A suggestion has been made many times, but many times:
It’s very contemporary, but there’s a tennis player named Tennys Sandgren!
european reader Journalism, Some ideas for the column: Jeremy Bed, soccer player. Lesser known, Sebastian Crampon, is now ruling. In rugby, another very popular sport here, there was a very good player, Fabian Bellos (mostly with his nose in the grass), David Milley (half scrum), as well as player and then president Bernard Labassett, who did it. Does not keep the ball (pass it). In fencing, and still active, Lawrence Ibe. In Canada, Dylan Armstrong, with a strong arm, served as a shot putter. Always in the arms of big, Jack Armstrong, the bowler in the major tournaments in the 1990 years. In the high jump, how can we forget the legendary Javier Sotomayor, the eternal world champion. And in conclusion, my best one: Considering poker a sport, a guy named Chris Moneymaker, that’s not a nickname!
In the category of names dedicated to their sport… Jesse LaCourse! And she’s dominant too!
And what about Scott Speed, the racing driver for Toro Rosso in Formula 1. and Welsh golfer Tom Green. Near the house, we all remember who played with the Canadians in the ’70s: yes, Guy Lapointe.
Guys, I forgot that gentleman (Bryden) point hockey!
Don’t forget Etienne Desmarto, Olympic gold medalist (in St. Louis in 1904) in the… Hammer throw! A park that has its name in Rosemont.
Jean Simon Frenet
Henri Cochet, tennis player.
We could also have added Will Power in IndyCar.
I think of cyclist Arnaud Demarie. You have to do it, have such a name on the starting line or when launching a breakaway.
Anne Marie Girard
Funny, this article, but I couldn’t miss the opportunity to remind you that arguably the most defining name has to be Usain Bolt, the fastest man on the planet. Bolt = lightning fast.
Most Appreciated Name: Olympic fencer Sandra Sassin.
In 2005, Byrdie Kim won the women’s golf tournament at the US Open. Not bad as a predetermined name.
