This is laughably advertised as a contest to find the greatest sportsman or -woman, but why do no women feature??
Carolina Kluft is an astonishing physical specimin and has been utterly dominant in her event for a considerable time, despite her relative youth. Kluft gets my vote!
(By the way, I'm a man)
Have we forgotten the likes of - Floyd Mayweather and Joe Calzaghe (arguably the best pound for pound boxers), Tanni Grey Thompson (best female paralympian ever). Ian Thorpe - best male swimmer this side of wordl war 2 in my opinion.
I defnitely disagree with Federer getting the award, although he is an excellent athlete. I do agree with the person above who suggested Carolina Kluft but she does not get my vote. I would vote either Jessica Kurten of showjumping or else the phenomenal Paolo Maldini of football.
