Lindsey Vonn, Shaun White make Forbes’ 30 Under 30; surprising snub
For the last time, Lindsey Vonn is on Forbes’ 30 Under 30: The Best In Sports list.
Vonn, 29, made the cut along with several Olympians including Shaun White (27), Maria Sharapova (26), LeBron James (29), Kevin Durant (25), Sidney Crosby (26), Jonathan Toews (25), Andy Murray (26), Kei Nishikori (24), Lionel Messi (26), Michael Bradley (26), Ronda Rousey (26), Caroline Wozniacki (23) and likely 2016 Olympian Rory McIlroy (24).
Here’s how Forbes makes its picks:
“Our 30 people, chosen by a three-judge panel among many candidates, basically break down into two distinct groups: professional athletes who boast strong personal brands or carry major importance to their sports, and young executives or entrepreneurs making a mark in the industry.”
Here are notable Olympic omissions:
Usain Bolt (26, who made it last year)
Yuna Kim (23)
Michael Phelps (28)
