10 Tragic Sports-Related Deaths That Shocked Everyone


Sports tend to be great forms of exercise and entertainment for the masses, and most countries have their own own sports team or national team that represents them in a variety of sports. In any high level competition involving person-to-person contact, accidents can certainly happen. Unfortunately, there are also times when the Mafia has become involved in a sport in an effort to bet against the odds. When things like this happen, more often than not, we tend to see an accident occur. Here are ten instances of sports-related deaths that shocked us all.
