Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Well, I vote Megan Rapinoe. She kept us in the game against Canada, which got us to the gold medal game (soccer).

Um, where's Ashton Eaton and Trey Hardee on this list? Finishing the Decathlon 1 & 2 in the Olympic games is no easy feat.

Ryan Lochte made the list? Really? I'm not even a sports fan and I know that has to be a joke.

How is Michale Phelps not on this poll? Especially since Ryan Lochte is? Phelps easily wins this title in 2012. Most decorated Olympian of all time... no brainer.

yeah, seriously. the guy hasn't even won a championship yet. *the one he "won" the heat doesn't count - they didn't even play a full season that year...

Michael Phelps, we do remember that he dominated the Olympics this year right?

Lance Armstrong got his name in the paper a lot, but that was for the wrong reasons.

Good choice. Non swimmers don't realize how grueling this sport is. She's also just a cute and engaging kid, and a terrific role model.
