Best Athletes of 2016 Olympics


The Top TenXW

1Usain BoltUsain St. Leo Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter. Regarded as the fastest person ever timed, he is the first man to hold both the 100 metres and 200 metres world records since fully automatic time measurements became mandatory in 1977. Along with his teammates, he also set the world record in the 4×100 metres more.

I am so sorry, but I just think he's immensely overrated.
And RichardSSG, I'm very disappointed you didn't include Mo "Mobot" Farah. That man is like a spider trying to climb out of a bathtub - tenacious beyond belief. He's such an inspiration. - Britgirl

As I said, Mo is such an inspiration. He never gives up. Never quits. He just keeps going, just like the proverbial spider in the bathtub. - Britgirl
