Former world number one, Maria Sharapova, even after being the most successful player in the world of tennis and winning huge amount of prize money every year, the inner child of the Russian beauty is still an honest, down to earth and sweet. She didn’t have the privilege of enjoy the luxuries of a high-class lifestyle during her childhood. Here are ten life facts of Maria Sharapova gathered by us:

 

1. World´s Number One

At the age of 17, in 2004, Maria achieved way too high in life by breaking into the finals at Wimbledon. Her opponent then was Serena Williams who has been a defending champion always. At the court, during the Grand Slam, Williams looked more nervous than the 17 year old champ. The triumph of Maria in that match was like a dream come true and a set example for the whole of women’s tennis in Russia. She became the third youngest female to claim the title in the tournament’s history. Sharapova has been ranked no.1 by WTA five times on different occasions and for 21 weeks in total.

Beyond that, she also has interest in modeling in fashion, singing, jazz dancing and movies (Pearl Harbor (2001)). Except Italian bread, Maria loves Russian food and music and any kind of dessert as she says her favorite dessert is just “anything”.

 

3. Her Shoulder Injury

In 2007, a shoulder injury led to downfall of Sharapova which made her face many losses, but still she was amongst the top 5 women’s tennis players at the end of that year. Her shoulder injury continued to affect her game which forced her to leave tennis for a surgery to repair the injury. In 2011, after a treatment and rehabilitation of one year, Maria returned to the game when she finished the year ranked 4, her first top 5 finish since 2007. Due to her shoulder injury, Sharapova lost in the semifinals to Aravane Rezaï. In the semifinals of French Open, she lost to Ana Ivanovic. Thereafter, she also lost to Venus Williams, experiencing her earliest Wimbledon loss. Within a short span of time, she fell out of the top 5 in the world rankings for the first time since 2004.

 

4. Split with fiancé Sasha Vujacic

Sharapova was engaged to Sasha Vujačić, a basketball player, who plays for the Anadolu Efes S.K. in Istanbul, Turkey. The two were into a relationship since 2009. In 2010, Vujacic proposed Maria on the first anniversary of their meeting at a friend’s place. After that, he was there throughout with Sharapova to support her at Wimbledon. He accompanied her during her run to the final, stood and screamed for Sharapova standing in the guest box.. However, on August 21, during Maria’s post match news conference at the US Open, she revealed that the engagement between her and professional basketball player Sasha Vujacic has quietly ended several months ago.

By getting associated with Nike Sharapova got even richer. Russian tennis superstar Maria Sharapova has extended her sponsorship deal with Nike in an eight-year $70 million agreement. The contract included dresses designed by Maria for all the major tournaments. Her beauty and popularity also led her to commercials of renowned brands like Land Rover, Canon, as well as approved of namesake items by watch brand Tag Heuer and jeweler Tiffany & Co.

The question that arises first and foremost is who or what is a legend. It may be a person who has earned the respect of his/her peers/followers over a considerable period of time. It can also be someone who has achieved a lot in a short span of time and has attained a demi-god status as a result of it. Keeping in mind the incongruent views that pop out while listing down legendary sports personalities, I would perhaps use my discretion to add my two cents to the already existing debate. Be it the much-anticipated football World Cup or the highly competitive Wimbledon tournament, we make our tv sets our best friends. If given an opportunity, many of us would go to any length to grab the coveted ticket for a Cricket World Cup final or even for a UEFA Champions League final. Considering the wide gamut of sporting activities that take place across the world, it would be extremely difficult to list down just 10 of them. Nevertheless, after much consideration of a wide range of parameters, 10 of the most iconic and legendary sports personalities are about to be presented to you. They have represented their respective nations/clubs in either individual or team-based sports. Generations have remembered their unfathomable contribution to world sports and will continue to do so. So here I present top 10 legendary sports personalities in the world.

 

1. Roger Federer

Roger Federer

If you are a Djokovic or a Raphael Nadal fan, you may come up with reasons why Federer can never be given the top slot. Keeping aside groupism and favouritism for some time, it won’t be unfair to say that no other player in the history of tennis has retained the no.1 position for 237 consecutive weeks. With a total of 17 grand slam single titles, he is still ruling the roost. Like it has been mentioned before, legends are made of sterner stuff than usual. Hence, this old warrior continues to give the newer ones a run for their money.

