Canada's Top AthletePublished by Toronto Mike on December 5, 2006 @ 12:54 in O Canada
There's some fierce competition for the Lou Marsh Award this year. Usually there is one or maybe two potential winners, but this year there are four.
Justin Morneau is the American League MVP, Joe Thornton in the NHL MVP and Steve Nash is the NBA MVP. In any other year, you could pick one of those as your clear winner. This year, none of them will win.
Speed skater Cindy Klassen came home from the Turin Olympics with an unprecedented five medals. I'm predicting she'll win the Lou Marsh Award. How do you ignore five Olympic medals?
