The first women’s World Cup tournament was hosted rather late, in 1991. Two tournaments later and the U.S. Women’s National team won their first World Cup putting American women’s soccer on the map for many years to come.
Here we see Brandi Chastain taking off her shirt with excitement after scoring a penalty kick that would end up winning the team their final game against China.
The Accomplishment of a Lifetime
Like baseball, the NHL hockey season lasts very long. By the time your team reaches an opportunity to win the Stanly Cup Championship, injuries are plenty, and emotions run high.
You can see here Bobby Orr's excitement when he scored a game-winning overtime goal winning the 1970 Stanley Cup for the Boston Bruins. He was so excited that he planted his face on the ice.
A.I. at It Again
Allen Iverson, known as "A.I." was one of the best point guards in NBA history, going against the greats like Jason Kid, and Kobe Bryant.
He was also a very controversial basketball player, usually sporting on-court antics, and known for being the first player in the NBA to show off a body full of tattoos. Here he is seen trash-talking L.A. Lakers player Tyron Lue during Game one of the NBA finals in 2001.
Spring Time Baby!
If you love baseball, then you know all about spring training. It is the big off-season holiday in which fans come together along with their teams and travel to West Palm Beach, Florida, to watch them train before the season starts.
In this photo, Hank Aron is accosted from the top by adoring fans as he makes his way to the diamond. He was just one home run short of tying Babe Ruth for the career home run record.
Back in Time
Every year, world records get broken in all kinds of sports. However, those world records had to start somewhere, and with every new record, there are shocked fans who are in disbelief at the accomplishment.
Here we see Roger Bannister on a May 6th, 1954 Mile run. It earned him the title of the first person to run it in under 4 minutes in history at 3 minutes and 59 seconds. Today the record is held by Hicham El Geurrouj at 3:43 seconds.
