From the White Sox World Series to the return of Tiger Woods, Kidzworld looks at some of the top sports moments of 2005.

Armstrong Wins the Tour Again

Lance Armstrong ended his legendary cycling career by winning his seventh straight Tour de France. The Tour is one of the most gruelling races of any kind in the world, which makes Armstrong's victories even more impressive. Armstrong's seven straight wins at the Tour de France is a feat that will likely never be matched - making Armstrong one of America's all-time athletic greats.

Tiger Returns

Tiger Woods returned to the top of the golfing world in 2005 by winning the British Open and the Masters. The victories gave Tiger a total of 10 major golfing titles and proved that that he's in a class by himself on the golf course.

White Sox World Series

The Chicago White Sox won their first World Series title in nearly 90 years and ended one of the longest championship droughts in sports history. The White Sox finished with the best record in the American League and went 11-1 in the playoffs, including a four game sweep of the Houston Astros in the World Series. Now if only that other baseball team from Chicago could find a way to win...

New England's Super Bowl Dynasty

The New England Patriots became just the second team to win three Super Bowls in four years with their 24-21 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX. Led by quarterback Tom Brady and a rock solid defence, the Pats established themselves as one of the greatest teams in NFL history. Will 2006 see the first ever Super Bowl threepeat?

Danica's Driving
Danica Mania came alive in 2005, as Danica Patrick became the first woman to lead the Indianapolis 500. Although Patrick would end up finishing fourth in the Indy 500, she became an instant sports celebrity and appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Some drivers complained that Danica was overhyped and her small size made it easier for her to race. But Danica also proved that a female can compete among the top racers in the world and she's expected to be a force on the racetrack in 2006.
