Later today on the program, anchor Marco Werman speaks with author (and possible contender for world’s greatest sports nerd) Tim Harris. Harris has written a book called Players: 250 Men Women and Animals who Created Modern Sport. Amongst other things, he tells Marco about a vaudeville star who reinvented swimming and the man who worked out how best to jump over objects while riding a horse.
Is there a sporting man, woman (or animal) who you think hasn’t gotten the recognition they deserve? Leave a comment below.
