As tragic as the events were that unfolded at the Boston Marathon on Monday, this was not the first time a major sporting event has been negatively impacted by an act of terrorism. In fact, this wasn’t even the first time a marathon had been impacted by an act of terrorism. All across the globe, sport unites and inspires. Thus, unfortunately, it will always be a target for evil people looking to inflict pain, division, and turmoil.
Today, while we remember and pray for all those still suffering as a result of the tragic bombings in Boston, let’s also remember some of the others who have suffered as the result of terrorist attacks on sporting events.
