Greatest Individual Sporting Achievement of 2009

I'm bored already with blanket 24/7 coverage of football - soccer to some - so decided to ponder on individual sporting achievements during the year. Ok - so it's only early-September, but maybe, come December we can have a poll for the Pattaya Addicts Individual Sports Achievement of the Year. S, September or not, that's no excuse for not identifying some of the likely contenders.

 

For me, it would be Lance Armstrong coming back at the age of 37 to finish 3rd in the Tour de France.

 

However, I can also see merit in the claims of the following:

 

* Roger Federer - French Open, Wimbledon - though I am not really a tennis fan, I think he has to be the best ever.

* Usian Bolt - except he is so far ahead of everyone else, he doesn't (seem) to have to put that much effort in.

* Kenenisa Bekele - the incredible Ethiopian distance runner who defies everyone else's tactics.

* Steve Hooker - the Australian pole-vaulter who won the World Championship in Berlin taking only two jumps because of a groin injury.

 

I can empathise with the last because it sounds like me in Pattaya - only two jumps & a groin injury.

 

But over to you for your support or alternatives; but remember no team players unless it's an individual event.

When a man is tired of Pattaya, he is tired of life.

Disqualified - I understand it was a team event.

Well I'd be sure to have Tom Watson in the frame.

I'd rather look at tits, cunts and arseholes than listen to them!

Darts is not a sport though

Went to the zoo today. Spent ages at the camel enclosure, looking at their toes. They look nothing like a fanny. Disappointing.

It's a long running debate in my family and friend circle. Some say darts is not a sport, some say it is. To be honest it's classed as a Sport by the powers that be so it's a sport i guess.

'tis a natural high, isn't it? You will have to tell me, as I have never experienced that, that I remember.

This is a 2006 record but probably no one on the board would be aware of it. How about a 1010 pound bench press. :001_Thank_You5:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlDWdfTAx8o

 

What is more impressive, to me, is the 630 lb bench press achieved by maybe the same guy? No shirt, no lifting suit, no steroids or growth chemicals, as he was doing it at a tested event. 630 lbs, raw without the boing-boing springy shirt, the steroids... just him, the bar, and gravity.

 

Now THAT's entertainment!
