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!

30 of our Finalists have been decided - that means there's 20 more sports up for grabs. The remaining 40 sportspeople will contest for these by going head-to-head in the Playoffs. Here are the details.

- You must choose one sportsperson from each pair listed. You can do this however you want but please make your choice clear
- 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 pairs in the first post without the descriptions/flags
- The winners of each head-to-head will advance through to the Final, whilst the losers will be eliminated.
