My jaw drops every time Roger Federer returns a crushing serve at 130-140 mph to his opponent. For some, matching Bobby Jones's classic elegant swing is equivalent to reaching the epitome of sporting success. But calling tennis or golf or any other the hardest sport is debatable. I personally believe that running a marathon is the toughest sport out there.
Allmendinger made improvements in 2008 but it was more of the same finishing 36th in the points and he only scored two top tens. Allmendinger had by far his best finish in the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup season, taking 24th. Allmendinger also showed he can still wheel it around a road course, scoring a seventh place, in 2009 at Infineon Raceway, near his hometown of Los Gatos.
Brian Deegan is no stranger to bumping around on a race course, winning a Lucas Oil Off Road Championship in 2009 and currently sitting third in the points for that series in 2010, but although the reins in racing comm have been loosened, several feuds at the top level have drawn the attention of the Nascar police. Deegan's wild style might not be tolerated, especially from a rookie on four wheels.
Many tend to simply switch off their brains, distancing themselves from the pain. This may work for some NASCAR racing but most of the best athletes refrain from doing so. Yes, they feel the pain too. But they choose to accept the aches, tune their bodies to adapt to each situation and reach the finish line. This is what makes for an elite runner.
Jimmie Johnson began his career at the age of 5, racing the 50cc motorcycles. By age 8 he had won his first championship. In 2000 he became a Busch Series driver, racing for Herzog Motorsports. He only won one Busch Series race. That was in 2001, the Hills Brothers Coffee 300. It was his 81st event. Because of sponsorship problems with Herzog Motorsports, Johnson switched to Hendrick Motorsports in 2002. Soon after that his sponsorship and merchandising offers increased. That led to the Jimmie Johnson NASCAR cornhole set, among other things.
Children's bean bags are also used for a more fitting setup when having story times with kids. These bean bags are more comfortable compared to hard wooden stools.
Being hot is not enough to achieve what Allison Stokke's did. This young pole-vaulter shot to fame through one picture on the internet. She has and probably will be the hottest female athlete for a long time to come. Though the fame came unexpectedly, you can be sure that 2010 will continue to attract attention to this hot female athlete as she turns 21 years of age on March 22, 2010.
