Sports Illustrated Names Sportsperson of the Year

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has once again been named as Sports Illustrated’s ‘Sportsperson of the Year’ for 2021.

Brady, who had previously won the award in 2005 as a member of the New England Patriots, once again earned the popular magazine’s top distinction after winning a record seventh Super Bowl and fifth Super Bowl MVP in February.

Brady is among three athletes to have won ‘Sportsperson of the Year’ multiple times.

LeBron James has won the award a record three times as a member of the Miami Heat (2012), Cleveland Cavaliers (2016) and Los Angeles Lakers (2020).

Golfer Tiger Woods won the award twice, both as the U.S. Amateur and NCAA champion (1996) and after his third of 15 career PGA Major championships (2000).
