Greatest Moments in Sporting History

What was your favourite moment in sporting history? Was it a last second point scored by your favourite player? Was it a beautiful peace of teamwork that brought your team home to victory?

I think we should have a thread to discuss and share. Any sport, any time, anything goes.



Muhammad Ali is my favourite sportsman and this moment comes to mind... (ali beats george)



For me I also thought of some of those perfect NBA dunks. I stumbled upon this nice video..



oh i forgot to post an AFL video, cause i love the game i have to.

July 14, 1997

TWO MISTAKES and a dead radio were not enough to make Alex Zanardi lose his cool.

The Italian driver charged back from 22nd in the 28-car field to win Sunday's Medic Drug Grand Prix of Cleveland, turning the tables on Gil de Ferran.

The 1996 rookie of the year took the lead from de Ferran just six laps from the end of the 90-lap, 189.54-mile event at Burke Lakefront Airport. He then pulled away steadily and won by 1.281 seconds - about eight car-lengths.

That was the end of an improbable day for Zanardi, whose problems began when he found two laps into the race that he could not communicate with his crew by radio.

He started from the pole and still was leading, with de Ferran close behind, when Richie Hearn's deflating left rear tire sent him hurtling into a concrete wall and then into a tire barrier.

Hearn was not injured, but seven cars, led by Zanardi, took advantage of the situation to pit moments after a full-course caution flag was waved. The problem was that Championship Auto Racing Team officials had not opened pit lane yet. He and the others were sent to the back of the field.

Zanardi got a double whammy when he also was penalized for a blend-line violation as he exited the pits. That means Zanardi pulled in ahead of at least one car ahead of him on the track as he left the pits.

surely Niki Lauda getting back into a race car

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWksORxA9l0 (skip to about 28 sec)

, Lauda's Ferrari swerved off the track, due to a suspected rear suspension failure, hit an embankment and rolled back into the path of Brett Lunger's Surtees-Ford car. Lauda's Ferrari burst into flames, but, unlike Lunger, he was trapped in the wreckage. Drivers Arturo Merzario, Brett Lunger, Guy Edwards and Harald Ertl arrived at the scene a few moments later, but before they were able to pull Lauda from his car, he suffered severe burns to his head and inhaled hot toxic gases that damaged his lungs and blood. Although Lauda was conscious and able to stand immediately after the accident, he later lapsed into a coma.[7]
Lauda suffered extensive scarring from the burns, which became possibly his most famous attribute in the eyes of the public. He only had enough reconstructive surgery to get his eyelids to work properly, but never felt a need to do any more.

That's my cue.

Probably not the greatest moment for Aussies because we lost the ashes, but one of the greatest individual performances in a losing side of all time I reckon. I am talking about The Great Man's 40 wickets in the 2005 ashes series. It was like 1993 all over again except this time he wasn't bamboozling them with big turners, he was dominating them with his new ball the slider, which is a straight one. The first dismissal of Ian Bell is a classic delivery and a classic example of a batsman being mentally dominated by a bowler.





He also made 249 runs @27.66 with a top score of 90. That's why he is called The Great Man.

thanks scooby. the one you posted is BRILLIANT - i would class as the pinnacle of that class. Modified versions of the motors you could actually buy in the showroom. No little 4cyl f*****mobiles getting in the way. LP at his best.

Old LP is such an underrated racer - especially seeing as he always had so much involvement in the building of the race engines. He really knew what he was talking about.

Heh, Warney has been all over this guy in more ways than one for a long while now! I remember reading a few titbits here and there and Warney sometimes refers to Ian as the Sherminator from the American Pie movies. Haha, slap him down yo. :)

Watch again Pinky. That hit on Modra... eyes only for the ball. There's a few like that but yes he was a mug. A lot of the players of his era were though. Ablett and Lockett are two that spring to mind.

Strik3r has my favourite part of Sporting History, The Semi Final to the 2003 World cup.

One that does shock me a little tho, is the one (and I guess it's not really relevant to any of the generations that frequent this place, myself included) but Sir Jack Brabham. The only Aussie driver to win 3 championships, and the only driver ever in F1 history to have designed, constructed and then gone on to win in his own car.

Spectacularly, Sir JB won his first championship by pushing his car over the start finish line!!
(skip to 4:45 in this vid)


And Hardware, that vid of Brocky in '87 reminds me of D*** Johnson's vid in qualifying... sure he did crash during that lap, but I've never seen a car quite literally attack the mountain like D***'s 'Green Machine' did in the opening sectors of that lap.
That footage of Brocky really does show why he was considered the 'king of the mountain' I guess.
