Yay!!!!!! *hugs Nagini* although you suggested I supported Liverpool *glares* that last post made me like you a lot *g*
Jaap Stamm ROCKS! He is the worlds BEST defender!!!!
However, he is Dutch so I have to go for Beckham or Owen... probably Owen.
Tennis wise I like Lleyton Hewitt ( I gave up with Henman ) and Cricket Wise it HAS to be the England captain Nasser Hussain!

LoL, I am a huge fan of figure skating so of course, I'm going to say Russians Evgeni Plushenko, Alexei Yagudin, and Ilia Kulik. Now for the women, I'm all for Michelle Kwan (though I do kind of see her as the tragic skater who never could grasp that Olympic gold *sigh*).

Then of course, there's always Apolo Anton Ohno...(speed skater)... biggrin.gif

Peace!

I really only follow the NBA so my favs are Vince Carter (looks and talent, he's got it all cool.gif ) Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Nick Van Exel, and Shaq.

Catriona Le May Doan - speed skater, she's amazing
Steve Yzerman - hockey player
Andy Roddick - tennis player
Jamie Sale and David Pelletier - figure skating pairs
Steve Nash - basketball - the guy's Canadian and he rocks!

And uh... can't think of many more right now, but that's just how many...

Has to be Paula Radcliffe, she's an absolutely brilliant athlete. Did anyone see her last night win the gold in 5000m in the Commonwealth Games?

My favourite sportsman is ...my father. Although he's not a professional he has made a sports record in our school's hall of fame (you see he was a graduate of my current school) that has remained up there since 1976!!! His name... Panayotis Varelas!

Paula Radcliffe was great in the Commenwealth games, but having said that, as i'm a great fan of swimming, so was Ian Thorpe!

hmm my dad was a professional soccer player on the EPL club Chelsea, although my 'current' favorite is probably David Beckham of Manchester United and Dennis Bergkamp of Arsenal.
