He is known as 'THE WALL'.. The second best batsman in the world after sachin

The wall of Indian Cricket. Won more matches than Sachin, Sourav, Sehway put together. Saved even more matches when the curtains were down. A great human being.

There is no athlete in all history that accomplished what this man, "The Greatest Sportsman" in all Soviet and Russian History accomplished. Eighty (80) world records in an undefeated ten year career (1970-1980). That is ten (10) world records per year. Further, two time Olympic Gold medal winner (1972 and 1976), and ten (10) time world-champion. Germany attacked with two respective silver and bronze medal winners in both Olympics, but could never over-power. Nor could any human over-power him on the planet period. The first man to press and clean and jerk 500 pounds or better. Squatted a verified, in Olympic Weightlifting style, 1014 pounds in the 70's. On the cover of year 1976 Sport's Illustrated magazine as "World's Strongest Man".

Alexyeev was voted the GREATEST athletic Sportsmen in ALL Soviet History. That fact alone trumps all athletes in the west. From 1970 to 1978 undefeated. Further, 80 World Record in eight years. That is, ten world records per year. No one ever comes close in total strength, quickness, power, and durability than Alexyeev. James Salemi, Schiller Park Illinois, USA

Pound for pound; one of the most determined linebackers in history!

Just sad to see so many people from this generation mindlessly place a bunch of modern players way inferior to this guy. He hit for power, could play any position on the field, and his baserunning was insane... He ran 100 yards in ten seconds in full uniform... He isn't called the Flying Dutchman for nothing!
