61 Bob Champion And Aldaniti's Comeback

Number 61 from the channel 4 show 100 Greatest Sporting Moments,English jump jockey Bob Champion made headlines in 1981 when he recovered from testicular cancer to reach the pinnacle of his sport.

Champion had been diagnosed with the disease in 1979 but he bounced back two years later when he rode Aldaniti - who had also recovered from a career-threatening injury - to Grand National success.

Champion then went onto further success in the Hennessey Cognac Gold Cup and the Whitbread Trial Chase, was made an MBE and saw his story committed to celluloid in the film Champion, which starred John Hurt and Aldaniti himself.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100 certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
