Academy Athlete of the Year 2006

01.12.2006 | Tennis

As you know Roger won the award of the United States Sports Academy Athlete of the Year in 2005. He was presented the medal on center court at the NASDAQ 100 Open in Miami in March this year.

Well, Roger will again appear on the ballot for the Academy Athlete of the Year presented by USATODAY.com and MSNBC.com. The vote begins today and runs until December 25.


The Academy Athlete of the Year ballot is the culmination of the Academy’s yearlong Athlete of the Month program, which recognizes the accomplishments of men and women in any sport around the globe. The Academy’s Athlete of the Month is selected by an international voting committee comprised of former athletes, media, sports organizations and governing bodies.


Next to Roger, the 2006 male ballot includes South Korean speed skater Hyun-Soo Ahn, Ethiopian runner Kenenisa Bekele, Italian soccer star Fabio Cannavaro, American NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson, American golfer Phil Mickelson, American swimming star Michael Phelps, Major League Baseball All Star Albert Pujols, Heisman Trophy candidate Troy Smith, American basketball player Dwyane Wade, American golfer Tiger Woods and American football player Vince Young.



Help Roger take home the award for the second time by placing your vote!