 

2. Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar

The Master Blaster of world cricket bowed out of the arena in November 2013. Nevertheless, the legacy left behind by a cricketing career spanning over 24 years can never be forgotten. Sachin holds the record for scoring the highest number of runs in international matches and it stands at 34357 runs. You are bound to find him topping most of the record lists in Tests and ODIs. His career saw many ups and downs, with critics questioning his potentials time and again. He surpassed all such talk and walked into the sunset of his glorious career with his head held high.

 

3. Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali

This legendary boxer deserves some bit of credit for making boxing a sport recognized all over the world.  He was crowned “Sportsman of the Century” by Sports Illustrated and “Sports personality of the Year” by the BBC.  He has been engaged in historic duels in a career spanning over 14 years. He won his first world championship title in the year 1964 and his career has been dabbled by controversies even post-retirement. Despite his image as a polarizing entity, he has managed to have and flaunt unorthodox views on issues even beyond the boxing ring. He has staged successful comebacks even after being written off by experts on many occasions.

 

4. Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi

He may have missed out on the Ballon d’Or for the year 2013 to arch rival Christiano Ronaldo but Messi’s name will surely go down in world football’s history as one cracker of an attacking player. He is arguably the best footballer in the world today with a total of 5 Ballon d’Or(s) to his credit and all of them in succession. Be it FIFA World Player of the year or UEFA best player in Europe award, Messi has been there and done it all. He is often compared to Argentine legend Diego Maradona and analysts predict that he would even surpass his mentor Maradona in years to come. This Barcelona man has a bright future awaiting him.

 

5. Sir Alex Ferguson

Sir Alex Ferguson

Fergie, as he is fondly called by Manchester United followers, has had a successful stint with the club for around 26 long years. He has been one of the longest serving coaches in the history of the game soccer and lead United to a number of illustrious victories under his watchful eyes. This 72-year old Scottish genius may not have been in action on the arena like others on this list but has managed to be a maverick from behind the scenes. Under him United won 38 trophies, including 2 UEFA Champions League titles and 13 Premier League titles.

As the world is moving forward in terms of development, trade and commerce, the individual health is taking a back seat. Gradually, it is becoming that battery of the phone which is taken for granted and not paid any heed until it reaches a critical level. But as we all know, when the battery gets finished, the phone dies. The metaphor is absolutely clear and apt to denote the intensity to which this condition has been worsened. There is no dearth of diseases on earth, maybe that’s the reason for a one-way trip to Mars! In addition to that, a problem that is entirely universal is that people consider themselves as fit and healthy as long as they are not diagnosed with a particular disease. In this myopic view, people tend to ignore the fatigue and lack of stamina that has enslaved them. This lack of stamina becomes a part and parcel of their lives and they learn to live with it rather than taking any action against it. Through this article of ours, we aim to demolish the myth of a healthy being by getting you a reality check done that if you do not have proper stamina, then not just probably; most definitely you have a serious health issue that needs to be dealt with in the earliest possible. The list below provides you with top ten ways to deal with the lack of stamina and how to increase it.

The top 10 exercises that increase stamina are:

 

1. Circuit-Training

Circuit-training

Circuit training involves the conditioning of the body in such a way that it is able to bear the fierce most atrocities. It focuses on various parts of the body. It is a combination of various exercises for short period of time. It uses the technique of high intensity aerobics. It strengthens the core strength of a person’s body. It is so rigorous and intense that it enhances the stamina level of a person with a rocket speed. It tones the muscles of the entire body and is works wonders in keeping a check on the heart muscles.

 

2. Running

Running

Have we ever seen an athlete who gets tired or lacks energy? Have we ever been able to catch up to the walking speed of an athlete? Well, the honest answer to both the questions is an obvious no, lest you are an athlete yourself. What makes them so energetic is the rigorous running that they do. Now, you might not want to match up to their level. But, one should run daily in order to increase stamina. It is the best way to enhance the cardiovascular endurance. It keeps the pumping of heart at its best level and tones the entire body. In addition to that, it also relieves a person of his/her stressful thoughts, making it a wholesome exercise.

