was suspended for six years and ordered to return all medals and prize money.

Thierry Braillard, the French Secretary of State for Sports, announced the use of thermal cameras at a news conference this morning with Thierry Mandon, the French Secretary of State for Higher Education and Research; Brian Cookson, the president of the UCI; David Lappartient, president of the French Cycling Federation; and Christian Prudhomme, director of the Tour de France.

The cameras were produced by the Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission in collaboration with the French government.

Scott Clarke / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — Venus Williams is far more than a legendary tennis champion.

The 7-time Grand Slam singles title holder spent years in her sport rallying for equal pay among both the men and women. And guess what, Williams, through her collaboration with the Women’s Tennis Association, a 2006 Op-Ed titled "Venus Williams On Equal Pay at Wimbledon," and her famed play on the court, she got tennis' biggest tournament to erase the pay gap.

In 2007, two years after Williams first solo win at the All England Club, the chairman of the tournament finally said it was time to "eliminate the difference" in pay, an unprecedented move.

That may have been almost a decade ago, but what Williams accomplished has never been more relevant. With Wimbledon underway Monday, Williams recently spoke to ABC News, reflecting on what she accomplished and how far the rest of sports still has to go.

"Tennis is definitely a star for women in sports," she said when asked about her leadership in the equal pay movement. "[But] other sports have a long way to go."

Williams, now 36, added that the "world [and sports] reflect where women are" in it, and that "there's always work to be done."

Just this past March, U.S. women's soccer filed a wage-discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The filing, obtained by ESPN, cited how much more revenue women in soccer generate than men, despite the fact they are paid "almost four times less," ESPN reported.

In spite of the large discrepancies in sports like soccer, Williams admitted there are positive things happening.

"As long as we set up equality, we'll go in the right direction," she said.

In an interview with ESPN two years ago, Williams said about her efforts a decade back, "A lot of players were not comfortable talking about equal prize money for whatever reason, or maybe weren't able to express exactly how they felt. But I was."

Williams has never been afraid to say what's on her mind and when asked by ABC News about substances, banned or legal, as they pertain to tennis, she had a simple answer.

"It's something that you just have to be aware of," she said. "Athletes like everyone else, at times take supplements, but just have to consult your doctors and work on that. It's a process but it's achievable ... it's my job to be healthy."

Williams spoke to ABC News as part of a campaign with Silk, promoting a plant-based diet, so what an athlete puts into his or her body is something she takes seriously.

Maria Sharapova was not brought up by name, but the famed tennis champion was in the news earlier this month, after receiving a two-year suspension for taking a substance that was added to the banned list in January.

When asked about the evolving and changing list, Williams said, "It's updated every year, so you have to stay abreast the best you can."

At a press conference on June 8, Sharapova said she "did not" intentionally take the banned substance.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- A young baseball fan watching a game at the College World Series on Saturday didn’t keep his eyes on the field the entire time.

The boy spent at least some of the game engaged in an epic stare-down with a TV camera -- and he won.

So this just happened... #CWS

— NCAA Baseball (@NCAACWS) June 26, 2016

In a video that has quickly gone viral, the boy is seen staring at an ESPN camera that trained its lens on him during the Coastal Carolina University versus Texas Christian University game. The freckle-faced boy stares straight at the camera without blinking and while making funny faces.

The cameras also caught the moment when it the adult sitting next to the boy appears to shows him that he has become a viral star.

That moment you realize you have become an Internet sensation! #CWS

Jared C. Tilton/Getty Images(SONOMA, Calif.) — With a last-lap pass, in his final year of NASCAR Spint Cup racing, Tony Stewart won on Sunday.  The veteran's victory in the Toyota-Save Mart 350 at Sonoma breaks a three-year, 84-race drought.

Stewart took the lead after a pit call and restart on Lap 91 of the 110 lap race, but, reports, Denny Hamlin was able to pass Stewart after he wheel-hoped into Turn 7.  But Stewart caught Hamlin in Turn 11, making contact with Hamlin's No. 11 Toyota and sending it into the outside wall.

Hamlin was able to hold on for a second-place finish.

