    These are my picks for American AOY's. These are the key stats of my picks!

    Stuczynski:

    - She moved to #2 All-Time on world list (highest of all active americans)
    - Has won 5 consecutive U.S. Titles (6-overall)
    - She broke the American Record 4x since May 07: 2x this year included AR at Olympic Trials in Eugene
    - Behind only Isinbayeva (best all-time) without Isi, Stuczynski is indoor world champ, Olympic champ and would have broken world record 3x's.
    - Won Visa Outdoor Championship
    - She gets my pick as American AOY

    Merritt:

    - Won U.S. Olympic trials
    - Provides the greatest American rivalry for this season and provides one of the greatest world rivalries this year!

    Now _that_ is an interesting fact. Even more interesting: If we discount
    ``new'' events, the situation is similar for the rest of the world.
    (With the long distance events as border-line cases for ``new''.)
    Men's jumps, throws, and middle-distance are again similar world-wide.

    But enough with the off-topic ramblings.

      I'll go with Clay and Jennski.

      Clay's season was short but dominant (moreso than LM's), and the Dec OG title is still #1 in my book.

        How is this relevant for Athlete of the Year?

          I agree with Clay, but SBT is my choice for women. OG win equals everything else IMHO & SBT placed well in all other meets ending with WAF.
          none
