Five great sporting comebacks

first_imgLos Angeles, United States | AFP |  Tiger Woods crowned his comeback from a near two-year injury layoff on Sunday by claiming victory in the Masters at Augusta National, winning his 15th career major nearly 11 years after his last triumph, at the 2008 US Open.Here AFP looks back at five other athletes who made successful comebacks from injury or adversity:– Greg LeMond –The US cycling legend came within 20 minutes of bleeding to death after a hunting accident in California in 1987.The then-reigning Tour de France champion was hit by more than 60 pellets after being shot by his uncle during a wild turkey hunt. He was airlifted to hospital and lost an estimated 65 percent of his blood volume.Injuries from the accident forced him to miss the next two editions of the Tour de France, but he returned in 1989 to win the racing showpiece by eight seconds after a thrilling duel with Laurent Fignon.– Niki Lauda –Austrian driver Lauda appeared to be cruising to a second Formula One World Championship title in 1976 when disaster struck at the German Grand Prix in Nuerburgring.Lauda’s Ferrari swerved off the course and struck an embankment, before exploding in flames. Lauda was trapped in the wreckage and suffered severe burns before being pulled to safety.Incredibly, he returned to racing 43 days later at the Italian Grand Prix. He would go on to win two more drivers championships before retiring.– George Foreman –US heavyweight Foreman had faded into obscurity after his stunning defeat to Muhammad Ali in the ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ in 1974, fighting six more times before retiring in 1977 after a defeat to Jimmy Young.But in 1987 he confounded the boxing world by returning to the ring at the age of 40, fighting in a series of low-key bouts at a time when Mike Tyson ruled the division. He failed with his first attempt to regain a world title when he was beaten by Evander Holyfield on points in 1991.However three years later Foreman was on top of the world, defeating Michael Moorer by knockout to claim the title 20 years after he had last held it. At 45 he was the oldest ever heavyweight world champion.– Monica Seles –Monica Seles looked poised to rule women’s tennis in the early 1990s, becoming the youngest woman to reach the world number one ranking in 1991 before winning three out of four grand slam singles titles in 1992 with victories at the Australian, French and US Open.In 1993 she again looked set to dominate, opening the year by winning the Australian Open with a defeat of German rival Steffi Graf.In April, however, Seles was stabbed by a deranged spectator while playing at a tournament in Hamburg.Although she soon recovered from her injuries, Seles would not play for two more years. She returned in 1995, and the following year she won her 10th and last grand slam singles title with victory at the Australian Open.– Muhammad Ali –After refusing to be inducted into the US army in 1966, world heavyweight champion Ali was effectively banned from boxing for three years between 1967 and 1970 as various sanctioning bodies across the United States refused to grant him a license.The ban meant Ali missed some of the peak years of his career before he was eventually allowed to return to the ring.He attempted to regain his title in 1971’s ‘Fight of the Century’ against Joe Frazier but suffered the first defeat of his career after losing by unanimous decision.In 1974, Ali was given no chance as he attempted to regain his title against George Foreman in the ‘Rumble of the Jungle’.But the then-32-year-old Ali pulled off one of the great upsets by confounding Foreman with his ‘rope-a-dope’ tactics before scoring an eighth round knockout.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Powered by Firework Pakistan cricket team started off their T20 series against Bangladesh with a swift win in the first match yesterday at the Gaddafi Stadium, and the squad’s veteran run machine Shoaib Malik showcased all the vibrancy on the pitch with a stormy knock of 58. While getting praise from supporters for being the senior in form, the batsman faced a trick question regarding the position of his junior Misbah-ul-Haq as the head coach of the team. But, the player had the perfect response.Advertisement Image Courtesy: PCB/ESPNcricinfoMisbah-ul-Haq, the former skipper hung his boots from limited overs cricket in 2015, and from Test cricket in the next year. The 45 year old took charge of the Pakistani squad in September 2019 along with the role of chief selector.Following the match yesterday, Shoaib Malik was present in the post match interview. Renowned for his grooming of his juniors, the media threw him a question about his boss, questioning his seniority to Misbah, trying to throw him into a tizzy.Advertisement “Shoaib, you spoke about grooming youngsters in the team, which is a responsibility of a senior player. So, you are even more senior than your coach (Misbah-ul-Haq), will you groom him as well?” the interviewer asked.However, the 37 year old had the perfect response to the tricky query.Advertisement He responded: “There is no one in the world who can say that he has learnt everything. Sachin Tendulkar couldn’t say that or other people couldn’t say that they have learnt anything.”Malik, who debuted for the team in the West Indies ODI series 1999, is two years senior to Misbah, made his international debut in 2001 against New Zealand in Test cricket. While his junior has gone through retirement and taking charge of the team, the former captain mentions that learning is a never ending procedure.He continued: “Learning process never ends. Lot of cricketers and coaches have come and gone, a lot happened but the learning process never stopped.”Winning the toss and deciding to Bat first, Bangladesh put up a score of 141 in the first innings. However, it was the veteran Malik’s stunning 58-off-45, with five fours that was a major factor behing the win.“We go after people very quickly. We want overnight results, which doesn’t happen. We need to show some patience and if someone has got a chance then we must wait a little. I understand, you guys want some masala, everyone wants masala but we need to think about the country as well sometimes,” Malik concluded.Also read-Shoaib Malik posts christmas tweet with a slight dig on India – and gets trolled by Twitterati!Netizens troll Sarfaraz Ahmed after Misbah-ul-Haq imposes strict rules on diet Advertisementlast_img read more
