Sporting Champion of the Year

03.01.2008 | Off Court

Roger has been voted the world’s Top Sporting Champion of the Year by the International Sports Press Association (AIPS). It is the third year in a row at the top of the poll for our World No 1.


AIPS members from 94 nations voted in this year’s poll placing Roger overwhelmingly in the number one place beating Brazilian footballer Kakà (Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite) who plays for Italian Serie A team A.C. Milan  and won this year’s  Ballon d’Or and FIFA World Player of the Year awards. 100 metre world record holder, Jamaican sprinter Asafa Powell followed in third place.


World No 1 and 2007 French and US Open winner Justine Henin who is currently preparing for the Australian Open Tournament beat Swedish athletics star Carolina Klüft and Croatian World Champion high jumper Blanka Vlasic for the AIPS top female honour.


2007 Champions League trophy holders A.C. Milan were voted Team of the Year, followed by 2007 Rugby World Cup winners South Africa and Formula One Team Ferrari.

I forgot surfing. Isn't that the ultimate sport? In my next life, I am going to be a surfer (or a seal or something). And swimming is awesome too.
