World of Sport

As the title suggests please pop a few sports related pics in here.

No particular alphabetical order or connection to previous pic rules other than the normal keep it clean! You might put a comment in as to why you're selecting the pic - maybe you were at the event or maybe it's something that happened in sport today etc etc

I'll start things off with my favourite ever player

Kenny Dalglish

I was behind the goals about 20m to the right when this picture was taken. Always loved Zidane. Cherry on the cake when he scored twice in this match.

Bringing it local ....

A class act, both on and off the pitch.

John Stephen Akwari, who ran the marathon in the Mexico 68 olympics and kept going despite dislocating his knee just before the half-way point, finishing more than an hour behing the winner.

"My country didn't send me 5000 miles to start the race, my country sent me 5000 miles to finish it."

Nagano Olympics: event winner Bjorn Daehle, one of the most successful and celebrated winter Olympians of all time, waits at the finish line to congratulate Philip Boit, who was finishing last. Boit was Kenya's first every entry to a winter Olympic event. Daehle insisted that the medal ceremony be put back until Boit had finished.

On his way to winning gold at the 1983 World Championships. 150 meters out and Coughlin knew he had the title in the bag.

The great Jesse Owens shat all over Aryan supremacists during the 1936 Olympics in Germany. He refused to give the Nazi salute and went onto win 4 gold, seriously píssing off a certain Mr. Hitler.

And also one of the last photos of Jigoro Kano, the man who developed Judo from traditional Japanese Jiu Jitsu. He's the small oriental man in the middle.

Michael Schumacher -1991 Belgian Grand Prix.

He took part in his first Grand Prix driving for the Jordan team. It was also the first time he raced at Spa-Francorchamps, so he went around the circuit on a bicycle to get familiar with the track layout.

On Saturday, he qualified 7th which was sensational. Unfortunately he retired on the first lap of the race.



In the following year and at the same circuit driving for Benetton, he won the race and it was his first win in F1.
