    Top 5 Sporting Moments

    Off topic discussion

    What are the top 5 sporting moments you've seen in your lifetime?


    In no particular order:

    Tiger Wood - Masters (2019)
    Usain Bolt - 3rd 100 metres Gold Medal
    Frankel - 2000 Guineas
    Roger Federer - Wimbledon (2017)
    Tiger Roll - 2nd Grand National (2019)


    I have had the 2005 Ashes Series and the Johnny Wilkinson drop goal to win the Rugby World Cup pretty high.
    Also the Zidane headbutt in the 2006 WC final is pretty memorable.

    Subject to change

    Bolt is 99.9% a drugcheat, every single one of his jamaican teammates have been caught.
    Why on earth would Jamaica suddenly produce several sprinting champions without state sponsored cheating.

    circa - East Germany in 1970's, China in the 80's and 90's and more recently Russia.

    If Bolt was caught they would have to close down the lot. So massive cover up is likely involved.

    And I'm not normally one of those illuminati/conspiracy types as they're wierdo's.

    This just makes more sense than him being clean.

    Therefore you should take him off your list.

    In my top 10, I would have to include :

    London 2012 Olympics’ ‘Super Saturday’ when in case you had forgotten

    British trio Jessica Ennis-Hill, Greg Rutherford and Mo Farah all struck gold within just 44 minutes of each other.

    For me this was all about, the occasion, the timing and 3 Athletic golds on the world stage at our own Olympics. It doesn't get much better then that.

    I guess it's a weird one because they're so personal as well.

    For eg being behind the goal at Wembley when Zamora scored to promote QPR was one of the greatest moments of my life - I reckon it won't wage high on other people's!

    Likewise the 2009 Irish Grand Slam, Sexton's 41 phase drop goal vs France, Leinster's Heineken Cup final comeback (22-3 down at half time, won 33-22) or the Munster Miracle Match won't be high on other people's lists.

    The Miracle in Medinah was a great one though.

    Aguero - as a QPR season ticket holder, I had a ticket for that game, but I went out till 3am as it was my birthday. When I woke up I couldn't face going to Manchester with a hangover to watch us get relegated. Got that one wrong!

    I would NEVER take Bolt off the list... for the following reasons.

    The 100 metres is 'Get from point A to point B from stationary as quickly as you can'.

    Every human has therefore got a chance. Over the thousands of years we've been a species, Usain Bolt has done it THE fastest.

    Whether he's had performance enhancing drugs and to what extent doesn't concern me. If you argue someone else COULD with that, so be it, beating Bolts record will be a monumental achievement and would then maybe enter my top 5.

    The fact he spanned 8 years and stayed health adds to the story and overall achievement.

    All that and you're the one who has to prove it, not me. 99.9% is a silly guess... but a guess nonetheless.

    Bolt is a legend. The 100m is the absolute pinnacle of human athletisism. Why don't you take some drugs and see if you can beat him?... if you do, you'll make it into the top 5

    Yeah I can see that... certainly only really means anything if you're British but that's the same as things like the Ashes and Miracle in Medina
