Who was the first to do all sorts of things?
93% of Americans don't know all of these sports firsts.
Sports history is littered with people who were the first to accomplish something in their respective fields -- many of whom hold records still unsurpassed today. But how many of those sports firsts do you know by heart? Who was the first basketball player to score 100 points in a game? Who was the first hockey player to score over 200 points in a single season? Who was the first African-American coach to win a championship in a major North American sport? Who was the first football player to rush for 1000 yards and receive 1000 yards in the same season? Who was the first baseball player to play in 2000 consecutive games? Who was the first swimmer to win seven gold medals at a single Olympic Games?
So how many of those questions can YOU answer? Do you know all about the first time an athlete did something, or is your knowledge limited to "one time a baseball man hit a ball and did a thing?" You probably won't do as well as you think you will; people are rarely as smart about these things as they think they are. Think you can prove us wrong? Take our quiz and find out!
