In honor of its 60th anniversary, Sports Illustrated narrowed down 3,069 covers to a list of 32 and asked readers to vote on which was the most iconic.

After five rounds, the winner by a landslide: "Miracle on Ice," from March 3, 1980, depicting one of the greatest moments in American sports history.
