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 5

Boris Becker (Germany - Tennis - 49 career titles, won 6 Grand Slam titles)

Margaret Court (Australia - Tennis - Won 24 Grand Slam titles, 129 career titles)

Billie Jean King (USA - Tennis - Won 12 Grand Slam titles, 129 career titles)

Laura Kenny (Trott) (England - Track Cycling - 4 Olympic Golds, 7 World Championship Golds, 12 European Championship golds)

Diego Maradona (Argentina - Football - Led Argentina to 1986 World Cup victory and won Golden Ball)

Marta (Brazil - Football - Most goals scored at World Cup tournaments, won World Player of the Year 6 times, first footballer of either gender to score at 5 World Cups)

Lionel Messi (Argentina - Football - Won Ballon D'Or a record 5 times, won a club-record 34 trophies with Barcelona, most goals ever in La Liga)

Martina Navaratilova (USA - Tennis - Won 18 Grand Slam singles and 31 Grand Slam doubles titles, 168 Singles career titles and 186 Doubles titles)
