Sports events happen in 2020 without an audience

The world of sports is often perceived as being synonymous with healthy competition and fierce rivalry, but in recent years, many sports stars have begun to use their star power to do something much more important than winning championships - they're using it to make the world a better place by helping their fellow man. This list details some of the most famous sports stars who are also incredible humanitarians; they deserve our gratitude and admiration, and perhaps even our emulation in some cases!

Michael Jordan

A lot of what has been written about me is bulls--t. Just because I play basketball doesn't mean I'm not human. It doesn't mean I don't go through the same things other people go through, that I don't worry about who I am and if I measure up or not. People are always looking for answers to how you do it, why you do it, how you could play at your best when it seems like everything is against you. And all those people who claim they know what went on during my college career—whoever they are—know nothing more than speculations based on my performance in games. They don’t know why it was that way, or even if something actually happened.

Mia Hamm

She was an all-star on United States Women’s National Soccer Team for years and she has become one of Time Magazine’s Most Influential People in Sports. In addition, she holds Olympic gold medals from 1996 and 2004 and is also a two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup champion. Lastly, she helped create TeamFirst Soccer Academy (TFA), which teaches girls soccer training classes throughout San Diego County.

Martina Navratilova

That most elusive of victories... Winning Wimbledon, your first Grand Slam title, is one thing. Then you have to do it again. In my 20 years of professional tennis, I won Wimbledon nine times; my second victory followed only five months after my first. But it was seven years before I would win it for a third time and eight before I claimed it for a fourth.

Roberto Baggio

He was once asked by his doctor, How come you are always so happy?, After hearing that answer from him, it made me really think about how many times we go to bed angry or sad with someone. How much stress do we carry around in our bodies every day?

Pat Tillman

In 2002, Tillman gave up his pro football career with millions of dollars on his plate. Instead, he enlisted in the Army Rangers and became an Army Ranger Lead Climber. Tillman volunteered for duty as part of Operation Enduring Freedom after 9/11.

Wayne Gretzky

It’s all about skate, stick and puck—it’s not just what you do on the ice, it’s how you prepare. Whether you’re just beginning your fitness journey or have already been at it for years, every workout is only as good as its preparation. But Wayne Gretzky had a few more words of wisdom that apply here: You miss 100% of shots you don’t take.

Larry Fitzgerald Jr.

Off-Season Workout Plan : Most people assume that professional athletes take plenty of time off after their seasons are over. However, Larry Fitzgerald Jr. is an exception and has even been called one of toughest players in football. It’s obvious that hard work pays off, but what does it take to build enough stamina for an NFL player? In today’s post, we’ll reveal his diet and workout routine for getting more energy on game day and throughout training camp.

Serena Williams

A top tennis player who is getting ready for Wimbledon, Serena Williams says her secret to getting quality sleep is setting an alarm for each time she needs to wake up. As long as she gets up at these set times, she can go back to sleep with no problem. And with 10 minutes until bedtime, here’s how Williams spends her final moments before lights out: She rolls over, whispers good night and prays, Thank you so much for all of my blessings.

Tom Brady

Pre-game rituals: Not everyone is an NFL superstar, but anyone can learn from quarterback Tom Brady’s pre-game habits. For years, Brady has been known for his ability to quickly wind down and tune out distractions before an important game. And while it might seem like there’s nothing average workers can do to imitate their favorite star QB, there are small steps that can go a long way in helping us get some shuteye at night. One key tip?

Roger Federer

What can we learn from Federer? He rises at six or seven in the morning, and practices every day. No exceptions. The two-time Wimbledon champion also goes to bed between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.—which makes him an outlier among tennis players, whose schedule tends toward late nights and early mornings—and sleeps well for five hours before waking up once during his sleep cycle for a bathroom break.
