WSJ Top Ten Athletes

0

The Wall Street Journal recently published a list of the Top 10 Athletes in the world. I was surprisingly shocked to see that not only did 3 tracksters make the list but the WSJ said that the number one athlete in the world was Roman Sebrle. Joining him was Liu Xiang in 7th and Jeremy Wariner in 8th. I’m not sure I fully agree with their rankings but (I think Sebrle’s claim to the number 1 spot was probably more appropriate in 2001 when he set the still standing world record in the Decathlon) it’s nice to see the track guys recognized.
