The recent poll in Colorado that we told you about also asked a fun question about the popularity of local sports celebrities.

State of play: The Denver Nuggets' Nikola Jokić is the most popular athlete in Colorado — even more popular than Taylor Swift, the Colorado Polling Institute found.

What they did: The poll tested three Colorado sports figures — Jokić, Deion Sanders (aka Coach Prime) and skier Mikaela Shiffrin — and Swift.

  • All our local celebrities had a more positive image, so take that, Swifties.
