Schumacher second most important sports story of the year

A world-wide poll of Associated Press subscribers has voted Michael Schumacher's fourth World Championship as the second most important sports story of 2001.

The Formula One story was second only to the announcement that Beijing had been awarded the 2008 Olympic Games and beat out Michael Jordan's NBA comeback and Tiger Woods' masters win.

The poll, voted on mostly by newspaper and magazine editors, emphasizes the importance of Formula One to the world-wide sports community.
