Joining Bolt as nominees for the prestigious “Laureus World Sportsman of the Year Award” are British distance runner Mo Farah, US basketball star LeBron James, tennis ace Rafael Nadal of Spain, Portuguese football player Cristiano Ronaldo and German Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel. Besides Williams, the “Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year” could go to German football player Nadine Angerer, US swimmer Missy Franklin, Jamaican sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva of Russia or Slovenian skier Tina Maze.
