And there goes Juantorena down the back straight, opening his legs and showing his class is one of the best-known sporting faux pas ever uttered by a commentator. Said in total innocence by Ron Pickering as Alberto Juantorena pulled away from the chasing pack on the way to a gold medal at the 1976 Olympic Games, it has made it into comic commentary folklore and is the inspiration for this collection of hilarious sports quotes. Whether it is a confused cliche, mixed metaphor, a sports person stating the ridiculously obvious or a babbled banter of a post-match interview, this magnificent collection of sporting quotes celebrates the glorious slip-ups of sports stars and commentators. Every imaginable sport is featured as are many famous sporting greats, proving that nobody is immune to the occasional gormless gaff.
