Greatest 2016 Sporting Highlights

The major sporting event of 2016 was the Olympic Games in Rio. Out of those Games there were two significant highlights, Usain Bolt completing the triple triple - the 100m/200m/4x100m relay from three consecutive Olympics. The other athlete of the Games was Michael Phelps, who came out of retirement to add another six medals to his record tally.

Leicester City, 1000-1 long shots at the start of the season, completed the most improbable sporting fairy-tale in living memory, winning the English Premier League Premiership. In another drought breaking win, the Chicago Cubs defeated the Indians in seven games to win their first World Series in 108 years. Finally, NBA star Kobe Bryant capped off a stellar career, scoring 60 points in his final game.
