Welcome to the World Cup of Sportspeople! With the Women's Football World Cup in full swing just finished and the Men's World Cup being a resounding success last year, we'll be following on with a tournament, not of countries, but of the sports-men and women themselves. This contest is designed to select the greatest sportspeople from each continent through a number of rounds, selecting the best of the best, and pitting them together to show who we really think is the best sportsperson of them all!

We're finally at the Finals! This is the Group Stage, where the best of the best battle it out to be in the Final Final. The 100 qualifiers have been split into 10 groups. All 100 who made it to this stage will be in the countdown, but only half will make the Final Ranking.

- You must rank all 10 sportspeople, from 1st to 10th.
- Each sportsperson has been given a short description of their major achievements to make it easier for you to make up your mind. There is also a list of the names in the first post without the descriptions/flags
- The top three sportspeople in each group will advance directly through to the Final. The sportspeople in positions 4 to 7 will face off against each other in the Playoffs, whilst the bottom three athletes will be automatically eliminated.

Group 10

Franz Beckenbauer (Germany - Football - Captained Germany to a World Cup victory in 1974, European Footballer of the Year twice)

Genzebe Dibaba (Ethiopia - Athletics - World Record holder for indoor 1500m, outdoor 1500m, indoor 3000m, indoor 5000m and indoor mile, IAAF World Athlete of the Year 2015)

Hicham El Guerrouj (Morocco - Athletics - Outdoor 1500m, 200m and mile World Record holder, two Olympic Golds and 4 World Championship golds)

Jairzinho (Brazil - Football - Won 1970 World Cup with Brazil, winning the Silver boot)

Juan Manuel Fangio (Argentina - Motor Racing - Won 5 championships, 24 Grand Prix wins)
