This list is by no means complete, but limitations of time and space mean that some topics are better left for another day. The people in the pictures below have had their moments under the spotlight. Who are they and what did they do (answers this time tomorrow)?
Answers (clockwise from left): Tonya Harding – covered up an assault on a rival skater organized by her ex-husband; John Daly – frequent public drunkeness; Zinedine Yazid Zidane – headbutted Italian soccer player; Chicago White Sox – threw a world series; Ben Johnson – set the world 100m sprint record (on steroids); Wessel Johannes “Hansie” Cronje – match fixing (cricket).
We tried to reflect the international nature of our site with the scope of this post. This was a team production and reflects the many and varied interests of not just myself, but also JeffG from We Interrupt Global Reports and Vic da Silva. In general, our sources for these documents have long since been forgotten, however, where appropriate, we provided a source link to the Wikipedia entries for either the athletes, or the incidents. Wikipedia proved invaluable for establishing the dates and finer details of each of the events.
