Lance Armstrong's six in a row Tours de France in that hated anti-American country France. Yeah, rub it in their faces! :P

Also last year's victory for the "Red Sox Nation" and the sweet, romantic movie about it. Hurray for their manager and Johnny Damon! :lol:

As I prefer personal achievment over team sports I have to go with Lance Armstrong. The man is an amazing example of will, determination, pride, and above all hope. He was given less than a 3% chance to live back in 1996. Three years later he was the best athlete in his sport and stayed there for 7 years. And he got there through tons of hard work and innovation. Nobody spent time in wind tunnels before Lance. Nobody scouted and rode the mountain stages of the Tour de France before Lance.

The French hate him because he embodies a lot of American attitudes AND he's better than they are. That's exactly why he's my favorite athlete, without a doubt.
