The nominees for best track athlete are Allyson Felix, Tyson Gay, Sanya Richards and Jeremy Wariner. Vote here.

Are you like me? Did you not even know this awards show still even existed? And what do they mean by "best track athlete"? Is it best American athlete? (Apparently so, but nominees for other sports include foreigners.) Is it best last year, this year, or some combination of the two? Why the heck is Allyson Felix a nominee instead of Deena Kastor?

I'm probably overanalyzing the issue. The show is probably intended to be a poorly-thought-out orgy of self-congratulation...just like every other awards show out there.
