The coronavirus pandemic has brought the sports world to a halt.

Well, maybe not quite all of it. People are still running and fishing and biking and playing golf. There’s video games and pool basketball and croquet and I don’t even know what else.

Which is where you come in.

With no major professional/college/high school sports to cover, we want to document readers’ best athletic achievements during the pandemic. Run a fast 5K around the neighborhood? Bike farther than you ever have? Destroy your spouse in cornhole? Make up your own sport? Let us know!

We’re using the word “athletic” as loosely as possible, given our circumstances. No achievement is too small, no sport too silly.

Share your proudest moments with me at mbaker@tampabay.com or on Twitter @MBakerTBTimes.
