|" Will 2016 be forever remembered as the year of the underdog? Looking beyond the world of sport for a minute nike air max plus tn ultra donna italia , it's a theme that has its merits - rightly or wrongly. The US election was won by a candidate that was long regarded as a joke, something echoed by Brexit, and sport was no different.
Take your pick of the biggest tournaments in the world and there has been a noticeable trend toward unfashionable, unfancied and unfathomable champions.
Let's start with the biggest of all: Leicester City. The Foxes were in relegation form in the 2014-15 season of the English Premier League under Nigel Pearson before a remarkable turnaround that saw them retain their status in England's top flight. A mere 12 months later they were the champions, and deservedly so nike air max plus tn ultra italia , in a story that touched the hearts of many a sports romantic.
But Claudio Ranieri's unlikely champs were not the only ones that blew the minds of bookmakers and bloggers alike in defying reasonable expectation.
Major League Baseball's Chicago Cubs ended the 71-year-old ""Curse of the Billy Goat"" and a 108-year wait for the World Series this year, while in the end to another of the curses so prevalent in US sports, the Cleveland Cavaliers lifted the NBA championship and in doing so ended the city's 52-year drought for a national champion in major sport. That they won thanks to LeBron James, one of the best players in the history of the NBA, hardly matters given the Cavs were up against a Golden State Warriors team that had just blown away a number of regular-season records and were defending champions.
Elsewhere nike air max plus rosse italia , Chile beat Leo Messi's Argentina in the Copa America Centenario and while they had done the same thing the year before, this was even more unexpected than their 2015 victory on home soil. In Europe, Portugal won the European Championship against hosts France - and they did so without talisman Cristiano Ronaldo who urged them on from the sidelines after being injured. Elsewhere at Euro 2016, Wales and Iceland both defied pre-tournament predictions at the expense of the continent's giants.
Golf? Danny Willett, 29 nike air max plus donna italia , won the green jacket at the Masters. Tennis? The all-conquering Serena Williams was a rare second best to Angelique Kerber at January's US Open. Rugby? Ireland put a stop to the All Blacks, and with it their incredible record of consecutive wins, and in Australia the Cronulla Sharks became NRL champs for the first time. Aussie Rules? Western Bulldogs won for the first time since 1954. Heck, there was even a refugee team at the Rio Olympics.
But, much like some of the political results nike air max plus nere italia , there may be an element of wishing none of this ever happened. Take Leicester City. Everyone may wish them well on their Champions League adventure, but there's a bit of every fan that wants to see them relegated. Year of the underdog? Maybe, but there's plenty of people that will want that particular dog to have had its day.

Eiffel Tower goes dark as France mourns 129 dead
The Eiffel Tower stood dark in a symbol of mourning Saturday night as France struggled to absorb the deadliest violence on its soil since World War II: coordinated gun-and-suicide bombing attacks across Paris that left at least 129 people dead and 352 injured.
President Francois Hollande vowed that France would wage "merciless" war on the Islamic State group, which claimed responsibility for the mayhem, as investigators raced to track down their accomplices and uncovered possible links to networks in Belgium and Syria.
Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said three groups of attackers, including seven suicide bombers, carried out the "act of barbarism" that shattered a Parisian Friday night.
He said the attackers in the Bataclan concert hall www.airmaxplusitalia.it , where 89 people died, mentioned Syria and Iraq during their rampage. Of the hundreds wounded in the six attacks, 99 were in critical condition.
Seven attackers launched gun attacks at Paris cafes, detonated suicide bombs near France's national stadium and killed hostages inside the concert venue during a show by an American rock band — an attack on the .
