Speak Up: Who's Your Favorite Current Athlete?

Spring and Summer are busy seasons in the wide world of sports, and the Olympics are just around the corner. Exciting competitions like Wimbledon and the US Open, not to mention the ongoing baseball season, definitely make for good entertainment.

The athletes are fun to watch and inspiring, too, so I was wondering . . .

Roger Federer (tennis), the incredible on-fire Rafa Nadal (tennis), the amazing new #1 seed Ana Ivanovic (tennis), and David Beckham (soccer), of course! Obviously I love tennis, always have and always will! :)

Kevin Garnett! I also have really enjoyed watching Rocco Mediate and Greg Norman. Venus and Serena at Wimbeldon? That was fantastic.

I'm loving Christian Vandevelde, who's currently in 6th place in Le Tour! (de France :] )He's so likeable (and cute), a great (cute) cyclist, and, ok, he's very cute. Don't tell my parents that's why I'm watching the tour this year!!!

Dara Torres is one of my least favorite cause I feel she is juicing. I was rooting for swimmer Hayley McGregory at Trials cause she got 3rd twice in 2004 and then she got 3rd twice this year too !! :[ So my favorites athletes are: Manny Malhotra (hockey player - representin for the Indians woohoo), Alicia Sacramone (gymnastics), SCott Spann (swimmer, cause I used to swim with him when he was like 8 haha), Vince Young (Go UT!!!), Allen Iverson... the list could go on so I will stop now haha

I have a few: Georges St. Pierre (MMA) because he really persevered after his Matt Serra loss and I enjoy watching him; Diana Taurasi (WNBA) as I've been one of the few WNBA fans since I was 11 in 1997 and am a Phoenix lady; and definitely Amare Stoudemire (NBA) because after being shuffled through foster care and 6 high schools, he never gave up.
