L'Equipe 2023 champions: Djokovic, Biles and Kopecky are 10

At the end of the year, the leading sports newspaper L'Equipe traditionally organizes a referendum among its editors.

Djokovic was the winner among men: the 36-year-old Serbian won 3 out of 4 Grand Slam tournaments (Australian Open, Roland Garros, US Open) and lost the Wimbledon final. The 24-time Grand Slam champion finished the year at number one again, after winning the Masters, which he won for a record seventh time.

With 876 points, Djokovic is far ahead of French swimmer Leon Marchand (361) and Dutch Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen (348).

Among women, Biles is at the top. During her return to the World Championships in Antwerp, the 26-year-old American won four gold medals (per team, in each round, on floor and beam) and a silver on vault. This brings her total number of world titles to 23.

Biles scored 812 points, and American skater Mikaela Shiffrin (709) and American swimmer Katie Ledecky (446) completed the women's podium.

With 55 points, we find Lotte Kubicki in tenth place. World champion on the road, winner of the Tour of Flanders, Good for Green and second place in the Tour saw Tour winner Demi Wohlring (246 points) finish in fifth place.

Last year, Polish Iga Swiatek, ranked first in tennis, and Argentine football player Lionel Messi, who led Argentina to the world title, were honored.
