Michael "The Albatross" Gross (1984)

Having a last name like Gross can really be bad. However, it always makes you feel better when a World-class athlete shares your name. West German Michael Gross was nicknamed "The Albatross" because of his massive wingspan (2.13m, which is equivalent to nearly 7ft). I kept this picture on my wall for nearly a decade!

  1. I am German. Actually, gross means tall or big in German. Just thought you needed to know. Not a bad name at all.
