Whos the sportsman/women you have most admired even if they have been crap at wot they where trying to do?

My vote goes to one of my childhood heros Marvin Hagler.

I used to love everything about the guy.

The way he dressed, his interviews & his courage.

His fight agains John Mugabi & Thomas Hearns were just awsome.

& boy could he fight..

Can't remember the guys name, but he was a Japanese gymnast in the 1976 Olympics. He broke his leg during the overall competition, but didn't tell anyone because he knew his team needed him if they were going to win the Gold. As I recall he finished the horse and the rings with that broken leg and made a very hard dismount off the rings despite the break. Japan got the Gold.

It has to be Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards...Totally out of his depth...very little training facilities....in a VERY frightening sport.....and most importantly only putting his OWN life in danger..

Mohammad

Mohammad Ali

Floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.

 

 

He never shirked a fight and gave even bums a shot at his title, it's a pitty the great man suffers from Parkinsons Disease.

Very controversially.......... :P

 

Steve Mcmanaman!

 

He got nothing but stick from the English fans and press throughout his England career, being picked out of position in favour of Darren Anderton (What ever was that about???!!!) and over looked from the squad in 1998 behind Paul Merson (see previous comment in brackets!) but still made someting of himself.

 

He became the first Englishman to captain Real Madrid, winning all the Spanish trophies and 2 European cup finals. In the first of the two he played alongside Zidane, Ronaldo, Raul and Carlos in their pomp (the best footie team i've seen in my lifetime) and was man of the match!

 

I grew up a Liverpool fan by the way!

A good player in his day but greatest ever sportsman?? I am afraid I could no way put him anywhere near Ali, Redgrave, Pele, Armstrong etc

 

But I suppose sport is all about opinions.

I'm DEFINATELY NOT saying he was the best ever sportsman; i thought the topic was "sportsmen you admire most"?

 

I used to think Maradonna was the greatest ever footballer until i saw some clips of Pele on you tube! Considering he played in a time when a lot of matches weren't recorded for television I was amazed at how many great goals of his there were to see.............! :Goal1:

 

 

 

 

 

Steve Mcmanaman is the third best footballer ever! :Save1:

I don't mean this as a flame but i found him a total embarrassment and he should not have been there. the olympics for me are for athletes at the top of thier game. he did it to make money which he got then lost.
Second vote for Lance Armstrong - cancer survivor and 7-time winner of what is arguably one of the toughest sporting events.
Butg he's a junkie

I hate watching races where one guy will stay near the back for much of the race and then rely on a sprint finish to win. I much prefer watching athletes who are prepared to be front runners, such as Paula Radcliffe.

 

In the golfing world, I was always a great fan of Gary Player, who has won many tournaments all over the world.

My vote goes to John Daly, golfer. The guy was just one of us, liked his beer, women, brawls.......more than his golf. But could have been one of the greatest, especially with his long drives.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
