Amazing story about Leicester City F.C.

Summary of the story: Leicester City F.C. is a small soccer club in British Premier League. They only got into the league after 13-14 season. In 14-15 season, they almost got demoted. They were at the bottom after 29 of 38 games. But against all odds, they started their crazy come back, won 7 of the rest 9 games and survived. The unbelievable part is in 15-16 season. Because their performance was not that great in 14-15 season, their odds of winning the champion, according to some sports gambling company, was 5000:1 . They also got a new manager (head coach) that was not considered a good choice by most. They do not have tons of money to buy any super stars. Their main striker Jamie Vardy was still playing non-league soccer in 2012. However, against all odds, including the 5000:1 by the gambling company, they won the champion leading second 10 points. Jamie Vardy also broke the record of score most in consecutive games.

I’m not a huge soccer fan so I only learn this story today. It is really amazing. It’s a classic underdog story. I really feel inspired by it. Some high school teacher even put sign in class room to encourage students saying “If Leicester City can win the champion, you can do anything.”
