Here's a couple of starters:

George O'Connor kneeling down in prayer immediately after the final whistle in the 1996 All Ireland Hurling Final. He'd finally secured a winners' medal in the 17th and final year of his Wexford career - battered, bloodied but victorious -

Oh Artur Boruc, the Holy Goalie - he hates the Huns,
He blessed himself at Ibrox and the Huns went off their nut,
He's off his fooking rocker and he says,
GOD BLESS THE POPE -

My favourite is Oskar Camenzind crossing the line in Valkenburg at the 1998 Cycling World Championships, head bowed and covered in muck, looking absolutely spent. It's a Graham Watson photo.
Can't find it though.

Larry Duff, Balbec, Rock and Turenne might know it.

My second favourite is this:
