Relive soaring triumphs and agonising defeats in the words of sporting legends.

Missing sport? You’re not alone. While some of us are filling the void with Nicaragua’s Primera Liga football, or round-the-house obstacle-course time trials, it’s just not quite the same as a brimming Australian winter sports calendar. And it was supposed to be an Olympic year! Rather than lamenting what could have been, it’s a great time to pause, reflect and revisit some of sport’s greatest moments, characters and scandals. Here are some no-holds-barred sporting memoirs to take you there.
