With the decade drawing to a close, Yahoo! Sports examines the events and stories that defined the sporting world over the last 10 years.

It could be a championship, a dramatic performance, a controversy … perhaps even a fight with fans.

Meanwhile, which athletes dominated their sport? Which teams shockingly fell short? Which games and individual plays immediately became etched in the sports consciousness?

It’s all here.

Our crew has shared its picks for the biggest story of the decade in each sport. Now it's up to you to determine which is the biggest of the last 10 years across all sports.

The top candidates are listed here. Sure, there are other deserving stories, but some had to miss the cut. The idea here was to take one story each from a variety of sports and pit them against one another.
