According to Eurosport. In the official one Riner won, I believe? Which is utterly ridiculous by the way, there's absolutely nobody who deserved it more than Fourcade, so it's good to see the people at Eurosport have a better view at it.

At least a judoka gets some attention in between many other athletes from more popular sports. :d

It's not the officilal one, but it is from l'Equipe (and thus the most talked about). Actually, Fourcade never won it from l'Equipe (in 2014, he was beaten by Lavilénie who just beat the WR that year) and is ranked 4th this year after Mayer and Bosse.

 

I've never understood these rankings anyway. Apples and oranges really.

 

For anyone interested, here are the top ten by l'Equipe:

 

Men:

1. Teddy Riner

2. P-A Bosse

3. Kevin Mayer

4. Martin Fourcade

5. AS Monaco (allright then...)

6. Yohann Diniz

7. Kylian Mbappé

8. Thomas Coville (Sailing)

9. Armel Le Cleac'h (Sailing)

10.. Sébastien Augier & J. Ingrassia (WRC)

 

Women:

1. Tessa Worley

2. Caroline Garcia

3. Clarisse Agbegnenou (They love their judo at l'Equipe apparently)

4. Aurélie Muller

5. Mélina Robert Michon

6. Eugénie le Sommer (Football) (I've no idea why)

7. Tess Ledeux (Freestyle skiing)

8. Perrine Laffont (Freestyle skiing)

9. Helena Clark (Basketball)

10. Koumba Larroque (Wrestling) (Might be a first fot this sport)

 

Not even one guy or a girl from Handball... Yeah, whatever.

Is there an official one? For me it's rather simple: Fourcade had an insane, historic season. I don't see any French athlete on this list or somewhere else who tops that.

No. L'Equipe's one is running since 1946, and is the only one people care about (a bit). But,there is nothing official about it, simply the journalists from the newspaper making their thing.

 

I'm guessing that, in their minds, not every sports are made equals and thus one title in athletics (but not all of them)  > Fourcade's year in Biathlon.

Historical. Tied for most wins ever in one season. The only negative thing was that he 'only' won one gold, one silver (relay) and two bronze medals at the world championships.
