The presidential election may still be almost a year away, but now is your chance to cast your vote for Lauren Jackson. Lauren is one of the nominees for the 2007 United States Sports Academy Athlete of the Year award, as presented by USAToday.com and MSNBC.com. Past winners include Lance Armstrong, Roger Federer, Mia Hamm, Michael Jordan, Annika Sorenstam and Tiger Woods.
There’s a great group of female nominees, including tennis star Justine Henin and sprinter Allyson Felix, but how many of them can claim an MVP award? That’s right, only LJ. Not that you need convincing, but WNBA.com’s Adam Hirshfield has a great explanation of why she is the best candidate.
Lauren is also up for Australia’s best sportswoman of 2007 in a poll conducted by The Herald Sun newspaper. Click here to vote for her for that honor.