Elsa/Getty Images(KNOXVILLE, Tenn.) -- The health of former Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt is declining, according to a statement.

“On behalf of Pat Summitt’s family, we acknowledge the past few days have been difficult for Pat as her early onset dementia, ‘Alzheimer’s Type,’ progresses," said spokesperson Erin Freeman. "She is surrounded by those who mean the most to her and during this time, we ask for prayers for Pat and her family and friends, as well as your utmost respect and privacy. Thank you.”

Summitt, 64, made history taking the University of Tennessee's Lady Vols to more victories than any men's or women's college basketball team coach. She coached from 1974 to 2012 and started when she was just 22 years old, claiming eight NCAA titles with the team over her career.

In 2011, she announced that she was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease.

"It hurt me but I go, 'Well, I got to do it. I got to deal with it,'" she told ABC News' Robin Roberts at the time.

Summitt was the first N-C-A-A basketball coach, and one of only four in history, to reach 1,000 wins.  She was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2000. In 2012, President Obama awarded Summit the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

As the man known as Charlie Hustle spoke, music hinting that his time was running short began to play. Rose, though, refused to be played off. "In closing, I can honestly tell you to date this is the biggest thing ever to happen to me in baseball," he concluded.

Scott Clarke / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) -- Shortstop Jose Reyes signed a minor league contract with the New York Mets Saturday after becoming a free agent earlier in the day, according to ESPN.

Reyes was originally signed by the Mets in 1999 when he was a teenager out of the Dominicatn Republic.

According to ESPN, Reyes was a member of the Mets organization for 12 years and won the National League batting title in 2011. He then left the Mets for a 6-year, $106 million contract with the Miami Marlins.

After being suspended by the MLB for violating its domestic abuse policy, Reyes appeared in nine games with Triple-A Aluquerque, and last week, the Rockies designated him for assignment, ESPN reports.

The Mets announced Saturday that Reyes will report to Class A Brooklyn and is expected to play Sunday.

PowerFly/ YORK) -- Flyboarding, when a rider zips around on a hoverboard propelled by water, is the very latest in extreme sports with a twist of sci-fi.

And stuntwoman Gemma Weston, a 29-year-old from New Zealand, is the number one female professional flyer in the world.

“Being able to fly is to push the boundaries of what is possible ... you do literally feel like you are flying and you feel a little bit like a superhero,” she told Nightline.

The hoverboard and its rider “fly” into the air by the force of water pumped through a hose by a jet ski engine. Flyboarding was only invented in 2011 by professional French jet skier Frank Zapata, but once she saw it, Weston couldn’t resist.

Her intrinsic thrill-seeking spirit led her to a career as a stuntwoman. She has appeared in The Hobbit trilogy, Spartacus and Pete’s Dragon.

Weston can perform twists, dives and backflips as she zips over the open water. She entered the 2015 World Cup in Dubai as an unknown, and she crushed it, taking first place.

“My best trick I would say is one that I am not sure many people can do,” she said. “It’s basically a kind of side flip. I kind of go down and compress my body to the side and let my knees rise up over my body and kind of rotate so it’s kind of a forward moving side flip.”

After her World Cup win, she had two goals: winning big again this year and bringing Flyboarding to the masses.

Weston and her brother Beau Weston, also a Flyboarder, train in Melbourne, Florida, with Mark Baxter’s Powerfly Team.

“Gemma, she is something,” Baxter said. “She has a very natural talent for Flyboarding. When she came, it was actually a year ago, and here she is, the world champion.”

Baxter says the equipment is evolving as quickly as the sport. Already the best Flyboarders can control both board and jet ski at the same time by remote control, and Zapata is now developing a new futuristic-looking hoverboard that could remove the hose and jet ski attachment.

The Westons are one of the only brother-sister duos competing in extreme sports today, and the two competed at the 2016 Flyboarding European Championship in France earlier this month. Beau placed sixth, but his sister Gemma again placed first.

“New Zealanders are called ‘kiwis’ because that is our national bird, but it’s a flightless bird, so they can’t fly, but we’re proving Kiwis can fly,” Gemma Weston said.
