2016 GoodSport Pictures of Year

2016 was a year unlike any other. The Chicago Cubs ended a 108-year championship drought when they beat the Cleveland Indians in a thrilling seven-game World Series. Less than five months earlier, the city of Cleveland earned its first world championship since 1964 when the Cavaliers knocked off the Golden State Warriors to capture the NBA title. This was also the year GoodSport launched three web sites: GoodSport Celebrates, Countdown90, and NewHotGood. All are dedicated to positive, educational, and entertaining content. GoodSport featured all that was good in sports, celebrating the accomplishments of athletes, both past and present. Our year in pictures highlights the power of sports while capturing the unforgettable moments between athletes, families, and fans. It’s not whether you win or lose, but how impeccable character is revealed when a competition begins and ends. Enjoy the 2016 GoodSport pictures of the year.
