Directory containing biographies of world famous sportsmen and sportswomen.

Play a few games and get fame and fortune in return; who wouldn’t love that? Athletes and sportsmen, and women, have always been a great sour of inspiration for everyone. A few examples that would come to mind would be people like Michael Jordan, who was actually denied the opportunity to play on the varsity basketball team because he was too short; and Dick Hoyt, better known as Team Hoyt amongst athletic circles for being the father who took to triathlons just so that his disabled son could enjoy being a part of them; he has successfully completed 6 Ironman races. They symbolize the level of fitness, competitive edge, physique, popularity and fame that everyone wishes they had. In some countries, certain sportsmen are so famous and admired that they are actually worshiped.
