Laura’s Top 3 Favourite Sporting Memories
- WimbleDONE! June, 2013
Andy Murray winning Wimbledon in 2013 beating Novak Djokovic in the final to become the first Brit to win the men’s title for 77 years.
- Ryder Cup: The Miracle at Medinah, September 2012
One of the greatest comebacks in the history is sport. Europe were 10-6 down heading into the final day singles but somehow overturned this seemingly insurmountable deficit to prevail over the USA 14.5 to 13.5 at Medinah Country Club, Illinois.
- London Olympics, Bolt Clean sweep, August 2012
The London 2012 Olympics were a resounding success but the highlight for Laura was Usain Bolt winning the 100m, smashing his own Olympic record before going on to win the 200m to become the first man to retain both Olympic sprint titles.
Laura’s Top 3 Worst Sporting Memories
- Sergio Garcia losing The Open to Padraig Harrington at Carnoustie in 2007
The Spaniard lost to Irishman Harrington in a play-off after carding a final round 73 to Harrington’s 67. Garcia is still seeking his first Major title.
- Nick Faldo’s Ryder Cup disaster at Valhalla in 2008
Nick Faldo was one of our greatest ever players. That there’s no doubt but when it comes to Ryder Cup captaincy, he didn’t cut it. Europe have won five out the last six Ryder Cups but on this occasion, the USA were too strong. To this day, American Boo Weekley riding his golf club like a horse at that Ryder Cup still irks Laura!
- Wimbledon 2012. Roger Federer beats Andy Murray
The tears. The roof. Killer.
