Greatest 2019 Sporting Highlights

There were many highlights in the sporting world for 2019 (see our 2019 year in review for a full rundown). Here are our top five sporting highlights. Take the poll and let us know your favorite.

Who said cricket was boring. The final of the Cricket World Cup was won by England in a nail-biter in possibly the greatest one-day cricket game ever. The scores were tied after full time, then in the tie-breaking super-over, the scores were equal again. England was awarded the championship on count-back.

There was high drama at the 2019 Kentucky Derby. Maximum Security led all the way, only to become the first winner disqualified for interference in the race's 145-year history. After a long wait, long-shot Country House was declared the winner. Country House paid 65-1, the second-highest odds for a winner in Derby history.

Team USA saw its 58-game international tournament winning streak come to an end at the FIBA Basketball World Cup. Team USA's last loss with NBA players on its roster came against Greece in the semifinals of the 2006 world championships.

Tiger Woods first major title in 11 years, winning the Masters for the fifth time. It was one of sport's greatest-all-time comebacks to end an 11-year major title drought, having endured and overcome controversy then crippling injuries.

At the Women's World Cup, the USA defended their title with a 2–0 victory over the Netherlands in the final.

Here are these five highlights listed in a poll, which one do you think is the greatest highlight?
