The Athlete of the Year award officially recognizes the best athlete regardless of the sport they play (individual, team) over the course of the year as voted for by the fans. This award is presented by GarberSports in partnership with Visao International Group and is endorsed by the owners, editorial staff, writers and fans of GarberSports.

Athlete of the Year

This award is presented on overall performance in a single sporting calendar year; not on an athlete’s body of work. This award is an appreciation by GarberSports Fans towards the chosen athlete for an outstanding year. Approval of the chosen athlete is believed to be endorsed by the players themselves, fans and supporters.

Voting and competition:

  • You may vote once per day.
  • During the initial voting phase, you may vote for any athlete. In the second phase, the voting will be narrowed down to the top five finalists who receive the most votes.
  • Voters from all nationalities and country are eligible to vote.
  • You must be at least 14 years of age to be eligible to vote.
