After a head-on collision left him in a coma with a ruptured artery, 16 crushed ribs, a punctured lung, a broken sternum, a both dislocated and broken hip and pelvis, and a leg fracture, the outlook was grave for Larkhall Athletic manager Wayne Thorne. Unresponsive in the coma for a week, Thorne's wife Amanda, whispered the result of his team's match against Bridport.
"Honey, we won," said Amanda. As the words registered, Thorne incredibly awoke from the coma.
It a great story, and is why Wayne Thorne is our Best Person in Sports.
