RE: So an undefeated collegiate woman who won an Olympic silver medal isn't the NCAA track AOY - a non Olympian is?
Message
No doubt the silver medal is a superior performance. As a 100 meter sprinter you clearly have more events to choose and... it's a silver medal!

That said, the athlete that won the 200 meters and scored more points in the NCAA Championship should be the track athlete of the year.

Tim Tebow won the Heisman, but he did not go #1 in the NFL draft. So one might argue the "Athlete of the Year" was not the best player. It is just the way it goes.
