Chris’s Top 3 Favourite Sporting Memories

  1. The British & Irish Lions series victory over South Africa in 1997
    Written off by the whole of South Africa, The Lions won the three-match series with a game to spare, Jeremy Guscott’s late drop goal in the Second Test sealing a famous win.
  2. Ryder Cup: The Miracle at Medinah, September 2012
    Straight in at number two for Chris, the astonishing Ryder Cup victory for Europe in 2012. Ian Poulter was the main man that year winning a vital point on Day 2 after Europe looked down and out at 10-4 behind. Europe were still 10-6 down heading into the final day singles but somehow overturned this seemingly insurmountable deficit to prevail.
  3. Andy Murray winning Wimbledon 2013
    After tears of despair 12 months before it was tears of joy this time around as Murray defeated Novak Djokovic in straight sets to seal his place in British sporting history.

  Chris’s Top 3 Worst Sporting Memories

  1. Scotland losing against Australia in the RWC 2015 quarter-final
    Classic Scotland. On the cusp of one of their greatest ever results but thanks to a very dodgy referring decision coupled with a very dodgy line-out throw, Australia prevailed kicking a late, late penalty to break Scottish hearts.
  2. Eric Cantona fly-kicking a fan in 1995
    Not many sports fans will forget this. After Manchester United star Eric Cantona was sent-off at Crystal Palace during a league match, he responded to some verbals from a Palace fan by kung-fu kicking him. The Frenchman was banned for nine months and served a short prison term.
  3. Mike Tyson biting Evander Holyfield, 1997
    Still resonates as one of sport’s most extraordinary moments. Fighting for the World Heavyweight title, Mike Tyson bit fellow American Evander Holyfield, not once, but twice, in the ear resulting in his disqualification and the loss of his boxing licence. The first bite saw Holyfield lose a one-inch piece of cartilage from his right ear. Ouch!
