    Greatest Sport Moment!

    Hi guys, its poll time and i was wondering what you would class as the greatest sporting event in history. There are a few choices i have come up with. Comment with your choice if its up there or not. Lets see what comes out on top

    Roger Bannister breaks the four-minute mile barrier, 1954
    Many men have run faster since but the four-minute mile was a defining moment in the history of athletics as Roger Bannister broke the magical barrier on a balmy evening at Iffley Road, Oxford, on May 6, 1954.

    Jim Laker makes cricket history, 1956
    Jim Laker spun his way into cricket history by taking 19 of the 20 Australian wickets in England's victory in the fourth Test at Old Trafford.
    The Aussies knew all about Laker, who had taken four hat-tricks against them in the 1951, 53 and 55 Ashes series, but he delivered a devastating blow at Old Trafford, with nine for 37 in the first innings and 10 for 53 in the second.
    Laker, who finished the series with 46 wickets at an average of 9.60, was denied the feat of taking all 20 by Surrey "spin twin" Tony Lock, who captured the other wicket to fall.

    Henry Cooper faces Cassius Clay, 1963
    Thirty thousand fans at Wembley Stadium could scarcely believe their eyes as Enery's 'Ammer exploded on the jaw of brash young Cassius Clay, sending him crashing. Londoner Henry Cooper had thrown the most famous punch in British boxing history to become a national hero to this day.
    The saga of the split glove, as manager Angelo Dundee desperately tried to give the future Muhammad Ali time to regain his senses, has gone down in fistic folklore and Clay recovered to gash Cooper to a bloody fifth round defeat and go on to become "The Greatest".

    Geoff Hurst helps England to World Cup victory, 1966
    Geoff Hurst lashed in the shot which completed his hat-trick, Kenneth Wolstenholme uttered the immortal words "they think it's all over, it is now," the gap-toothed Nobby Stiles danced a jig on the Wembley turf and a nation celebrated the greatest triumph in the history of English football as Bobby Moore collected the Jules Rimet trophy from Her Majesty The Queen.
    The achievement of Sir Alf Ramsey's England team on that July afternoon will never be forgotten by those old enough to have been lucky enough to have been there or watched it on TV.

    Lynn Davies sets British long jump record that lasts 34 years, 1968
    Lynn "The Leap" Davies, already the 1964 Olympic long jump champion, soared into the headlines again, when he broke the British record with a jump of 7.87 metres in Berne, Switzerland, four years later but it was only with the passing of the decades that the true enormity of his achievement became apparent.And it was only a few weeks ago, 34 years on, that the Welshman's record finally fell to Chris Tomlinson. Davies, proud to have held the record for so long, said: "When you think of the advances over the years, it's puzzling why it lasted."

    Red Rum wins historic third Grand National, 1977
    Red Rum became the only horse in the history of the Grand National to win the famous Aintree race three times.
    Trained in the sea on Southport beach by Ginger McCain, in 1973 he overhauled the big Australian horse Crisp for his first National triumph, a year later he defied 12-stone to win again and, after finishing second in 1975 and 76, returned at the age of 12 for one final triumph.
    Carrying top weight of 11st 8lbs, he ran easily throughout the race, took the lead soon after Becher's Brook and went on to win by a remarkable 25 lengths. A true National hero.

    Virginia Wade wins Wimbledon, 1977
    The age of the celebrity superstars of tennis picking up around half a million pounds for winning Wimbledon, was light years away as Virginia Wade, in her 16th attempt, finally won the women's singles title with a 4-6 6-3 6-1 victory over Holland's Betty Stove.
    Wade, almost 32, wearing her lilac cardigan without a sponsor's logo in sight, received her trophy from The Queen - the last time Her Majesty graced Wimbledon's Centre Court and the last time a British player won a singles title there. Will she be tempted back if Tim Henman makes the men's final this year?

    Ian Botham hits the Aussies for six in the Ashes, 1981
    Ian Botham had resigned the captaincy after the second Test at Lord's following a poor run of results and England, one down in the Ashes, series looked to be heading for defeat again.
    At 135 for seven, they needed 92 runs just to make Australia bat again. Enter the irrepressible Botham, who had already dismissed six Australians in their first innings and made a half century in England's first knock.
    He lashed Aussies with a scintillating 149 and, with Bob Willis ripping through the visitors' second innings, inspired one of Test cricket's greatest victories.

