If we asked you to name the most influential athlete of the last year right now—like, right now!—who would you name? LeBron James? Peyton Manning? Someone from the Sochi Olympics? Those would all be good guesses. But according to TIME, those would all be wrong. Instead, the most influential athlete of the year—again, according to TIME—is none other than…
That's right—Jason Collins. TIME just released their list of the 100 Most Influential People and Collins scored a spot on a TIME cover for being the first openly gay player in the NBA. Inside of the issue that features the list, Collins also received a write-up from Chelsea Clinton, who wrote about meeting Collins at Stanford when they were both freshman and the bravery he demonstrated by coming out last year.
Collins isn't the only athlete on this year's list, though. In addition to him, TIME also honors Richard Sherman, Serena Williams (with a write-up from Dwyane Wade), Lydia Ko (with a write-up from Annika Sorenstam), and Cristiano Ronaldo (with a write-up from Pelé) on the list.
Do you think TIME selected the right athletes this year—or did they miss someone?
