Mr. & Mrs. Congeniality of the T&F

Normally open July 4th only---the one day a year when partisan politics, religion, etc. are acceptable topics on this Board (within reason). The forum is now closed.

Mr. & Mrs. Congeniality of the T&F

Postby richxx87 » Fri Jul 04, 2008 5:28 pm

I've read many posts where people say 'this guy is an arrogant SOB', 'that gal is un-coachable because of her attitude problem' etc...

But lately, especially with the likes of Gay and Felix, it seems there are a lot of really decent, humble people tearing up the track...

So ... among elite current athletes around the world, who would you pick for the male and female Congeniality awards.

My picks, without knowing them personally, are:

In the world Division

1. Kluft
2. Geb

in the US Division

1. Felix
2. Gay

Others of you know many of these people personally, so I'd be interested in your opinions.

Of course I don't "know" these people but fun question!


Female-Angela Whyte

Male- Gary Reed


Sanya Richards (Deena Kastor seems very nice too)

Ryan Wilson 8-)


Kluft is wonderful but seems shy (nothing wrong with that but keeps her from being Miss Congeniality)

What the heck I will say Lebedeva-she seems to have a great personality

Andreas Thorkildsen

One of the finest people I have had the pleasure of spending a bit of time with is Joaquim Cruz. What a class act.
JJK is my all round nicest person in the sport EVER-based on no personal interaction. :oops: :D

Sanya Richards seems very nice as does Susanna Kallur.
