Losing is tough. But losing also teaches valuable lessons that build character, encourage sportsmanship, and make people work harder. From basketball's king, LeBron James, to football's most valuable player, Tom Brady, even the best have been on the losing side. Perhaps that's how they got to be the best! Learn about winning and losing while reading about history's greatest sports victories and defeats.
