    As a player, Franz Beckenbauer represented West Germany in six tournaments (the final three as team captain):

    1966 World Cup: Runners-up

    1968 European Championship: failed to qualify

    1970 World Cup: Third Place

    1972 European Championship: Champions

    1974 World Cup: Champions

    1976 European Championship: Runners-up



    As a coach, he was in charge of West Germany for three tournaments:

    1986 World Cup: Runners-up

    1988 European Championship: semi-finalists

    1990 World Cup: Champions



    As the chairman of the committee formed by the Deutscher Fussball Bund to try to win Germany the hosting rights to the 2006 World Cup, Beckenbauer campaigned hard and brought the tournament to Germany despite the world's forgone conclusion that South Africa (and if not they than England) would be hosts.

    The 2006 World Cup brought the German nation together. Not only did they shed the shame that their ancestors left them and wave the black, red, and gold with pride, they also showed the world that they are warm and compassionate and goodhearted. They cheered the team on to a fantastic Third Place finish, which could've even been better if not for letting Italy score in the 119th minute of the semi-final.

    That tournament, with its exorcism of so many ghosts of Germany's past, would never have happened without Beckenbauer's genius.

    If one wants to count Beckenbauer's European campaigns with Bayern Munich as contributions to German football, his legacy grows. Bayern, without a foreign player on the team, won the 1967 Cup Winners Cup. With Beckenbauer as their captain they won three consecutive European Cups ('74-'76), never having more than two non-Germans on the squad at any time, and those non-Germans were Germanic.

    In summation, as a player Franz Beckenbauer captained the West German National Team to being simultaneous holders of the European Championship and World Cup and won silverware in three of the four other tournaments in which he represented the country. He coached West Germany in three tournaments, reaching the World Cup Final twice, winning it once, and reaching the European Championship semi-finals. As the architecht behind bringing the World Cup tournament to Germany, he defied the odds to beat out England and heavily favored South Africa, and German team and the German nation went on to make it an unforgettable event.

    I am a Germanic of German ancestry. I am more proud of being Germanic than being German, but I believe that Germany is the most recognizable representative of the Germanic world. Even if you took my DNA and found that I have more Nordic blood than most Germans and am more closely related to Swedes rather than Germans, I would still support Germany as the ultimate representative of the Germanic world. Therefore considering what he has done for Germany in the most popular sport in the world, Franz Beckenbauer is my hero.

    German Biathletes:


    Magdalena Neuner








    Magdalena "Lena" Neuner (born 9 February 1987) is a German professional biathlete. She started biathlon at the age of nine and won five junior world championship titles from 2004 to 2006. Neuner made her debut in the Biathlon World Cup in 2006 and she won her first World Cup race in January 2007. One month later, she won three gold medals at her first Biathlon World Championships. In the 2007–08 season, Neuner—at the age of 21—became the youngest overall World Cup winner in the history of the International Biathlon Union (IBU). At the 2008 World Championships, she equalised her result from one year earlier by again winning three titles.

    Henkel has won three Olympic medals: one gold medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics in the 15 km individual, and a gold (2002) and silver (2006) medal in relay competitions. She is also the first biathlete to become world champion in each individual event: 2005 in the 15 km individual, 2007 in the 12.5 km mass start, and 2008 in the 7.5 km sprint and subsequent 10 km pursuit.[2] She has won a total of six gold and three silver medals at world championships.

    Hermann Maier Austrian

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wo1Xw9B2E94

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYf1JWt2U7g
















    Hermann Maier (born December 7, 1972, in Altenmarkt im Pongau) is a former Austrian alpine ski racer.

    Maier has won four overall World Cup titles (1998, 2000, 2001, 2004), two Olympic gold medals (both in 1998), three World Championship titles (1999: 2, and 2005) and 54 races on the World Cup circuit. He was nicknamed the "Herminator".

    Maier ranks among the finest alpine ski racers in history, which includes Toni Sailer, Jean-Claude Killy, Gustav Thöni, Ingemar Stenmark, Franz Klammer, Phil Mahre, Marc Girardelli, Pirmin Zurbriggen, Alberto Tomba, Lasse Kjus and Kjetil André Aamodt.



    Maier made his World Cup debut at age 23 on February 10, 1996, and finished 26th in the giant slalom at Hinterstoder, Austria. A year later in February 1997, he won his first World Cup event - a Super-G race in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. He quickly established himself as an explosive and dynamic racer, well known for his strength, willingness to take risks, and strong work ethic.

    Maier soon dominated alpine ski racing, winning the gold medal in the giant slalom and Super-G at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, only a few days after a dramatic crash in the downhill race where he flew spectacularly off the sunlit course and repeatedly tumbled into deep snow. That put him on the cover of Sports Illustrated and made him a well known sportsman around the globe. Maier won the overall World Cup title in 1998, as well as the Super-G and giant slalom season titles, and placed second in the downhill standings. In 2000 and 2001, he won the overall World Cup title, as well as the season titles in downhill, Super G, and giant slalom.


