* Creator/SteveMcQueen's ''LeMans'' ends with the 24 hour race as a three car shootout on the last lap, and that is after the previous lead car retires on the penultimate lap. This was nearly TruthInTelevision though since the movie was made in 1970 and the 1969 race was a two car last lap shootout (see RealLife examples below).

** Something almost identical happened to time trial specialist Tony Martin in the 2013 Giro d'Italia. Martin, the world time trial champion, attacked at the start of the 175km 6th stage, led the entire stage, somehow kept the peloton back around 10 seconds behind in the final kilometers and was heart-breakingly caught with only 20-25 metres to go to the finish line. Happily however he did succeed with a similar breakaway in the 2014 Tour de France and won the stage.

* "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Underarm_bowling_incident_of_1981 The underarm incident]]" was a controversial incident in a cricket match between New Zealand and Australia, where Australia used the archaic ([[LoopholeAbuse but not illegal]]) underarm bowling technique to win the game off the very last ball. Downplayed, since it was unlikely that New Zealand batsman at the crease would have managed to hit the six necessary to tie the game anyway. He was the 10th batsman (i.e. 2nd worst batsman of the team), facing his first ball, at a venue famous for its large boundary.
