  1. "Lance Armstrong has been named Laureus World Sportsman of the Year in Monte Carlo.

    It was the second Laureus Statuette Armstrong had won. In 2000, he won the Laureus World Comeback of
    the Year award.

    "I don't know if I really deserve this award because I was in good company," he said after beating
    off Ronaldo, Michael Schumacher and Tiger Woods in the category.

    "This is an honour, a very humbling trophy for me. It's nice to have been selected by a group of
    people that are experts."

    "The winners were chosen by the 41 members of the Laureus world sport academy including sports
    legends such as Franz Beckenbauer, Boris Becker, Sergei Bubka, Bobby Charlton, Sebastian Coe, John
    McEnroe, Martina Navratilova and Alberto Tomba."

    So from now on every year the TdF winner will be named Laureus World Sportsman of the Year?

    Good for cycling in general. But awarding such a title to is still comparing apples to oranges.
     
  4. Maybe you meant to write "beating" or "beating out"! (j/k)
