LANCE STORMS: The 2002 Sports

LANCE STORMS: The 2002 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year is cyclist Lance Armstrong, who came back from near-death from testicular cancer to win the Tour de France four consecutive years. I would've guessed SI would choose Serena Williams, as the Sportsman award has traditionally gone to newly-coronated superstars who have made the Leap. And if Barry Bonds weren't such a jerk, he'd be a shoo-in himself. But Armstrong is a deserving and worthy winner; congratulations to him.
