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 6

Rebecca Adlington (England - Swimming - Won two Olympic golds, broke 800m World Record)

Muhammad Ali (USA - Boxing - Won 56 out of 61 fights, won Gold at the 1960 Olympics)

Bjorn Borg (Sweden - Tennis - Won 11 Grand Slam tournaments, 64 career titles)

Samuel Eto'o (Cameroon - Football - Won La Liga three times with Barcelona, won African Cup of Nations twice)

Chris Hoy (Scotland - Cycling - 6 Olympic golds, 11 World Championship golds)

Carl Lewis (USA - Athletics - 9 Olympic golds, 8 World Championship golds)

Ricky Ponting (Australia - Cricket - Led Australia to victory at the 2003 and 2007 Cricket world cups, named 'Cricketer of the Decade 2000')

Michael Schumacher (Germany - Formula One - Won 7 Championships and a record 91 Grand Prix races)

Garfield Sobers (Barbados - Cricket - Captained the West Indies from 1965 to 1972, considered to be cricket's greatest all-rounder)

Shane Warne (Australia - Cricket - Captained Australia national team, only player to have scored more than 3,000 Test runs without a career century)

The deadline is 23:59 Sunday 15th September. Get voting!
