Who wrote this post? One of the brojos or somebody from Britain? I mean seriously, couldn't even change "football" to "soccer" for the majority forum audience (Americans)? Come on. :)
Also, the women's ranks:
1 - Simone Biles - gymnastics 524 (15.24%)
2 - Katinka HosszÃº - swimming 472 (13.73%)
3 - Serena Williams - tennis 361 (10.5%)
4 - Katie Ledecky - swimming 319 (9.28%)
5 - Almaz Ayana - athletics 279 (8.12%)
6 - Angelique Kerber - tennis 250 (7.27%)
7 - Genzebe Dibaba - athletics 160 (4.65%)
8 - Allyson Felix - athletics 149 (4.33%)
9 - Laura Trott - cycling 125 (3.64%)
10 - Lara Gut - alpine skiing 112 (3.26%)
Simone has been unbeatable in almost every aspect of her sport for a full Olympic cycle (2013-2016), and won just about every gold medal possible. An excellent choice. She deserved it. Felix, Dibaba, and Ayana were slightly vulnerable.
As for the guys, HOW THE F!!! WAS ELIUD KIPCHOGE NOT IN THE TOP 10? H3ll, the only reason Phelps is there is because of his comeback. By that logic, Kenenisa should be in contention, too.
Sad that the AIPS doesn't follow American football, either. I mean, Kalil Mack? Vonn Miller? Solid.
