Actually, in all fairness, and maybe it is my Melbourne "bigheadedness" speaking, but aside from maybe Paris, no city can boast the sporting culture or history that Melbourne can. It's hard to argue against Melbourne being the sporting captial of the world. Vast amounts of evidence.

Australian Open - Grand Slam tennis tournament. Only in Paris, New York, London and Melbourne!

Melbourne Cup Carnival - a globally recognised and esteemed horse racing carnival.

An entire code of football is centered around this city, AFL. And not only that, the code's professional league has the 4th highest average regular season attendance of any sporting league in the world. Most matches are fixtured in Melbourne.

Olympic Games 1956

F1 - we have a race, only about 20 global cities can boast this,

Melbourne's sporting precinct (includes the MCG - few stadiums have as much history as this, only Berlin's Olympiastadion the Maracana, and probably a few more might contend with it), a precinct still growing.

We've very recently hosted a World Swimming Championships, a World Gymnastics Championships and next year host the Cycling World Championships.

We're probably gonna host the World Cup Final in 2022.

- dontcha just wish you were VIC like me!

Man, I'm sorry, and I know we're all biased here, but that really doesn't seem like that impressive a list of accomplishments/evidence for Melbourne being the sporting capital of the world. I have no doubt that it is a terrific sports city with a rich history, but I'm sure that a dozen other cities across the world could boast an equal or even better list than the one you posted above.
