Gabrielle Douglas was nominated for the 2012 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year. The field was very competitive with other great athletes like tennis superstar Serena Williams, the most decorated Olympian of all time in swimmer Michael Phelps, and one of the most heartwarming stories of the Olympic Games in sprinter Oscar Pistorius. In the end, the award went to professional basketball player LeBron James. However, when he accepted his award, he acknowledged what he called "the real sportsmen of the year."

Below is a story of two brothers, Conner and Cayden Long. They were given the title of "2012 Sports Illustrated Kids SportsKids of the Year" but I agree with LeBron James, they are the the true Sportsmen of the Year. They remind you what it is to be passionate about something and what it means to truly love.
