On the afternoon of Monday, May 2, I turned my attention to Stamford Bridge in West London to watch Chelsea host Tottenham. Why you ask? A Tottenham loss or draw meant that Leicester City would win the Barclays Premier League title.
The final score…2-2. Leicester had been crowned champions. 5000-1 odds of winning to start the year, champions in the end.
It was truly one of the most unbelievable things I’ve witnessed. It even trumped the chill-inducing victory from Manchester City in 2012 to win the same title, only in the final moments of the season.
Even today, I still have trouble wrapping my head around the idea that Leicester went from worst to first in a year. So, naturally I do what every aspiring journalist chooses to do and looked up comparisons around all sports. After narrowing down my list, I decided on the top 10 unlikely sports champions.
