A very good article and list there.

I also would add the football war between El Salvador and Honduras in 1969, which broke out after their extremely bitter and violent series of World Cup qualification matches against each other in Tegucigalpa, San Salvador and Mexico City.

1914 Christmas Day

Absolute magic. Days like that make you believe in humanity.

1954, Bern was an homage to doping.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Another contender is the death match in Kiev in 1942, with FC Start (made of former players from Dynamo and Lokomotiv Kiev who had become bakers) beating Flakelf (made up of pilots from the German Luftwaffe) 5-3. FC Start had beaten them 5-1 a few days earlier and Flakelf demanded a re-match.

There have been many different accounts of the fate of the FC Start members after their victory. The common one is that after they won another match the following week, they were arrested by the Gestapo, tortured and sent to labour camps.
