Greatest sports achievements ever

Postby css75 » Thu Apr 25, 2019 2:40 pm

What are the greatest achievements is sports history? This can be team or individual.

I will leadoff with a couple.

1980 Miracle on Ice. This has to be near the top of all lists. An amateur US hockey team beating the USSR and going on to win the gold.

1969 Mets, out of nowhere they come to win the World Series

Bob Beamon 29 foot leap in the 1968 Olympics.

The Seattle Mariners finished with a 116–46 (.716) in 2001
Then lost to the Yankees in the playoffs
and didn't even belong on the same field - just got destroyed

:ohno:

The Patriots down 28-3 with 2:12 left in the 3rd quarter
and coming back to win the game scoring 32 unanswered points

:shock:
