    Lists like these could have 50 different names on it. I wish people wouldn't overreact by saying: "if X isn't here, I'm unsubbing" or someone complaining that a Canadian RUclip channel has a North American perspective. I'm sure a UK RUclip channel would have a ton of Soccer (football) entries on it.

    I forget her name, but there was a Japanese tennis player who was said to be one of the greats of her generation but ankle issues forced her to retire young before she could get to her full potential. It wasn't all bad for her, she became a world renowned doctor and is as famous today for her feats in the medical field as she was for her tennis potential in her youth.

    Tim Richmond was one of the top Nascar drivers during the mid-1980's, and he probably would have become of the greatest drivers of all time, but his reckless lifestyle off the race track would eventually catch up to him and he died of AIDS at the age of 34.

    Where's Jonah Lomu? Youngest 'All Black' ever at just 19 years old. He was incredible. He should have had a huge career, but only got 1994-2003, having to retire due to serious kidney disorder. He later had a transplant, but ultimately died in 2015, aged just 40.
    Where's Phillip Hughes? Scored his first representative cricket century at just 12 years old. One of the youngest ever to represent his state (New South Wales) in first class cricket (19 years), called up to the Australian test cricket team a few months shy of 21, and scored his first test century in the second test of that series. Had his career cut short thanks to a cricket ball to the neck causing a vertebral artery dissection. He died just 3 days before his 26th birthday.
