Jakob did not deserve to be on the list.
He goes home devastated
Lyles should win this easily.
The only distance athlete is a marathoner who has never even set foot on a track…we need Jakob.
Better Kiptum than Kipchoge at least.
Tough competition to be sure. I’d put Jakob on the list over Chopra. Lyles and Chopra are the only ones on the list who didn’t break a world record, but Lyles won triple gold and put up another top 10 all-time mark in the 200. Chopra does not have a top 10 all-time mark in the javelin, and he didn’t even have the top mark in that event this year.
Chopra got in because he has a huge social media following. He has no business in the top 5.
Nuts. Jakob had an historic year.
Jav, Pole Vault, Shot put. Vs. miler/5k guy
Allowing the public to vote on these awards just turns them into a popularity contest.
Jakob is nominated for Pokémaster of the year, mainly for his contributions to finding up the optimal moveset and EV-training for the tanky Garchomp strat in gen 9.
You may think this is some dull feat, but I can assure you it's kind of a big deal.
The only hero is Kiptum, most of the others look "artificial".
Dosent seems to be the case for Jakob in LRC.
I don't see a problem with this. The athlete of the year should be able to win gold in his primary event.
Ingetits obsessed go home devastated.
i hate this sort of stuff because some of these events have way less competition than the distance running (or sprinting). It is safe to say that if literally everyone tried to make it as a distance runner/sprinter, there still wouldn't be many/any better than Kiptum, Ingebrigtsen and Lyles in their respective events. But you can't tell me that in the field events that draw from a ridiculously small pool athletes like Crouser, Mondo and Chopra wouldn't be swamped by talents that possibly haven't even heard of those events.
Shows you how legit this award is. Pure clown show for the circus.
0 respect for this organization
PV and jav, maybe. Crouser is almost literally unbelievable, though. Not too many going to compete with him IMHO.
I sense racism against Jakob
The Better. Jakob doesn't deserve to be on the list !!!! PERIOD!!!
I'm so happy
