Who’s America’s Favorite Sports Star?

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – To guess who America’s favorite sports star is, just take a swing at it.

According to a poll by Harris Interactive, golf superstar Tiger Woods is America’s favorite athlete for the fourth year in a row.

Woods beat out basketball legend Michael Jordan, who comes in at No. 2.

However, Jordan is the only sports star to be on the list every year since 1993, proving folks still “wanna be like Mike.”

Cleveland Cavalier star LeBron James is No. 3, followed by Kobe Bryant, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, NASCAR’S Jeff Gordon, NFL star Peyton Manning, racecar driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., NFL quarterback Brett Favre, and St. Louis Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols.

As for America’s favorite female sports stars, the No. 1 and No. 2 spots belong to swinging sisters Serena and Venus Williams, respectively.

Racecar driver Danica McKellar is third up, followed by WNBA star Candace Parker and soccer great Mia Hamm.
