Across all of sport, the best champions lose.
Some endure defeat from the start, working constantly to improve and finally seal the deal right at the end of their careers - walking off into a golden sunset. Others win immediately, but finally lose their grip on what should be their last, greatest moment. And some find success and failure intertwined throughout their endeavours.
Sprinter Usain Bolt lost his final race. American Football player Tom Brady finally looks like he can't prevail if the odds are stacked against him. And, back in 2006, Michael Schumacher missed out on an eighth Formula 1 world title just after he'd finally announced his golden era with Ferrari would end.
