The A-Z of 2015 : Top Sporting Moments

As another year passes by, the world of sports did not shy away from providing us with some spectacular events, stats and scandals. Players rose up to the occasions, countries were made proud and fans were given the treat of their lives. It’s astounding how a year can encompass of such diverse stories and incidents that teach us so much and shape our thoughts and opinions.

This year was an eventful one to say the least. Whether it was Yasir Shah’s doping that got us surprised or Jamie Vardy’s record breaking streak that made news, it all happened this year. From the good, bad and the ugly, we saw it all.

Although, it’s not possible to cover ALL of them at one go; here’s our attempt to wrap up the year with The Top Sporting Moments of 2015, alphabetically.

A – Australia National Cricket Team

Perhaps one of the most successful national teams of all, the Australia National Cricket Team has had one fantastic year. The 2015 Cricket World Cup was won by Australia as they defeated New Zealand by 7 wickets and clinched their 5th World Cup win, 3 more than anybody else. The standout performances belong to paceman Mitchell Starc and batsman and captain, Steven Smith, the latter winning the ICC Cricketer of the Year Award in December.

But like they say, all good things come to a halt, Australia went on to lose the Ashes series to England, despite being the favourites to win the series.

B – Barcelona Football Club

Arguably one of the best football clubs in Europe in the past decade – Barcelona have had one of their best ever years. After winning the treble last year, Luis Enrique’s men have dominated the La Liga this time around as well.

Barcelona owe most of their success to their brilliant attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, who have racked up a staggering 122 goals combined, the highest ever for an attacking trio in Spanish club football history.

Barcelona also won the FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup, only proving how strong they have become over the years. In 2015, Lionel Messi also won the UEFA Best Player in Europe Award for best player.
