I love sports, almost all of them. It never bores me, watching any sport. I embrace excitement, joy, thrill, competition, battle, heat and whatever element you come across by engaging or watching a sport. Above all I, as a sports fan, cherish and remember moments of sporting brilliances.

I remember Arjuna Ranatunga’s glide for four to win the Wills Cricket World Cup in 1996 against Australia for Sri Lanka at Gadaffi Staduim, Lahore. I remember Zinedine Zidane’s two headers in 1998 FIFA World Cup Finals against Brazil for France at Stade de France, Paris. I remember Jonny Wilkinson’s drop goal with the wrong foot, 30 seconds before the end of the extra time, to win the Rugby World Cup in 2003 against Australia for England at Telstra Stadium, Sydney. I remember Usain Bolt casually jogging the last 10 meters to win the 100 meters final in Olympics in 2008 at Bird’s Nest in Beijing, China.

Following are five things I would like to focus on from the series.
