WOODS DROpS INTO TIE WITH BRYANT
Tiger Woods dropped into a tie with Kobe Bryant as the favorite American sports star. Woods had held the position alone since 2006, but the Los Angeles Lakers guard moved up from fourth last year to grab a share of the top spot, Harris Interactive said Tuesday.
LeBron James dropped from third to sixth in the company’s survey of 2,227 adults conducted online from June 14-21, before he left Cleveland to sign with Miami. Among female athletes, sisters Serena and
Venus Williams were 1-2, followed by race car driver Danica Patrick, retired soccer star Mia Hamm and tennis
stars Maria Sharapova and Anna Kournikova.
