U.S. Men’s AOY Top 10 Voting

There was no doubt in the voting panel’s mind that Ryan Crouser was the top American man of the Olympic year. (JIRO MOCHIZUKI)

AS THE WORLD AOY, Ryan Crouser was obviously the top American as well. And while the shot put king was a few votes shy of unanimous on the world side, there was no question of his perfection here… He’s the first putter to be U.S. men’s AOY since John Godina in ’98…

Crouser was No. 7 in our ’19 voting and is joined as a repeater from two years ago by Raj Benjamin, Grant Holloway, Joe Kovacs and Noah Lyles (the winner in both ’18 & ’19)…
