#GameChanger - Style and Expectation
Game Changer moments will vary from sport to sport, but there's one thing they all have in common - they will change the expectations and style of that sport. Join the #GameChanger Tribe to add your favourite.
Before Babe Ruth, baseball was all about stolen bases; the home run was something of a spectacle amongst play of strategic caution. Babe Ruth acted as a huge Game Changer, hitting 712 home runs over his career, it's no wonder that baseball picked up enormous popularity in the 1920s.
Think there's a bigger influence on baseball out there? Share who it is in the discussion.
Not one, but seven perfect 10 scores in the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games. It was supposed to be impossible - to the point where the Games organizers only had 3 digits on the scoreboard! When Nadia scored her first perfect 10, the scoreboard actually read as a perfect 1.00.
This Game Changer has also been supported by Tribesports user Anne Margaret S:
"I was a competitive gymnast at the time, that summer changed me - what perfection, what grace, what beauty and what determination and quiet confidence to just present to the world her skills. I never reached her beauty or grace but I will never forget, as I feel right now as I type, the emotion of the sport that I truly love!"
Jonah Lomu is a Game Changer for changing the expectation of what a player can be in rugby; yes, they may be big; yes, they may be strong; yes, they may tilt the scales at 275lb. But the combination of power, speed and size made Jonah Lomu an unstoppable force on the rugby pitch. Lomu's dominance changed what teams looked for in their wingers, it was no longer enough to have a fast man on the wing, there needed to be a defensive force as well as attacking.
"He was the first to get mass endorsements. Look at the amount of islanders in international teams prior, look at the amount of islanders in international teams follow. Size of backs before he came along. Size of backs after him. No one has ever impacted rugby like Jonah Lomu." - Daniel H's argument for why Jonah Lomu is the biggest Game Changer in rugby.
