Maria Voted Academy Female Athlete Of The Year

Quote:
Maria has been voted Academy Female Athlete of the Year after a worldwide online fan vote presented by USATODAY.com and MSNBC.com. The ballot was open from 1-25 December.

Here is what Maria had to say after coming on top: "It is a great honor to be voted Female Athlete of the Year. What makes it more special is that has been decided by fans. So thank you to everyone that voted for me"

The Academy Athlete of the Year presented by USATODAY.com and MSNBC.com is the culmination of the Academy's yearlong Athlete of the Month program, which recognizes the accomplishments of men and women in sports around the globe.

The United States Sports Academy is an independent, non-profit, accredited, special mission sports university created to serve the nation and the world with programs in instruction, research and service. The role of the Academy is to prepare men and women for careers in the profession of sports.

Roger Federer was voted Outstanding Athlete of the Year and Tiger Woods won Academy Male Athlete of the year.

She is hotter than Justine, no question about that. Though not as hot as Kournikova. But fact is that she's number 2, not 1. Yes, she did a grand slam, but so did justine and she's even played all grand slam finals. I'm not her number 1 fan, but Justine does deserve the athlete of the year award over Masha

Re: Maria Voted Academy Female Athlete Of The Year

it was decided by fans not by rankings who's fault is that Justine doesn't have so many to vote for her ! at least they didn't vote for someone low ranked that was my opinion and she wasn't choosed because of her looks cause we all know she's not that pretty ,just overrated ..

i agree, im not a fan of maria OR justine in fact i prefere maria, but justine's results this year have been remarkale! reaching all four grandslams and winning lots of tournaments, sharapova has also been consistent but no so much as justine.And yes, i think the fact that justine is number one not shaerapova says it all, sharapova had her chance to become number 1 in the YEC SF. but justine thought through it, to me that deserves to be voted the female athelte of the year!

Re: Maria Voted Academy Female Athlete Of The Year

Looks and body language are important.
A writer in the NYDaily News has been goofing on Yuri-

Yuri Sharapov accepts role as the Soup Nazi in new Broadway musical. Without advice from her father in the player's box, Maria Sharapova eats wrong fruit during changeover at the U.S. Open, breaks out in rash.

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/st...p-407856c.html


YURI SHARAPOV
There have been worse tennis fathers in this world, but Yuri is starting to drive us crazy with his tantrums and his coaching of his daughter, Maria Sharapova, from the player's box. The silliness reached a fruity crescendo at the U.S. Open this September, when Yuri and a trainer kept signaling down below at the teenager to eat her bananas. Yuri won't communicate with the press, beyond a snarl. Poor Maria found herself talking about the banana nearly as much as her second major championship.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
