Legend out of Cincinnati my pride
Come on the guy is 42, he works so hard, just cause he got too old doesn't mean he's ranked 153rd in the list. Come on
Number 4 on the field number 1 all time! No one will last as long and play to that level!
I'd like to see what you're doing at 42 years old
A true iron man sports will never see again.V3 Comments
My inspiration and idol growing up, never knew one man could have the kind of impact on my life that Emmitt did, but he did. How can you argue with against the all time leading rusher in the NFL.

Best kicker in any sport by a mile don't deny it
Sir Garfield Sobers; left hand middle order batsman, left arm fast medium and left arm orthodox spin bowler.
two player in one
one of the greatest batsman of all time
always with a smile
privilege to know him
He is just an entertainer and not an athlete. The one who put his name in this list must be totally dumb.
He's a wwe wrestler, they are fakers
Who put John Cena here? He is a disgrace to this list.
Best wrestler everV5 Comments
Georges St-Pierre should be way higher than this. He currently the hardest working athlete... period. He may not be a bodybuilder, but he is definitely the best all around athlete ( I think of all time) currently. GSP al the way.
Put GSP up against any athlete and he wins, you have to be the ultiamte athlete for mma and he's the best in the world
G. S. P. Could kick anyone's ass because he kicked Matt Serra's ass
He is almost as athletic as Jacob DyeV4 Comments
Know one will ever have a record like Dale Earnhardt. As a race car driver check out his career. He never finished lower than 11th in point. Ever year of his career was top 11. First year rookie of the year, second year won the winston cup. He was a leader and did more for the sport than any other. No one has ever taken his place after he was killed as leader to this day. Many do not know he was a very caring man and help many on and off the track. If you meet him or new him you fell in love with the man and he had earn the respect of million.
Nobody can repeat his performance! I think he is the best that will ever be, he knew how to do things no one else could! It's gonna take some real talent to exceed his ability's!
I haven't seen any F1 drivers in this list, not to make NASCAR less, but I think that F1 races are way more complex, where is Ayrton Senna, Schumi or Alain Prost? , come on this list is total crapV2 Comments
the mile king and holder of solid three world records. very difficult to replace this king
Why the heck is Garfield sobers above this. This guy us the holds the record for the fastest mile! Last time I checked, Garfield is a cartoon character.
The best mile runner ever! His records and medals are just amazing, and I think no one can do half of what he did.
THe mile King his story and his style makes him the best athlete ever, just read how he fight to won his medals and to put his name between starsV6 Comments
He should be in the top 3. His record is he broke them all, been out of pole vaulting for 12 years and his record will not be broken in our lifetime.7 world championships. Sure Armstrong should be somewhere, but Bubka is unbeaten.
Best ever, set a margin with other competitors unseen in ANY and ALL sports. - AlphaX
No one ever dominated a sport like Bubka did. And he did it in the most athletic of all sports. Pole vault requires the ultimate combination of speed, strength and agility.
When comparing how much better he was than the rest to people of other sports, he is just about the best ever.V3 Comments
Even though Ray Lewis has retired, he was so awesome as a NFL football player for the Ravens.
