Calgary Stampeders running back Jon Cornish has been named Canada’s best athlete of the year.
The 2013 Lou Marsh Trophy Winner narrowly defeated tennis player Milos Raonic and bobsledder Kaillie Humphries.
There was a six-athlete shortlist for this the 72nd Lou Marsh trophy, which also included skater Patrick Chan, decathlete Damian Warner and Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews.
Each December the Lou Marsh Trophy is awarded to Canada’s top athlete, professional or amateur, man or woman and in any sport.
Such a wide field of options always leads to a spirited debate among the panel of national sports reporters, editors and broadcasters who each have their own views on how to compare athletic achievement across a range of sports.
Cornish was named the CFL’s most outstanding player, the first Canadian to win the award in 35-years in the American-dominated league. The running back rushed 1,813 yards to lead the CFL.
He is the first CFL player to win the Lou Marsh since 1969 when Russ Jackson won.
PHOTOS: A look at some of the candidates
Humphries is the back-to-back world champion in bobsled and has rarely been off a podium since she won a gold medal in 2010 Vancouver.
Raonic is the first Canadian tennis player — male or female — to crack the top 10 in world rankings. As impressive as his individual results are, he also led the Canadian team to the semifinals of the Davis Cup, a feat that hasn’t happened since 1913.
Damian Warner first came to public attention when he was in a medal position at the London Olympics after the first day of the grueling two-day decathlon. He ultimately finished 5th and went on to greater prominence this year winning the bronze medal at the 2013 World Track Championships.
Patrick Chan is a three-time world champion, having captured the 2013 title in London, Ont., on the strength of his short program and is the dominant skater heading into the Sochi Olympics. He won both his Grand Prix assignments this winter and won silver at the Grand Prix Final in Japan on Dec 6.
Jonathan Toews, captained the Chicago Blackhawks to the 2012-13 Stanley Cup title and is one of just two dozen members of the “Triple Gold Club” for being on gold medal winning teams at the Olympics, world championships as well as a Stanley Cup winner.

GOLD STAR: Kevan Miller finished with the game-winning goal on his first career NHL score, played 22:12 of ice time and managed to shake off a crunching Dion Phaneuf hit from behind in the corner in the closing moments of the game. The instinct to move himself into a shooting position off a Carl Soderberg face-off win in the offensive zone is something that belies his stay-at-home defenseman reputation. Miller is cementing his role as an NHL player, and is expected to be able to play vs. the Calgary Flames on Tuesday. BLACK EYE: Dion Phaneuf finished with a minus-2 in 22:05 of ice time, was a liability in his own zone and smashed Kevan Miller from behind in a dirty hit that should merit a review from the NHL Department of Player Safety.

Jiri Hudler scored 3:14 into overtime and the Calgary Flames defeated the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 on Saturday. Edmonton tied the game with 10.1 seconds left to spoil rookie goalie Reto Berra's bid at his first career shutout. With their goalie pulled, Oilers forward David Perron was able to send the puck behind the Calgary goalie from the side of the goal to Taylor Hall, who shoveled it into a wide-open net. The Flames got the win in extra time as a shot from the point ticked off the stick of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and past defender Justin Schultz to Hudler on the doorstep, who scored his eighth of the season.
