Some took the gold right under the nose of many aspiring sporting spirits whereas others got the spotlight for being quite eccentric in their own way. Here are the top twelve moments that stood out in the world sporting events which made headlines this year, as reported by Bikash Singh for Yahoo.

1: The highs and lows of the champions is just the part of the game, they have to deal with. But its important to keep a watch on what they turn into with the wins and loses.
