Sports 2011: Staying steady through the ups and downs

What first comes to mind when you look back over the past year in sports? The New Zealand All Blacks’ narrow win over France in the rugby World Cup in Auckland? India’s triumph over Sri Lanka in Mumbai in the final of the cricket World Cup? The inspired leadership of Aaron Rodgers in the Green Bay Packers’ victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl?

You might recall Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt’s winged victories on the track, or the course records set by Kenyan Geoffrey Mutai in both the Boston and New York marathons. Perhaps you noted the steady rise of Serbian Novak Djokovic, who won three of tennis’s four Grand Slam events, or the achievement of 16-year-old American Lexi Thompson in becoming the youngest player to win a Ladies Professional Golf Association tour event.
