This past year has produced a number of exceptional sporting moments. While some may have brought much joy to English fans, there were a few disappointing results that will be difficult to forget.
Here are some of our favourite 2019 sporting moments.

Rugby World Cup hosted in Japan
This one may have left a bitter taste, but it was without a doubt one of the most exciting Rugby World Cups in history. From some of the big hitters getting knocked out early, to the brave Japanese side making it all the way to the quarter finals without losing match. This one will be difficult to forget, for a number of reasons.
Tiger wins the masters for the 5th time
Of all his 14 major wins, Woods has been always struggled with the Masters Series. This was possibly his most emotional win, where he was presented with his fifth green jacket. It was wonderful to see such a special comeback from one of golf’s greatest legends.
Hamilton wins his 6th Formula 1 Championship for Mercedes

Eliud Kipchoge goes sub 2 hours for a marathon.
This ground-breaking achievement had the sporting world stunned. The Kenyan long-distance runner crossed the finish line in 1:59:40 in Vienna, making this the fastest marathon finish in history.
The final was another tightly contested affair, but one of the biggest highlights was Cori Gauff who made a name for herself becoming the youngest player in history to advance to round 16 where she then beat her idol, Venus Williams. Sports fans had a difficult choice having to choose between watching the finish of this final, and that of the Cricket World Cup which concluded at the same time. It was a special day in sports history!
