  • Bolt - TFN Athlete of Year

    No big surprise at Bolt being chosen Athlete of Year.
    Was a bit surprised to see Clay at #4 and Merritt at #5. Some had suggested that there would be no US men in top 10. Can infer from this that Bryan Clay is US Athlete of Year.
    Noticed that Gebrasallasie had a comfortable lead over Wanjuri in AOY voting. If same people are ranking marathon, they will be in that order?

    Geb also has a high ranking in the 10.

        Rono, '78 and Johnson, '96. That's mentioned in the story linked on the home page.

          I'm guessing--given the source--that that was meant as a trivia question.

            That didn't occur to me (obviously). I assumed he just hadn't opened the link.

            If you were right, you should have just deleted my post.

              Nope, it wasn't a trivia quiz. I posted without having looked at the link.

              But it would have been a good one.

                OK, so who are the three women?

                  Florence Joyner-Griffin, Jackie Joyner Kersee, Marita Koch?

                    I assume Marion Jones would have done that at least once, unless her AOY status was retroactively nullified.

                          How about Irena Szewenska(sp?), Heike Dreschler, and Paula Radcliffe?

                            Well, I looked and I would definitely not have been able to remember the first one and not the second either. The third one, yes.
