What’s your sporting moment of 2009?

Think back over the past twelve months, what sporting moment grabbed you? It doesn’t matter what sport it is or how big the sporting event was, we just want to know about the “wow” factor. Tell us about the drama, excitement or surprise.

Was it Usain Bolt smashing world records? Or how about England regaining the ashes? Contador beating armstrong in the Tour de France? Or maybe you enjoy some controversy? Henry’s handball or Caster Semenya’s Gold?

For what it’s worth, my sporting moments this year have usually revolved around one hungarian. Just goes to show you its not always about the big names.

Over the festive period we’ll be debating the big moment of 2009 and we want your input.

    My sporting moment of 2009? My son learning to dance to the electric slide in physical education class.

    I normally pay no attention to sports but seeing Federline return a winning shot between his legs with his back turned was pretty cool.

    One for me? When I realized that all of my hard work paid off. And I lost 99 lbs. in 2 years.

    My unsporting moment is the soccer match fixing recently uncovered, combined with referees making wrong decissions during the games.
    My sporting moment is the winner who has won free from the taking of drugs.

    RE “” we’ll be debating the big moment of 2009 “”

    ————– Easy for me. Manny Pacquiao TKO Rd 12 over Miguel Cotto, branding Manny as the top sportman of the first decade of the new millennium.

    It was both a technical masterclass application of a stellar game plan as well as a beatdown for the ages of one of the best fighters of this era in his prime.

    He turned pro at age 16 as a starving junior flyweight and has risen through !!! 9 divisions !!! as one of the best and most exciting boxers ever. He’s an icon in Asia, yet made his biggest mark in the states where now he often tops google searches.

    He’s running for election in the Philippines this year and will probably get elected, meaning next year is his last year in boxing.A huge heart and as humble, quiet, self effacing hero as can be found. He’ll retire on top, wealthy beyond belief ready to be of service to his people.

    Is this “sports” something that should be discussed in WHYS???
    I dont think so.
    Better bring it up in the sports section and leave WHYS for the important discussions.

    Ireland winning the RBS 6 Nations for the first time in 24 years and the Grand Slam for the first time in 61 years. Made me so proud to be Irish.

    The strange thing that how many world records were broken in the swimming competitions. And they said that it was due to some new swimming suits?

    My sporting moment of 2009:

    That’s me in the yellow helmet. This video was taken about a month ago. Things go wrong at about 1:20, because the guy behind me docked too early, throwing me off balance, and I couldn’t recover in time. It was still a lot of tun though.

    I very well remember my sporting moment when i scored 22 runs in one over(4,6,6,0,6,0) back in 1977 as a young man.I usded to say even Viv Richards never scord 22 runs in one over with 3 sixers,but with 4 fours and a six i think.
    To my surprise almost 6 years ago i think i came across and what a big man he is not just in size,i am sure he would have given Joe Fraizer hiding had he been a boxer but oblighed for a photo with me,I cherish this photo indeed.
