For the first time in its 96-year history, TIME has named an Athlete Of The Year. This first winner is a group, the US Women’s Soccer Team, who say they are still fighting for more than the World Cup they won this summer.
Instead of choosing Person of the Year runners-up, TIME dedicated covers and honors to those who dominated their fields this year, including singer Lizzo who is named entertainer of the year.
Winners of additional TIME POY Categories:
-Disney CEO Bob Iger named Businessperson of the Year
-“The Public Servants” named Guardians of the Year
