2005 Outstanding Athlete of the Year

27.12.2005 | Off Court

Roger was the top overall vote getter and was named the 2005 Outstanding Athlete of the Year by the United States Sports Academy after a world-wide internet election hosted by USATODAY.com.

 

Lance Armstrong was named Male Athlete of the Year for the second straight year, while race car driver Danica Patrick was named Female Athlete of the Year. Female voters outnumbered male voters by a 2-to-1 ratio during the first week of voting in an election that ran from Dec. 1-24. This gave Patrick a lead she would not relinquish. Overall, the ballot received tens of thousands of votes from sports fans around the globe.

 

The Athlete of the Year is the culmination of the Sports Academy's yearlong Athlete of the Month program, which recognizes the accomplishments of men and women in any sport around the globe on a monthly basis. USSA holds online voting for the Athlete of the Month in which an international voting committee comprised of former athletes, media, sports organizations and governing bodies.

 

Thanks to everyone for placing your votes!
