All across the sporting world, training sessions are at a fever pitch: NBA superstars are gearing up for the 2010 season, elite runners are preparing for the New York City marathon, UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar is hitting the bags for a championship match, and our very own Manny Pacquiao is hard at work for his next big fight.
