By Andrew KrammerThe Triple Crown is the sports equivalent of a triple-header: three consecutive championships in the same season.
The first was in 1900, the last in 1932.
The Triple Crown was created in 1932 to keep the competition balanced between men’s and women’s golf, tennis, and basketball.
The sport has never had a championship since then, but the idea of the Triple Crown hasn’t gone away.
We are all familiar with the sport’s traditional rivalry between the U.S. and Canada, or the U-23 men’s national team, or even between the NBA and MLB.
But, according to ESPN Stats & Info, the Triple Championship is more than just a sport.
It’s a way for athletes to have their voices heard and, at the same time, to be rewarded for their efforts.
When it comes to the Triple Triple-Crown, the sport of basketball is a great example.
With a win or a loss, the players are given the opportunity to make their case for the title.
In tennis, there are many other options: the French Open, Wimbledon, and the French championship are just a few of the majors.
But, for most of us, the Grand Slam is where we can make our case.
It’s a great feeling to win, to put yourself in the spotlight, to earn the respect of your fans and the fans of your team.
And, of course, the greatest prize in the sport is the Triple-Grand Slam title.
In other words, it’s a very rewarding sport to play.
