Sportskeeda Awards 2015: Best Individual Performance of the Year - Slide 1 of 9

2015 saw a number of record-breaking and breathtaking performances but which was the best?

As another year comes to an end, Sportskeeda decided to look back and revisit the best sporting moments of the year which took our breath away, made us stand up and applaud or simply made our jaws drop at the sheer spectacle we witnessed in various sporting arenas. With so many different performances to choose from, we simply could no™t decide who gets the ultimate prize.

And so, we decided to ask our viewers to pick one from our list instead. Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli took home the prize in 2014 for his twin centuries against Australia. Who will it be in 2015?

Remember to VOTE at the end of the slideshow.

Compiled with inputs from various Sportskeeda editors

#1 Football: Robert Lewandowski scores five goals in nine minutes

Robert Lewandowski scored five goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg

22 September It was half-time in the Bundesliga match between Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg and Pep Guardiola’s team were losing 1-0. The Spanish manager decided to shake things up at half-time and introduced Robert Lewandowski as a half-time substitute. 

Six minutes into the second half, Lewandowski equalised and the score read 1-1. Less than eight minutes later, Bayern were leading 5-1 with all goals coming from the Polish striker!

Wolfsburg couldn’t believe it, the fans couldn’t believe it, even Guardiola himself couldn’t believe it as he clutched his face and looked on in utter disbelief.

In doing so, Lewandowski got his first hat-trick for Bayern Munich and also set a number of records – including the fastest hat-trick in Bundesliga history, the first substitute to score five goals in Bundesliga history and the first person to score the fastest four goals (and five goals) in a match!
