Sportsman of the Year

Since their introduction in 1954, the American magazine Sports Illustrated gives awards annually in the Sportsman of the Year at " the athlete or team whose performance most embodied the spirit of sportsmanship and performance in the past year."

Although the vast majority of winners are Americans, the price is not limited to these. The last non-American speed skater Johann Olav Koss of Norway in 1994 was excellent.
