Bad, Worse and Worst: weird sports trophies
Sports – The term comes with epic fights, emotion, passion and great victories. Every game comes with a thirst for the win, and the hands on the trophy subsequently. Talking about trophies, the sports world has seen many beautiful pieces of art adorned by the winning side but there have been instances when the shape of the trophies was beyond anyone’s wildest imaginations. Here are some of the most innovative and out of the world trophies that were awarded.
A special plane for a special trophy
Trophies can be big, trophies can be small. But what can be bigger than a trophy that requires a special plane? The epic cricket rivalry between India vs Pakistan was marked with a huge DLF trophy in the year 2006 as a specially chartered plane was needed to bring that from Abu Dhabi. Phew !
The lost cap
Oh, how we wish we could find the bottle this cap belongs to. Seems like a supply for a whole year. Well, just to remind that it is a trophy for the winner of the Coca-Cola Sharjah Tri series of 1998 where Azharuddin receives the trophy for India.
Well, the weird window shaped golden thing is a trophy and not any ordinary one. It is the man of the match trophy of the FIFA World Cup, Jamez Rodriguez showing the ones he won.
DNA of cricket
No no, we don’t mean it neither nor is that a DNA structure. It is a trophy for Sri Lanka vs West Indies ODI series 2003. Lankan captain Marvan Atapattu is receiving it on behalf of the Sri Lankan side.
When you make calls from a trophy
And what more can we think of about the behind reasons of making a trophy? This trophy was made to commemorate the fault in telephone connection and is awarded in an American football match.
Bowl full of crabs
Another football match award but this time it is college football in America where a bowl full of crabs is the award, but sadly they are not as tasty as the ones on seafood platter as they are not real but just a part of the trophy.
I am a (lob)Ster
Talking about sea foods and the most amazing item to taste is a lobster. Well, trophies have that too. The Sylvania 300, held in Loudon, an event of NASCAR( National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing ) rewards the champion with a Lobster, but sadly not an edible one.
Hammering the opposition
The American football league has an array of weird trophies it seems as this Paul Bunyan Ax trophy given for college football matches has a shape of an actual ax. Want to axe the opponents, eh?
Weird trophies in tennis as well as here is this Acapulco Open tennis trophy in which the trophy given resembles a real pear. well, everything has art in it!
A healthy trophy
A trophy full of iron might not always mean the iron must be in real. The award given in The Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey is also full of iron, but edible iron. The trophy is, well, assorted bananas. Don’t believe? See it for yourself.
