Christine Sinclair is the most dominant soccer player, male or female, this country has ever produced.

Period. End of discussion.

How could you argue otherwise after even a casual glance at her sporting resume?

Thirteen years with the national team. Ten-time winner as Canadian female player of the year, including nine in a row. Nominee for the FIFA world player of the year six times. Third on the all-time world scoring list with 143 goals in 190 international matches. Winner of the Lou Marsh Award as Canada's top athlete, a first for any soccer player.

Oh, and she's also the owner of one Olympic bronze medal, a shiny reminder of Canada's success at the 2012 Games in London.

But there's one other nifty little award for the girl with the golden boots.
