To put this in context. Foreman was 45, had lost his last fight against Tommy Morrison. Moorer had taken it as a big money low risk fight. George had pulled his punches early knowing if he threw big punches early Moore was too quick. Eventually Moorer believed that he could be the first man to stop Foreman since Ali and his ego lead to him standing in front of George believing he'd taken George's best

Remember getting up on the Sunday expecting England to quickly mop up the last two wickets to level the series....Then sitting there a couple of hours later just thinking “they’ve fucking blown this” .and with it the Ashes

And they probably would have done if DRS was knocking about then

 


The greatest long jump competition ever at the 1991 World championships 

 

First Carl Lewis breaks Bob Beamon’s long standing world record then minutes later Mike Powell wipes the smug smile off Lewis face by going past that jump and sets a world record of 8.95m that still stands to this day

"Top he wants... and he gets it! Barneveld is the champion of the world..."

 

 

I don't think any game of darts will ever come close, for me, to the drama of that final.

 

3-0 down to the greatest player ever and pings a 170 to start the fightback. Sid Wadell and John Gwynne's on comms was just pure darting gold too.

Fuckin' A! 

 

You're right about the commentary too. Many of these moments have commentary tracks that are indelibly etched in the memory.

 

@Remmie's Linford Christie post, for example. I remember being at my Grandma's 60th birthday party that night and sprinting around the garden totally exhilarated after the race. David Coleman's "and Christie comes storming through... IT'S LINFORD CHRISTIE!" was ace.

It's great when you hear the crowd roaring them home too, great finish that.

Jo Pavey winning 10k gold at the 2014 European Championships, aged 40, less than a year after giving birth. 

 

Just a truly incredible achievement.

Waddell was undoubtedly a master of commentary. I couldn't stick him at first but then you realise just how good he actually was and he brings the game to life. His passion and energy for darts will never be replicated or bettered.

 

The only one I like on darts comms now is Wayne Mardle as he's played the game, coaches the game and loves the game. Just needs to tone it down a notch with the shouting though.

It certainly is.

My Mum cooked Christmas dinner for 20 people the day before giving birth to me.

Brilliant, we bunked in that day as it was only up the ralla from ours.

Didn't really know as we stood by Bechers what horses where jumping it, knew Red Rums colours, but others I know now such as the great Lescargot and names like Spanish Steps, good memories.