    Maier at "Day of Sports" Festival Vienna 2006.His racing career nearly ended following a near-fatal motorcycle accident in August 2001; he collided with a car on his way home from a summer training session in Austria. Doctors nearly amputated his lower leg, but instead Maier underwent massive reconstructive surgery. Most believed his racing career was over, and he had to sit out the 2002 season, missing the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. He returned to international competition in January 2003 in Adelboden, Switzerland. Just two weeks later, he shocked the skiing world with an amazing Super-G victory in the skiing-mecca of Kitzbühel, Austria.

    In 2004, his first full season back, he reclaimed both the Super-G and overall titles, a feat widely seen as one of the greatest comebacks in sports history. In 2004, Hermann Maier received the Laureus World Sports Award for the "Comeback of the Year". His overall title was the fourth of his career.

    Reflecting his apparently indestructible nature, he is sometimes jocularly known as "The Herminator." After his 1998 Olympic gold medals in Nagano he also appeared on Jay Leno's Tonight Show on NBC - together with Austrian-born actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is known worldwide as "The Terminator".

    In 2004, Maier wrote an autobiography with his friend and former publicity agent, Knut Okresek. The book, Hermann Maier: Das Rennen Meines Lebens (in German), dealt mainly with his stunning recovery from the 2001 motorcycle accident. In 2005, VeloPress, a Boulder, Colorado-based publisher affiliated with Ski Racing magazine, acquired the worldwide English language rights to the book, which was published in time for the 2006 Olympics in Turin, Italy, as Hermann Maier: The Race of My Life.

    In October 2005, he won the opening giant slalom in Sölden to amass 51 victories in the World Cup. This placed him fourth on the career victory list, behind Ingemar Stenmark, Annemarie Moser-Pröll and Vreni Schneider.

    On June 20, 2006, Maier announced he was switching to Head as his equipment sponsor, ending his long affiliation with Atomic. Also switching from Atomic to Head at this time were champions Bode Miller of the U.S. and Didier Cuche of Switzerland.

    On January 18, 2008, Maier finished second in the Kitzbühel's Super-G. His career results in the Super-G races at Kitzbühel are the best in history (7 races: 5 wins and 2 second places). The following day, Maier finished fifth in the downhill. These were his best results of the 2008 season.

    On November 30, 2008, Maier won the first Super-G of the 2009 season, held in Lake Louise, for his 24th Super-G win. It was his 54th World Cup victory, but the first in nearly three years, and came a week before his 36th birthday. It was Maier's fourth victory in the Super-G at Lake Louise, the last coming five years earlier.

    On 13 October 2009, after 13 years competing in the World Cup circuit, 36 year old Hermann Maier announced his retirement.

    I always found her very fascinating. Would anyone care to give her a racial classification?

    I has always liked Ingemar Johansson. He was a swedish heavyweight boxer, he is the only swedish heavyweight champion of the world, so far. I think that he also is the only european boxer that has conquer the world heavyweight champion belt.
    He faughted Floyd Patterson in 26 juni 1959 and won by KO.

    Jonny Wilkinson







    The word ‘unique’ must be used sparingly but Jonny Wilkinson OBE qualifies for that description with a kaleidoscope of national and world records that dovetail with his triumphant injury time dropped goal that secured the 20-17 win over Australia in the 2003 RWC final in Sydney.

    His list of accolades is almost endless and headed by his 1,195 Test points, a global record that he regained in the France match at Twickenham on February 26, 2011. His previous total had been surpassed by Dan Carter, of New Zealand, in the Wales match at Cardiff on November 27, 2010. Jonny’s aggregate comprises 1,128 for England, 67 for the British & Irish Lions in six matches and a world best of 33 dropped goals, together with a peerless aggregate of 249 points in the RWC.

    He first represented England at the age of 18 years and 314 days against Ireland 13 years ago, captained the side against Italy in 2003 and has since set national records for most conversions (153) and penalty goals (231), as well as dropped goals (33) and points. His 150th conversion was of Danny Care’s try against Italy at Twickenham in February 2011.

    Jonny’s England Test appearances have yielded 61 victories and he would have won many more caps except for the intervention of 13 different injuries, including a dislocated left knee cap in October 2008 that ruled him out for eight months. A shoulder injury prompted his absence from the 2010 Investec Internationals but is now England’s joint fourth most capped player alongside Martin Johnson.

    Stoicism, together with the belief that he would return mentally stronger every time, has run parallel with his enduring skills. He was voted the International Player of the Year for 2002 and the RPA Players’ Player the following year when he also became BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

    Other honours include becoming only the third player to win the Golden Boot award by reaching 1,000 Premiership points. He expanded that total to 1,489 before switching to Toulon on a two-year contract for 2009-10 from Newcastle Falcons, the club he had joined from Lord Wandsworth College in 1997. Last December, he signed an extended contract with French club that will keep him there until 2013.

    Born in Frimley, Surrey, he began playing days when four at Farnham RFC and later appeared for Hampshire, London and England Schools before being chosen for the national under 21s and enjoying captivating success on the world stage
