Top 5 Sporting Events

Here is my list of the top 5 sporting events in 2005. Sorry, for being so late, but i din't have time to type this.....chkout...and post ur valuable comments

1. England regaining the ASHES
Better known as 'Freddie' Flintoff's ashes. Barring the first test, every other test was a fight to the finish & a treat to watch. The emergence of Kevin Pietersen as a big hitter was another notable happening. This ashes confirmed that test cricket can be made more exciting than One day Internationals.

2. Liverpool's Champions league Victory
Liverpool won its 5th Champions league trophy at Istambul. The return of the 'Red Devils' to top form was one of the most exciting happenings in the world of soccer last year.

3. Sania Mania
Sania truly changed the way Indians look at tennis. She, with her thrilling performances, singlehandedlybrought the whole of India in front of the TV sets to watch tennis rather than cricket. She reached the 3rd round at Australian & 4th round in US open. She also bagged her maiden WTA crown at Hyderabad & completed a stunning upset of 6th ranked kuzenestova. Her attitude & the bold statements on her T-shirt made her the darling of the US &Wimbledon crwods.

4. vrrrroooom....Alonso
In F1 racing, Alonso ended the rein of Schumi(but still am a Schumi fan) at the top. His clinical performances and the sheer pace and reliability of the Renaults coupled with an inept Ferrari engine enabled him to win a number of races. But, a Schumi fan here is hoping for a rocking comeback from the real king of F1 in 2006.

5. Lance Armstrong's last lap
Armstrong won his 7th consecutive tour de France and announced retirement from cycling. A man who conquered the odds and inspired millions of cancer patients bid farewell to sport. He'll always be remembered as the embodiment of the triumph of human spirit.

PS- Faced with a problem of plenty, I had to leave out some of the most glorious chapters in sports from the above list. Those events worthy of being in this list are Roger Federer's genial mastery of Tennis, US open and Wimbledon. I'll dedicate a post fully for the King of tennis later. Then Sachin's 35th century, Lara becoming top run getter in tests, Dhoni's mammoth knock of 183 not out, Shane Warne's 600th wicket, the thrilling run of chelsea(I HATE CHELSEA...Arsenal rulzzz) in EPL etc...

with love, your crusader Praveen
