Voting for the International World Games Association “Greatest Athlete of All-Time” contest opened today and U.S. national team veteran Alyssa Murray Cometti is representing the sport of lacrosse.

The contest helps the IWGA celebrate 40 years of the The World Games, the signature event of the IWGA. The organization received nominations from 25 member organizations for the contest. Voting continues through Feb. 1, but only the top 10 leading vote getters through Jan. 20 will advance to the final ballot.

Lacrosse made its debut at The World Games in 2017, when the U.S. women’s team defeated Canada in Wroclaw, Poland to win the gold medal. Murray Cometti, a former Syracuse star, was the U.S. team’s leading scorer at the event with 19 points on 12 goals and seven assists. She scored four goals in the gold-medal game, an 11-8 victory over Canada.

Murray Cometti joined the U.S. team program in 2014 and was a three-time first-team IWLCA All-American at Syracuse before then. She graduated second on Syracuse’s all-time scoring list with 362 points and was the first Orange women’s player with three 100-point seasons.

She is currently the program director and varsity head coach for the Vandegrift High School Lady Vipers girls’ lacrosse club and a director for Iron Horse Lacrosse in Austin, Texas.

The World Games is a multi-sport event staged every four years by the International World Games Association under the patronage of the International Olympic Committee. The 11th edition of The World Games will be held in Birmingham, Alabama, USA, 7-17 July 2022. 3,600 athletes from over 30 sports, including both men’s and women’s lacrosse, and 100 countries will take part in The World Games.
