Sportsmanship and Inspiration - Moments that will make you cry

Sportsmanship and Inspiration are all around us. From the clap of the opposing team when someone walks off the field injured to the soccer and softball teams that make human tunnels for each other. We see great moment in sports happen all the time and everyday.

However, every once in a while we get a glimpse of something that is truly spectacular that make you feel like the whole world isn't in it for themselves. And when those things happen, we have to celebrate and make sure everyone stands up and notices. Here are some great moments in sportsmanship and other inspirational moments that will make you cry.

Great Moment in Softball

Her goal was to hit a home run and Sarah did, however, she damaged her knee after missing first base and was in too much pain to make it around the bases. See what happens next...

Great Inspirational Moments in Basketball

A basketball player's mother dies and isn't planning on playing in the game that night. In his need to be with friends, the player comes to the game, however, he wasn't on the roster for the game which means the other team gets foul shots. See what happens next... A great basketball moment

Inspirational basketball moment #2. Cory Weissman suffered a stroke his freshman year. Three years later he is an honarary starter for his high school basketball team. That would have been enough for Cory, but what happened next gave Cory a chance to reach another goal. Read about Cory's Moment.

Inspirational Moment in Track

One of the truly inspirational moments in sports, is when someone has the courage to finish a race even though they are no longer going to win. See what Derick Remond does at the 1992 Olympic games in Barcelona.

A Great Moment in Cross Country

Great Sportsmanship Moment in Football

Sometimes, a great moment in sports is letting a kids score a point in a football game knowing they would never get that opportunity for real. Kudos for these coaches for making a moment of a lifetime for a child.

Inspirational Moments in Hockey

Inspirational moments come in all shapes and sizes. At this hockey game, a young player gets to score a goal.

      guess you can't add the video but that story about the cross-country runner that carried his opponent half a mile to the finish line today on yahoo would make a good addition to your text module. http://rivals.yahoo.com/highschool/blog/prep_rally...

      nice lens and good luck on squidoo!
