(c)Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes lands on cover for Time 100 most influential people of 2024

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is one of six athletes who were named Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2024.

Mahomes led the Chiefs to their third Super Bowl championship in the past five years with a 25-22 victory in overtime over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 58.

Former MLB player Alex Rodriguez wrote of Mahomes: “I remember Pat as a young kid, coming to practice with his dad to tee up baseballs for me and my teammates. I distinctly remember giving him the worst advice ever: “Don’t play football. The money’s in baseball.”

Mahomes, who is one of four people featured on the covers of the magazine, also made Time’s annual list last year.

Others on the 2024 list include Max Verstappen, who has won the Formula One championship in each of the past three years, and Siya Kolisi, a South African rugby player who helped his country win the Rugby World Cup for the fourth time.

WNBA All-Star center A’ja Wilson, who helped the Las Vegas Aces capture the WNBA title for the second straight year, and Sakshi Malik, an Olympic wrestler who won a bronze medal in the 2016 Summer Games, and was arrested during a protest last year for demanding the arrest of the India Wrestling Federation chief, also made the list.

Rounding out the sports figures is Jenni Hermoso, a member of Spain’s 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup championship squad. Royal Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales kissed Hermoso on the lips during the trophy presentation, which Hermoso said was unwanted. She led a movement after the incident that resulted in the removal of Rubiales and Spain’s head coach, Jorge Vilda.
