This week's Global Podium for the best sportspeople in the world features Sébastien Ogier & Julien Ingrassia, Evans Chebet and Neil Robertson.
Gold: Sébastien Ogier / Julien Ingrassia
(France, Auto Racing)
Ogier and Ingrassia are one of the most successful partnerships in history of Rally Car racing. By taking the ACI Rally Monza they also became FIA World Rally Champions for the seventh time, second of all time. They have also the unusual feat of having been World Champions with three different Constructors: 2013-2016 with Volkswagen Motorsport, 2017-18 with M-Sport World Rally Team (Ford) and 2020 with Toyota Gazoo Racing WRT. This is the 49th World Rally overall win, second of all time, just behind the Sébastien Löeb (FRA)/Daniel Elena (MCO) partnership.

Silver: Evans Chebet
The Valencia Marathon, a World Athletics Platinum Race, turned out to be a last metres sprint between Kenyan athletes, ultimately won by Evans Chebet over Lawrence Cherono (KEN). The impressive was that with the time of 2:0300 Chebet has now ran the third fastest Marathon in history. Peres Jepchirchir (KEN) has continued her great year and won again, recording the fifth fastest female Marathon ever.

Bronze: Neil Robertson
Neil Robertson won one of the best Snooker games of all time -a 10-9 match that lasted over seven hours- to defeat World number 1, Judd Trump (ENG) and take the World Snooker Tour Betway UK Championship for a third time. Robertson becomes the fifth player to win this Triple Crown Championship three times. He now has 19 ranking titles and moves up to second in the World Ranking. His performance was one of the best ever, with 12 “centuries” throughout the tournament, an equal-best at the tournament.
