Arthur Ashe not only won countless tennis championships like Wimbledon, The US Open, and the Australian Open but was a huge activist for civil rights and soon after for HIV/AIDS.
ARTHUR ASHE (1993) for responding the way he did, when asked why of all people, God'd selected Ashe to suffer from AIDS which took his life, for saying “The world over, 50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals. When I was holding a cup I never asked GOD ‘Why me?’. And today in pain I shall not ask GOD ‘Why me?’ “

USA hockey team defeated the USSR in the 1980 olympic games. Today, it is known as "Miracle on Ice."
One of the greatest achievements in the history of American sports~ I remember jumping up & down in our living room as we watched the game on TV. The Miracle on Ice 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid, NY. US vs The Soviet Union~ US won the GOLD!!! Feels like just yesterday ;)
1980 Winter Olympics (Lake Placid, NY). "Miracle on Ice" was one of the most memorable sports moments of the 20th century.
"Miracle On Ice." February 22, 1980. Lake Placid, New York, USA. Team USA men's ice hockey defeats the Soviet Union, who were considered to be the best hockey team in the world. Team USA went on to win the gold medal over Finland for the first time since 1960. Sports Illustrated named the "Miracle on Ice" the Top Sports Moment of the 20th Century.
Miracle on Ice -1980 Lake Pacid Olympics USA vs USSR. 20 college players beating an undefeated professional Russsian olympic hockey team truly is, in a sporting sense, a miracle.
Feb. 22, 1980. In a stunning upset, now known as the Miracle on Ice, the U.S. Olympic hockey team defeats the Soviets at Lake Placid, NY, 4-3. (The U.S. went on to win the gold medal.)
Miracle on Ice from the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. Definitely the greatest and most inspiring moment in sports history<3
The "Miracle on Ice" is the name in American popular culture for a medal-round men's ice hockey game during the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, New York, on Friday, February 22. The United States team, made up of amateur and collegiate players and led by coach Herb Brooks, defeated the Soviet team, who had won nearly every world championship and Olympic tournament since 1954. Epicness in sports history.
Sports Illustrated did an article about the 1980 Olympic hockey team that won gold. They described how Herb Brooks coached the team to victory. They also did a highlight of the goals in order. The Soviets scored first halfway through the first period to break the ice, and after that, it was back and forth until the best goalie in the world was pulled with a two-two tie after the first. The Russians were the only ones to score in the second period, but the US scored two in the third to win.
Michael Johnson - Receiving more column inches than the man, were Johnson's gold Nikes. He won the 400m with ease, by a full second, but it was the later 200m which the crowds & media were relishing. In the US trials, Johnson had beaten Pietro Mennea's 17 year old record. The gun fired and he tore from the blocks, never faltering. Johnson decimated the field, by a previously unimaginable distance. Nobody questioned those golden spikes when 19.32 flashed up. 1996/Atlanta
