By Miguel Rivera
According to a big survey conducted by the Strategic Communications Office (GCE), Javier "Chicharito" Hernández bested both Juan Manuel Marquez and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez to grab the 2012 title of Mexico's "Athlete of The Year."
Hernandez is a footballer who plays as a forward for English Premier League club Manchester United and the Mexican national team.
Hernandez grabbed 25.7% of the overall vote, with Juan Manuel Marquez coming in a strong second at 23.9% and Canelo being a distant third at 12.7%. Olympic medal winners Paola Espinosa 12% and Oribe Peralta 7.6% rounded out the top five of the vote.
Canelo saw action twice in 2012, with a decision victory over veteran Shane Mosley in May and a complete destruction of Josesito Lopez in September. Marquez beat Sergey Fedchenko to capture his fourth divisional title in April and then got the most significant win of the year with a sixth round knockout of Manny Pacquiao on December 8.
