Almost every American kid grows up watching his/her dad watching football on a Saturday, the F1 on a Sunday, and languishing in glorious summers of sport. Nearly all tweens and teens have an Andy Roddick poster taped to their walls, a Tom Brady replica jersey on their wardrobes or a new Vince Carter Nike Shox to step into. That is because America and sport are inseparable twins. America has never been short on sporting talent. Over the years, it has produced football teams to root for, F1 drivers to cheer on. That's true! With legendary sportsmen like Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Tiger Woods, Pete Sampras, Joe Montana and many more under its belt, America was always destined to be one of the greatest sporting nations of all times. So it is no coincidence that we have a wad of sporting heroes coming from the land. Explore our compilation of biographies for timelines, life stories and interesting trivia & facts related to the lives of some great American sportspersons.
