by Stevens, Dakota

Overview -
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1990s saw 21-year-old golfer Tiger Woods win the Masters Tournament by a record 12 strokes; becoming both the youngest and the first American of multiracial descent to win the Masters.
Major League Baseball players went on strike in August 12, 1994, thus ended the season, canceled the World Series the first time in 90 years, and went on until March 29, 1995.
American NBA Basketball player Michael Jordan became a major sports and pop culture icon idolized by millions worldwide. He revolutionized sports marketing through deals with companies such as Gatorade, Hanes, McDonald's and Nike. American cyclist Lance Armstrong won his first Tour de France in 1999, less than two years after battling testicular cancer. American boxer George Foreman regained the world Heavyweight title, twenty years after losing it to Muhammad Ali, by knocking out Michael Moorer in ten rounds in 1994, also becoming the oldest boxer to win the world Heavyweight title. The Denver Broncos won their first Super Bowl title in 1997 against the Green Bay Packers 31-24 and again in 1998 defeating the Atlanta Falcons 34-19.
Manchester United won an unprecedented treble of the English premier league, FA cup and Champions League after defeating Bayern Munich 2-1 in May 1999.
This book is an overview of the year 1996 in sports with a highlight on Football, Soccer, Baseball, Basketball, Figure Skating, the Summer Olympics, and the champions who shined that year including Todd Eldredge, Michelle Kwan, and John Wetteland.