 

3. Cycling

Cycling

When we say that childhood is the best phase of a person’s life, we surely have reasons for that. This simple and playful activity can prove to be very helpful in increasing one’s stamina. It regulates the heart muscles and tones the muscles of arms and especially legs. It increases our cardiovascular endurance. One should focus on cycling for a longer distance than yesterday. This simple exercise is so beneficial that it has made its way to the confines of a gymnasium. The only difference being that in a gym, you cannot indulge in sight seeing while enhancing your stamina, owing to the stationary nature of the cycle.

 

4. Swimming

Swimming

This exercise, apart from being an “exercise”, is a way through which you can save lives. The best part about swimming is that it involves the movement of entire body and not just particular parts of the body. It tones the muscles and increases flexibility. It is a very good form of cardiovascular workout. It regulates the heartbeat and keeps the lungs under check. Again an exercise that is a lot of fun, it can be done as a weekly family affair too. And in no time will you be able to see the deep benefits of this exercise.

 

5. Walking

Walking

In all the lifestyle columns of all the magazines of the world, this exercise has surely been talked about at great lengths. Walking is an exercise that involves least effort. One just has to wear shoes and walk! This helps in regulating blood pressure. It is considered to be a great cardiovascular workout. The ease with which this can be performed is its USP. However, in order to attain significant changes in energy level, one must increase the speed and distance. And so you can easily increase the time duration of your energy level and stamina.

 

6. Aerobics

Aerobics

This is the fun sister of skipping. Aerobics is nothing but a form of dance that helps a person to loosen the rigid muscles and tighten the sagging muscles of a body. It helps in improving the flexibility also. It increases the energy level of a person to a large extent. It also helps in toning the body and bringing it to a proper shape. Like all the exercises, it also has the added benefit of weight reduction and burning extra calories. By inculcating such fun exercises in your daily routine, you can definitely increase your stamina easily.

 

7. Weight Training

Weight-training

No, this exercise is not meant only for the wrestlers. One might start with lighter weights initially. The aim is to be able to lift weights without having the feeling of falling apart. By lifting weights, the muscles become much stronger. This also plays a psychological part in enhancing the stamina of an individual as while lifting huge weights, the person does not feel intimidated by them and instead, gathers full stamina to lift the obstacle and emerge victorious. However, this exercise should be performed under strict supervision of a trainer and not be tried at home without any safety measures.

 

8. Skipping

Skipping

Lack of stamina can lead to several mental and physical ailments. In order to improve one’s stamina, this child’s play can help one in long run. It helps in pumping heart muscles. It also involves the movement of arms and legs and thereby strengthening their muscles. This is one exercise that is not the one that would make you want to die at once. Instead, the element of fun that is involved in this exercise makes it all the more effective and versatile for all the age groups. In addition to increasing stamina, it has the added benefit of reducing weight that just serves as a cherry on the top.

 

9. Step-Climbing

Step-climbing

This is one exercise that is so easy to do that we almost forget the large effect that it can create in our body system. Just a simple up down the staircase can prove very beneficial in increasing the stamina of an individual. The mechanism that step climbing involves is almost similar to a cardio exercise in a high end gym. This exercise is the best example of “best things in the world are free”. Just by making simple changes in one’s daily life like taking the stairs instead of the elevator can enhance one’s stamina manifold.

 

10. Yoga

Yoga

This Indian set of exercises is one that has stayed with the entire human civilization for ages. The reasons for that are quite clear and evident. Yoga helps a person to get rid of all sorts of diseases. It has even proven beneficial in some acute cases of cancer. It helps in increasing the flexibility of body and also reduces mental stress. Not only that, it detoxifies the body from within and increases the overall stamina of a person. The individual practicing yoga becomes a very active person who does not succumb to fatigue.

Top 10 Dumbest Sports Injuries http://top-10-list.org/2014/03/21/top-10-dumbest-sports-injuries/ http://top-10-list.org/2014/03/21/top-10-dumbest-sports-injuries/#comments Fri, 21 Mar 2014 04:05:17 +0000 http://top-10-list.org/?p=45132

Sports and fitness are to some people just as integral a part of their lives as breathing is. And such people are even at an advantage over others as they reap all the benefits of physical activity such as an optimum blood pressure level, a bunch of healthy cardiac muscles, an uplift in their positive affectivity due to the release of endorphin, along with many others. Sprains, minor fractures, damage to the skin and ligaments are way too common among the practicing and frolicking sportspersons and can affect their careers quite adversely, and even result into huge monetary losses for them.

