    Sorry, but I had to desert the sport and vote for Annika. Plus, she gave me an autographed golf ball last summer when she was in Indy for the Solheim Cup.

    I'd like to see Kajsa take it after a fantastic comeback from serious injury. Then again, looking beyond my love for T&F, Anja Paerson may be a better candidate...

    Speedway is only popular in a few countries, so I would say a world title in it isn't worth all that much (and, even though I happen to come from one of those few countries, I find it totally boring).

    It has to be Rickardsson - he is pictured three times in your post. (Or does that split his vote three ways??)

    Bragging Rites? Are they going to marry or bury the winner?

    I say Caro!! Which gives her 100% and everyone one else 0%!!

    2005 SWEDISH PERFORMER-OF-THE-YEAR

    Bragdguldet - the prize handed out by Svenska Dagbladet - is up for grabs tonight here in Sweden.

    This is the night-of-nights for sports stars and fans alike across the country. Tonight, one athlete will win bragging honors as the 2005 Performer-of-the-Year.

    Who among the choices below, in your opinion, had the best 2005 season?


    Bergqvist, Rickardsson, Pärson


    Rickardsson, Sörenstam, Klüft

    Kajsa Bergqvist: Came back to top form after her achilles injury shut down her 2004 season. Won every competition she entered in 2005, along with her first-ever World outdoor high jump title, and made two good attempts at a WR-height of 2,10m in the competition. Had an incredible seven 2,00m clearances in 14 competitions.

    Tony Rickardsson: Speedway king who won Bragdguldet in 1999. Rickardsson took home his sixth World Champs gold in huge fashion... is being likened to New Zealand:s Ivan Mauger in speedway history as those with the most World Champs gold medals.

    Anja Pärson: Pärson:s 2005 Alpine season was fantastic: World Champs gold in super-G and slalom, silver in combination racing, a victory in the combined-points world cup - and her career:s first huge race victory. Furthermore, she won world-cup competitions in all disciplines in the same season.

    Annika Sörenstam: One of her best years ever on the LPGA tour with 10 victories; even won two of four majors - Nabisco and LPGA-final. One victory on the European tour (Scand TPC). Earlier merits: 56 victories on the USA-tour, of which seven are majors: 1995, 1996, 2001, 2002 , 2 in 2003, 2004.

    Carolina Klüft: Klüft won this award in 2003. Klüft followed up her bragging rights by winning the Olympic Gold medal in 2004, European Indoor gold in 2005 and her second-straight Heptathlon World Outdoor title in Helsinki with a gutsy 800m PB performance capping off her hep competition.

    Fan pollling opened 24-November on Svenska Dagbladet:s homepage. Rickardsson is the internet fan favorite (15.305 votes) leading into tonight:s gala:



    The past 10 winners:

    1995: Annika Sörenstam, golf
    1996: Agnetta Andersson and Susanne Gunnarsson, canoe
    1997: Ludmila Engquist, track & field
    1998: National Team, handboll
    1999: Tony Rickardsson, speedway
    2000: Lars Frölander, swimming
    2001: Per Elofsson, xc skiing
    2002: Susanne Ljungskog, cycling
    2003: Carolina Klüft, track & field
