    Most disgraceful sporting performances.....

    A few that spring to mind are.............


    Mary Dekker - US 1500 metre runner 1984 LA olympics after the Zola Budd incident - Her pathetic performance of crying for about 6 months after the race was one of the worst i've seen.

    Mike Tyson - Ear eating incident - say no more

    Greg/Trevor Chappell - and their attempt to play lawn bowls on a cricket field

    Richard Loe - NZ rugby player and his horrible eye-gauge of Greg Cooper in the early 90s

    Johan le Roux - South african who bit Sean Fitzpatricks ear

    *Waits for an Aussie to say "Bodyline." They're so predictable*

    Collingwood in the 2003 AFL Grand Final, when the Brisbane Lions had to go through 18 vials of pain killers to get their players onto the ground, and they still spanked Collingwood by 10 goals, after the Pies beat the Lions three weeks earlier. And I loved every minute of it

    Jean VanDeVelve or whatever it is, with his choke in the British Open. And Greg Norman when Faldo won the Masters.

    Bodyline certainly qualifies, for the same reason the underarm ball incident does.Various sporting captain tantrums do too, Richie Richardson's in 1995 after losing to Australia was a classic.

    R. Connor getting run out for a diamond in Super International Cricket. Was a horrible call by Haliday - I mean, if Connor can't make it then no-one could have.

    Except maybe G. Allen.

    People still say that, but i think the worst effort was the bowling performance by Trinh against Pakistan in '95, got hit for 36 off one over by G. Asif.

    That American gymnast that ran into the pummel horse, can't quite remember his name. Billy Birmingham did a bit about him
