I have quite a few moments on my mind:

Jan Ullrich winning "Le Tour"

Michael Groß winning all his swimming titles (anyone remember the man at the mic screaming "Flieg, Albatros, Flieg!"?)

World Cup Final 1990

Frank Busemann winning Decathlon silver at 1996 Olympics

German ski jumping team winning gold in 1994 and 2002 Olympics

last year's Biathlon world championships, men's relay, awesome!!!

me winning 200m Dolphin for my school in regional swimming championships in 1993 & 94 ( just my great personal moment )

and of course, Boris Becker's first Wimbledon title in 1985, that's when I wanted to learn tennis myself

Mine come from the Vancouver Olympics.

Joannie Rochette. Favorite to medal, home Olympics so the pressure is on.

Two days before her competition starts, he mom passed away just after she arrived in Vancouver. With a whole nation behind her, she did this 2 days later and eventually won bronze:



Again, figure skating, ice dance, Virtue-Moir, Gold. Expected to medal (they had won silver and bronze the last 2 WC), but they could get the gold. And they did. And it was pure magic.




Special mention:

Silken Laumann Single Sculls, bronze medal, Barcelona Olympics. Her leg was destroyed mid-May and she needed 5 operations and weeks in the hospital.

4x100 relay Gold medal Canada at the Atlanta Games.
