Occasionally we have the privilege of seeing an athlete or achiever who 
displays such a freakish level of ability that s/he becomes effectively 
unbeatable throughout the major phase of their career. Armstrong is one 
such and whatever the level of team assistance or his personal 
character, that is undeniable. It is a privilege to watch him and in 
Dean's position I might have forgotten to take the shot. Awesome thing 
it must be to have been there.
There see to be a few holders of this 'Bradman trophy' at present apart 
from the entire Australian cricket team (you ready guys?) - Rossi, V.,  
Schumacher M., Ansel Adams come to mind.
