Time’s 100Next Features Harmanpreet Kaur, Angel Reese And Jalen Hurts, Among Others As Future Leaders

Must Read

TIME magazine’s 100Next features “100 up-and-coming visionaries worldwide who are influencing the future and shaping the forthcoming wave of leadership” from wide fields including arts, sports, science and others.

Jalen Hurts, Angel Reese, Indian cricketer Harmanpreet Kaur, and Ronald Acua Jr., who also appeared on the magazine’s cover alongside singer/songwriter Kelsea Ballerini and chef Mory Sacko, are among the seven sportsmen that made the list.

Hurts, the quarterback for the Eagles, has consistently been among the greatest players in the league and is predicted to guide his group to yet another Super Bowl trip this year. Although Hurts received a 255 million dollar deal in the summer, he is not letting his success go to his head.

In an article in TIME, Peyton Manning wrote, “He’s not celebrating. He doesn’t see it as a reward. He sees it for what it is: the Eagles are paying him for what they expect him to do now. He’s a model of how to approach a job. This is where the hard work begins.”

“He’s a model of how to approach a job. This is where the hard work begins.”

The LSU Tigers women’s basketball team won its first National Championship under the leadership of Reese, a 21-year-old basketball standout, who set a record with 34 double-doubles. Candace Parker complimented Reese’s potential in a Time article.

Harmanpreet, the 34-year-old captain of the India Women’s National team, led her side to embrace the WPL 2023 trophy while serving as the Mumbai Indians’ torchbearer for the Tata Women’s Premier League. She also has a stellar national team track record.

The 25-year-old outfielder for the Braves, Acua Jr., is the clear favourite to win the National League MVP award and has been wowing both colleagues and fans with his abilities. Acua Jr. received a fantastic review from Miguel Cabrera, who was writing for Time.

Cabrera said, “Ronald? He has a great chance of becoming the best Venezuelan-born baseball player ever. It’s as simple as that. Ronald is more than just his statistics. He is the kind of player that fans pay to watch play. He can change the game with a single hit, his defense, or his baserunning.”

The USWNT’s Sophia Smith, American golfer Rose Zhang, and Spanish soccer player Salma Paralluelo are the other athletes that made the list.
