2019 was full of great sports moments from multiple sports.

Messi winning his 6th ballon D’or is the best sports moment of 2019, the survey says. In a random survey of 50 Morton East students, 17 selected Messi’s Ballon d’Or as their favorite sports moment of 2019.

Messi is the first soccer player in history to win 6 Ballon d’Or.  The Ballon D’or is given to the best soccer player of the year. Messi finished on top of Virgil Van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo.

In second place with 15 votes was Liverpool winning the Champions League. In third was the Toronto Raptors winning the NBA champion. Last place goes to the Washington Nationals winning the world series.
