Lightbulb Sportswoman of the year!

Jennifer was named Laureus sportswoman of the year tonight in Monaco, a year after picking up the comeback title. Jennifer beat Venus Williams to the title, along with some other women who I can't remember.

I'll post a story about this when I can be bothered. What a day, a win in Rome for the first time in 9 years and now Sportswoman of the Year. Way to go Jen!

There's not much to be found apart from the official site which carries this:

French and Australian Open tennis champion Jennifer Capriati won the Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year title from compatriot Venus Williams, record-breaking pole-vaulter Stacy Dragila, multiple world champion Dutch swimmer Inge de Bruijn and Swedish golfer Annika Sorenstam

It's a shame that after all the discussion about Jennifer's fashion statements, we will have been denied the chance to see her in a lovely party frock, or something similar. Last year's ceremony was a week later and so Jennifer was there in Monaco to collect her award wearing the harem dress. Maybe she would have worn the blue dress anyway...

This *somewhat* softens of the blow of the Montreal hockey team getting massacred last night and eliminated from the playoffs

Snuffkin, perhaps they did a pre-taped video and Jen got to accept the award in her beloved blue dress afterall??

Heads up for Brits...last year BBC breakfast news had a feature on it, so if anyone is up early enough to catch brekkie news tomorrow, maybe we'll see it. Also, Channel 5 showed the full ceremony a month or two after the event, so perhaps I'll email them and ask them if they have any plans to broadcast it this year.

I think because of her lack of an appearance, there is very little being made of her award, as opposed to Michael Schumacher who was present.

Well I'll be darned! I didn't even know she was up for it!!! That's super!!!!

What event was it that she wore the "rainbow blue" dress with her brother?

Glad the pole vaulter didn't win. Sure she may have some records but only because there's like 2 women pole vaulters in the world - they keep trading the WR back and forth (guess Dragilia happens to have it now....)

Congrats Jen! Erm not sure when the rainbow dress was worn, I thought it was at those awards but then she wore the one that is available as your avatar last year (I think). Oh so confusing!
