Occasionally in the world of sports one sees something that is a pure expression of will, beauty, creativity, determination or courage, or is so unexpected as to defy belief in what one is seeing. These moments can be so emotionally gripping that even as a spectator we get goose pimples, tight throats and welling eyes. In no particular order here are some of those from my lifetime.

Gabrielle Andersen Scheiss-The inaugural women's Olympic Marathon was held in the Los Angeles heat in 1984. Joanie Benoit shocked us and won the race handily. But there was heart stopping finish for 37th place. A Swiss runner was in obvious distress as she entered the Coliseum where she had to run a lap to finish. If anyone touched her she was DQ'd. Sheiss stumbled, lumbered, staggered, waddled, ranged all over the track and stopped more than once. That lap seemed to take her an hour. My Dad and I were screaming, him for her to get helped, me for her to finish. Somehow she made it. Pure determination.

None of it would have been possible had it not been for Noel Picard putting his stick between Orr's skates.I used to have that famous poster.

The Scheiss one reminds me of Derek Redmond:
