Messi the best? Not at home in Argentina

Barcelona fans can sleep a little easier, safe in the knowledge that Lionel Messi won't be leaving the Nou Camp any time soon. The Argentine maestro's signed a deal keeping him at the club until 2018 - taking him past his 31st birthday.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Argentine journalists don't think Lionel Messi is the country's best athlete for 2012.

Argentine boxer Sergio Martinez was awarded the title of "Olimpia de Oro," given to the South American country's top athlete in voting by the Circulo de Periodistas -- or association of journalists.

Martinez defeated Mexican boxer Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. earlier this year in their WBC title fight.

Barcelona star Messi, who has had a record-breaking year with 90 goals, didn't even finish second in the voting. That went to Sebastian Crismanich, the taekwondo fighter who won Argentina's only gold medal in the London Olympics. Messi finished third.
