    CW Sporting Moment Of 2007

    (I'm bored)

    We have already had album and song of the year thread...but after all this is a sports forum so now its time for Sports Moment Of 2007.

    So what did it for you?

    Australia Cricket World Cup Win?
    India T20 World Cup Win?
    South Africa RWC Win?
    Frankie Dettori finally winning the derby?

    or even underdog stories such as

    Ireland at the Cricket World Cup?
    Argentina & England at the RWC?

    Nominate your moments and we can put it to a ballot to decide CW's Sport Moment of 2007

    Bangladesh beating India and South Africa at the WC.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Ireland beating Pakistan in the world cup was a big moment, no doubt. The highlight of a fairly mediocre tournament.

    It's been pretty slim pickings this year for an English sports fan, but our wins over Australia and France in the quarter and semi-finals of the union WC must be up there. Great Britain's first test series win over New Zealand in 14 years in the league too.

    Less parochially Barry Bonds beating the Major League baseball home-run record and Scotland winning in France during the qualifying for Euro 2008 are also worthy of mention.

    An entirely personal list.

    1st: 12:49.88, Sven Kramer, Heerenveen, 11 February 2007. Was nearly asleep in the sofa with fever watching this bloke setting a world record on lowland ice. Phenomenal.
    2nd: Bodø/Glimt 3-2 Odd Grenland. Promotion to the Premier League after two years in the wilderness, despite a horrible autumn with only limelight Hamoud's ultimately fruitless bicycle kick vs Molde. Then winter comes and we win a play-off pretty much everyone thought we'd lose.
    3rd: Petter Northug makes mincemeat of the others in the world ski championships relay to win gold for Norway (http://youtube.com/watch?v=pVAuBJX0nAA)
    4th: Norway 2-2 Greece, Ullevaal. Poor result, but a fantastic game of football. Riise & Gamst combining for a stunning goal. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHaL9YSXtbY)
    5th: Ireland beating Pakistan
    6th: Sven Kramer, 6:03.32, Calgary, November 2007 - the bloke's just been beaten for the first time in ages and comes back to lower the WR by 3.5 seconds. Fair play. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0ne-764aZY. Seven-minute long video, mind.)
    7th: Basketball player Donald Thomas wins the world high jump gold in Osaka. Victory of a natural talent. (Mind, if he works on his technique, he'll leap 2.43 soon.)
    8th: Ole Einar Bjørndalen winning two golds at the world biathlon championships, taking his tally to nine.
    9th: Tyson Gay at the world athletics champs. Three golds.
    10th:Norway 21-20 Russia, women's world handball championship group stage. The game I forgot to watch, turned on the radio, Norway had turned 7-9 to 16-10. Nearly choked but kept their nerve at the end. Of course, the Russians were too good in the final.

    No England cricket because they really were that bad.

    Essendon's comeback win vs WC the week after the 1 pt win vs Sydney and Big Scotty Lucas kicking 7 goals in Hird's last game whilst being tripped and robbed of an 8th and the match winning goal.

    A Norwegian following AFL?

    Anyway some more, Cadel Evans finishing second in the Tour de France, and he is a clean skin as well.

    Come on, the guy has about as much credibility as John Bracewell when speaking to the media. I mean he has been investigated in the BALCO scandal since 2003, he lied when under oath about his alleged use of steriods.

    England vs Australia and France vs Australia have to be up there for mine, along with France-Scotland and Scotland-France. (One of those might've been in 06, mind).

    And Romania qualifying for Euro 2008 with no home nations qualifying lets me be a bit of a ****
    Or something.

    From my personal point of view there really isn't one...from a neutral view, Australia winning the Cricket World Cup (again).

    From an anti-England view, two words, Euro 2008.

    USA Grand Prix, the Alonso attempt on Hamilton at the bottom of the straight. Was pretty much the point where Hamilton irked Alonso to the point where he self-destructed for the rest of the season.
