For the last time, Lindsey Vonn is on Forbes‘ 30 Under 30: The Best In Sports list.

Vonn, 29, made the cut along with several Olympians including Shaun White (27), Maria Sharapova (26), LeBron James (29), Kevin Durant (25), Sidney Crosby (26), Jonathan Toews (25), Andy Murray (26), Kei Nishikori (24), Lionel Messi (26), Michael Bradley (26), Ronda Rousey (26), Caroline Wozniacki (23) and likely 2016 Olympian Rory McIlroy (24).

Here’s the full list.

Here’s how Forbes makes its picks:

“Our 30 people, chosen by a three-judge panel among many candidates, basically break down into two distinct groups: professional athletes who boast strong personal brands or carry major importance to their sports, and young executives or entrepreneurs making a mark in the industry.”

Here are notable Olympic omissions:

Usain Bolt (26, who made it last year)
Yuna Kim (23)
Michael Phelps (28)

    The credibility of the list takes a huge hit when you notice the tight end for the Patriots who made the list is labeled “Ron” Grownkowski. It also claims he has a “litany” of NFL records already. (Yards and TDs in a season for a tight end constitute a litany?)
