Every year seems to have defining moments in sports history linked to it, and 2009 was no different. It only feels like yesterday that we were heralding the start of '09, and now here we are reviewing it.
My look back at 2008 proved very popular last year, winning article of the day, and hopefully this one can reach a similar level of success. There is certainly no shortage of material to write on after another action packed year.
In this slideshow, you will see 25 great moments from 12 different sports from all around the globe, each with their own unique place in history. There have been blissful highs, tragic lows, and more scandals than you could shake a stick at, all of which make doing a review on the year all the better!
The 25 slides will be arranged in chronological order with the final slide being a list of the 10 best moments of this year.
So sit back, relax, and reminisce about the greatest sporting moments of 2009!
