It is incredible like for somebody he is not the best athlete this year and for a lot of people he is perhaps the best sportman in the world in 2012.
In laureus award probably it will be a fight between Bolt and perhaps Messi.
That's debatable, he still ran a 100m faster than any other human in existance this year and won 3 Olympic golds.
yes eldanielfire, for me without doubt Bolt was the best athlete in the world, you are right.
And the best sportsman perhaps, i have doubts with Messi.
Ok Messi did not get a lot of tittles, but we are comparing individual sport(track and field, although exits relays) with collective sport.
So the individual performance of Messi this year was wonderful, almost perfect and for me with Bolt are the 2 best sportsman in the world in this 2012.
Umm if Phelps does not lose gold medal in the last metre with LeCos in 200 Butterfly ummm he would be in the fight too