    Manchester United win European Cup, 1999
    Manchester United snatched the European Cup from the grasp of Bayern Munich to pull off one of football's greatest escapes. Trailing to a sixth-minute goal from Basler, it looked to be all over for United until the arrival of substitutes Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
    A minute from time goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel ran the length of the pitch for a corner and in the ensuing confusion Sheringham swivelled to sidefoot the equaliser. Then, as extra-time beckoned, Sheringham headed on another David Beckham corner and Solskjaer stabbed home the winner.

    Steve Redgrave wins fifth Olympic rowing gold, 2000
    Immediately after rowing his way to his fourth Olympic gold medal in Atlanta in 1996, Steve Redgrave invited anyone who saw him climb into a boat again to shoot him.Four years later in Sydney, Redgrave, who defied diabetes to push himself through his punishing training regime, returned to become Britain's greatest Olympian as one of the coxless four who, watched by a nation of TV viewers who stayed up through the night, he inspired his team to victory at Penrith Lakes. Knighted for his exploits, he insists he won't be back to make it six in Athens.

    The list is umm, very English...

    I went for Manchester United European Cup/Treble because most of the others are before my time.

    If I were to suggest another, I'd go with 'Shane Warne ball of the century to Mike Gatting, 1993'

    The Ball of the Century, also referred to as the Gatting Ball or simply That Ball, is the name given to a cricket delivery bowled by Australian spin bowler Shane Warne to English batsman Mike Gatting on Day Two during the first Test of the 1993 Ashes series (4 June 1993), which took place at Old Trafford, Manchester. With his first ball against England, in his first Ashes Test, Warne produced a spectacular delivery that bowled Gatting out. It became recognized as being of considerable significance in not just the context of the match or series, but in cricket in general in that it signalled the revival of leg spin bowling.

    @raynrach15 Good Poll!

    There are Some great Sport Moments Missing like:

    -Comăneci's(the best gymnast ever) first major international success came at the age of 13, when she nearly swept the 1975 European Championships in Skien, Norway, winning the all-around and gold medals on every event..

    -Federer that wins the 7th Wimbledon Final

    -Federer Wins 5th Us Open Final

    -nadal so many wins at Roland Garros

    -2005 when Liverpool wins against Ac MILAN UEFA Champions League...FROM 3-0,maybe the greatest final ever!

    And so On!!



    I voted 1999 UEFA Champions League Final won by Manchester United..

    It was pretty amazing how they won in the extra Time against Bayern Munich!!!!

    @raynrach15 I dont know any of the ones listed in the poll, I will search for them and vote later . Also Michael Schumacher winning the Formula One World Championship for the seventh time. @WhiteMamba didnt know about the Gatting Ball, great delivery. Shane Warne in his prime was one of the best spin bowlers.

    Any effort to choose Greatest Sport Moments is subjective
    But this is a nice thread, where people can share their opinion about great moments of sports.

    For me, the Liverpool comeback was epic indeed, even if that team had nothing to do with the greatest one of late 70's and early 80's.....

    Besides, England's World Cup victory, 1966 was not quite ....fair...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Uhe_l1h3w8 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__MJV11nRqU

    Geoff Hurst's goal was not a goal... It never crossed the line as anyone can see in the video (the whole ball must cross the whole line, as regulations state).

    There are lots of moments that I could write, like

    Chris Chataway's fall on 1952 Helsinki Olympic Games, in the 5000 metres final

    RstXMk1.jpg
    in such a great race with Emil Zatopek, Alain Mimoun etc....

    or Jesse Owens legendary wins, with four gold medals at 1936 Belrin Olympics in front of Hitler
    (this is a semanticly important history moment that goes far beyond sports)

    or the 1992 US Olympic basketball team, the best ever basketball team,

    or the Italy-Brazil 3-2, at 1982 World Cup,
    where Paolo Rossi and the other excellent Italian teammates made all of us Brazilian fans cry....not believing that Braziil was out of the tournament and could not win the final....

    I could mention almost hundreds of other great moments.

    But for me, moments like this one are more important than any win

    2009_12_29_GabrieleAndersen.jpg
    Gabriela Andersen finishing 1984 Olympic marathon...

    because as a former athlet I can assure you that all the ultra top athlets are doped...
