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!

This is the Voting stage for South America. We received 67 different nominations in all - taking away our auto-qualifier, Lionel Messi, this gives us two groups of 33 players. Here's how this stage is going to work.

- You can vote for up to 20 sportspeople, but you must vote for at least 10.
- You must rank your votes in order of preference, either by numbering or by the standard Buzzjack +20, +19 ... +1 (Or down to however many you vote for)
- You must vote for sportspeople from at least three different sports
- You must vote for at least one male and one female sportsperson.
- Each sportsperson has been given a short description of their major achievements to make it easier for you to make up your mind.
- The seven sportspeople with the most votes in each group will advance to the Final, and the rest of the Top 10 will advance through to the Intercontinental Playoffs. Everyone else will be booted out.

At first glance I thought this was quite a spread-out set of results, but on second look all the qualifiers are Brazilian. Something I should mayybe tweak if we do this again. Five footballers and two motor racers as well.