Here is a look at the top ten dumbest sports injuries of all times:

 

1. Chris Hanson axed his own leg

Chris Hanson

Hanson had to miss a whole month of his game when he hit himself with an axe in a state of overwhelmed love for his coach Jack Del Rio’s ideals. In an attempt to follow the idiotic symbolism of the Jaguars’ coach who kept a tree stump and an axe in the locker room to encourage the team members of his thought to “keep chopping the wood,” Hanson got awarded with a severely injured leg.

 

2. Gus Frerotte’s expression of happiness

Gus Frerotte

In celebration of his TD run versus the Giants back in 1997, Gus Frerotte ran towards a stadium wall and spiked the ball into it stopping just a few feet away. And after a few seconds, he again ran towards and into the concrete wall of the stadium that too with no particular reason! This self-inflicted injury costed him a sprained neck and of course, a very painful head.

 

3. Adam Eaton’s apprehension

Adam Eaton

When Eaton couldn’t wait to open his new DVD, a double bill of Backdraft and Happy Gilmore, he tried to quickly rip open the pack. And in a battle of the Padres pitcher vs. shrink wrap, shrink wrap won the show. While trying to cut open the packaging, Eaton stabbed himself in the stomach with a knife and was hurriedly taken to a hospital where he had to stay for days before being able to get back to his much craved for DVD.

 

4. Allen Watson’s beer bottle

Allen Watson

He missed a fatal wound by just a quarter of an inch while trying to open a bottle of beer. Due to come off the DL in July 1998, Angels starter Allen Watson decided to celebrate with a cold one. Instead, the bottle shattered while he was opening it, gashing his wrist, causing a deep cut and subsequently sending him to the ER.

 

5. Plaxico Burress’ wrong placing sense

Plaxico Burress

In November 2008, Plaxico shot himself in the leg while trying to carry a pistol in a New York City bar. He had, by no good thoughts, hidden his gun inside his sweatpants and in an unsuccessful attempt to catch in from falling down to the ground and being caught by the security, got himself shot in the leg. He ended up with an injury in his leg and two years behind the bars.

Cricket is among the world’s most renowned games, the origin of cricket is from England, and this game started in the 16th century and has a very strong history. Cricket is other words is a legend itself and this legend has given birth to many other legends in the face of some extraordinary brilliant cricket players including batsman, bowler and fielder. A cricket match is played between 2 teams and each team is based on 11 members, every team bats turn wise, 2 batsman of a team are on the field initially and when all the batsmen of a team are dismissed, it’s the turn for the next team to bat. While the members of one time are at the batting position, one member of the opposing team serves as a bowler who delivers the ball while the rest of the players fulfill their role as a fielder.

The responsibility of the fielders is to catch the ball as soon as the batsman hits it in order to stop him from making runs. Other than that fielder has the power to dismiss a batsman, when the batsman hits the ball and if the fielder is able to catch the ball with it being touching the even once then the batsman is automatically dismissed. If the fielder is able to hit the wicket with the ball and the batsman is not inside the crease then also he gets dismissed.

The role of a fielder is as important as of a batsman or a bowler.

Once the deadlift is over, the legs, traps, middle back, and shoulders assist to bring the bar into a resting position right in front of the neck. Then, in the second part (jerk), the legs, shoulders, chest, and arms bring the bar right above the head. This exercise hence accommodates various techniques in one which we had talked about and prove to be a very life changing experiment as the builder feels a very exotic experience while performing this exercise. It is like a challenge being accepted by the participant that would ultimately give him a degree of being a SUCCESSFUL MUSCLE BUILDER.

Heavier the squatting better is the outcome but even the most expertise one too loses the game as there is a huge risk factor involved in this act. Each and every action must be poised and neat. Elucidating with one circumstance, a small but a very significant detailing i.e. knees must not move beyond the toes, an inch of mistake and you are out of the arena.
