    Multi-Sport Quiz Thread

    Do we have a quiz thread in here?
    Is there enough traffic in here to sustain one?

    I dont know. Anyway, tough answers that require thought and need questions and clues.

    Ill give it a go first.

    Football
    Which teenage phenom had his career destroyed by injury before reaching 18 yet it may have saved his life?
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

    Vaguely remember Kanu having an op for an undetected heart condition whilst he was at Ajax, but think he was older than 18 &, obviously, it didn't destroy his career.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    This was mentioned on TV by a commentator or a panelist or something the other day, though infuriatingly I can't for the life of me recall who it was...

    Have absolutely no idea, but will take a stab and say Gascoigne?

    EDIT: Haha, misread that question (didn't see the "career destroyed" bit). Disregard the above.

    Its a tough question. Though the guy is very famous he isnt close to as famous as he should be.

    He was dubbed the "English Pele"

    Actually, no. Though another clue could be that he was very close friends with one of the early black players in English football and during his injury he was in showbiz with them. However, I dont think that will help many people.

    Long shot, Wilf McGuinness? Dunno about teenage star, but bad leg break ended his career (left him needing 2 crutches to walk in later life, remember him leading a utd youth side against Trafford about 10 years ago). Ended his career, but kept him off the plane to Belgrade that didnt make it back from Munich.

    This may even further murky the water. The name is wrong but the reason for avoiding potential death is correct. Ie avoided the air disaster
