Looks winning is a habit for F1 champion, Sebastian Vettel and it seems there is no stopping the German Juggernaut! We take a look at the some of the sportsperson of the current era who are dominating their sport:
The Jamaican sprinter currently holds the tag of being the ‘fastest man on the planet’. Bolt holds both, the 100 metres and 200 metres world records and is the first man to win six Olympic gold medals (2012 London Olympics). Being that, Bolt is also an eight time world champion. With such a phenomenal record, very few come even closer to beat the Jamaican!
The current world number one in tennis, Rafael Nadal is a tough nut to crack especially on clay courts. Nadal became the only male player to win a single Grand Slam tournament eight times (French Open) and the first to win at least one Grand Slam tournament for nine consecutive years, breaking the record of eight previously shared by Björn Borg, Pete Sampras, and Roger Federer.
After a blip in his personal career, world number one Tiger Woods has reached the heights again in golf. Even though the likes of Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson threatened his numero uno spot, his 14 wins in Majors have proved that he is still the unbeatable in golf.
He may not be atop the ODI rankings, Indian skipper MS Dhoni is still the best player in the 50-over format is concerned. Regarded as the best finisher of the game, ‘Mahi’ still holds the key to the Indian batting lineup that lists the names of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma amongst others. Dhoni has won the ICC T20 World Cup, ICC Champions Trophy, ICC Cricket World Cup and also made Team India as the number one Test team.
Currently the best player on the planet, Argentine wonder kid Lionel Messi is the man who is yet to beaten in football. With 4 Ballon d’Or trophies, add to that three European Golden Shoe awards, six La Ligas, two Copas del Rey, five Supercopas, three UEFA Champions Leagues, two UEFA Super Cups and two Club World Cups; Messi has won it all with his club FC Barcelona. Only Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo has come closer to matching his greatness but Messi still stands atopis at the top of the football world.
