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!

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 Dye

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 stars

71Serguei Bubka

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.
