He was at the top of his sport.
“Dan Wheldon is going to win the race…”
…the Indy 500…
“It’s unbelievable, man.”
…but five months later:
“A huge crash…”
…Dan Wheldon died, doing what he loved to do and did so well.
Other sports legends: Smokin’ Joe Frazier.
“The Heavyweight Champion of the World.”
Multiple marathon winner Grete Waitz.
“The New York City Marathon is very special.”
Seve Ballesteros, held in high regard by fellow golfers like Tiger Woods.
“Just the way he played, it was fun to watch.”
