The Greatest Athletic Feats in History

First, some mood music.

They make us cheer, they make us cry, and they bring us together like nothing else can. Sports are more than just a pastime. They’re a lifestyle. They’re an opportunity to marvel at the resilience of the human spirit. And, seemingly super-human feats like the ones contained on this list give us permission to wax poetic about a world in which anything is possible. They remind us of our own limits, sure. But that, with the right attitude and work ethic, things like boundaries, records, and limits are just road signs meant to be passed.

Today on Healthversed, we salute the men and women who taught us all that indeed, anything is possible. From the basketball courts to the hockey rinks, we present the greatest athletic feats in the history of sport. Let’s go!

The Miami Dolphins Perfect Season

Back in 1972, the NFL’s Miami Dolphins came to the conclusion that life was much better when you don’t have to deal with losing. So naturally, they posted the greatest single season record, a perfect one, of 14-0. Though the 2007 New England Patriots got pretty darn close, the 1972 Miami Dolphins stand alone on the mountaintop of perfection.
