What are the wow moments in sport where you can say I was there?

My list is:

1999 world cup cricket semi final at Edgbasten, Alan Donald, Lance Clusner run out
2005 Ashes at Edgbasten, Freddy bowling on the Saturday
Kevin Peiterson hitting the switch hit vs Sri lanka
The Peter Crouch robot

2016 - Kyle Larson #42 Takes his first Nascar cup win in Michigan USA

1999 Champ Car PPG series... - California Speedway - Greg Moore was killed - Turn 2 inside wall heavy impact , His family were in the crowd with us , they did not tell the drivers and they completed the race - Shocking !!

Portugal win the Euros in Paris - France , we qualified through the group stages without winning a game beating France in the final 0-1 , Portugal's first ever Major Trophy -

Seeing the tower in Portuguese colours was awesome =D

Attending my son's cup match against another primary, yes, primary school. It wasn't a 'wow' moment, more a 'Jesus Christ' moment. Over a trivial foul, parents watching the game started the most violent punch up, men AND women. I never went to another game after that.

Mine's gotta be when David Beckham scored a last-gasp goal for England against Greece at Old Trafford in a World Cup Qualifier in 2001. It meant we had qualified for the following year's World Cup in Japan & South Korea. He was the only England player on the day to perform at all...he was head and shoulders above everyone else on the pitch. His now semi-legendary free-kick goal with just a few seconds of the match left was a joy to behold. I was there. For me, it's undeniably one of those "where were you?" moments.

There were some good natured swansea fans drinking in our pub last year.
One of the ladys couldnt have been used to the non fizzy cider, she crapped herself, and she was wearing white jeans.
This bloke gave her his jumper to tie around her waist, very gentlemanly i thought, chances are he wont be seeing that again.
She still went to the game though, so credit were its due.
