STUFF OF LEGEND: Jamaica’s sprint king Usain Bolt and American tennis queenpin Serena Williams – two of the most dominating superstars at the 2012 London Olympic Games – have earned the United States Sports Academy’s 2012 Male and Female Athletes of the Year awards. Williams took gold in the women’s singles and doubles at the London Games, becoming the only person to hold a career Golden Grand Slam in Olympic competition. This year, the American all-star also won Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, bringing her total Grand Slam tally to 15 titles. Meanwhile, Bolt successfully maintained his reign as the World’s Fastest Man by repeating as the Olympic gold medallist in the sprints, becoming the first man ever to win both the 100M and 200M events in successive Summer Olympics. His raft of end-of-year accolades so far includes honours from the IAAF and France’s L’Equipe magazine.
