24 Frank Fredericks

Frankie Fredericks is a top ten sprinter all day long. Completely and utterly shameful that Frankie is this low on the list.

HE IS Namibia'S BEST SPRINTER YET. he has a 100m personal best of 9.86 and a 200m personal best of 19.68, this is 6th fastest time ever. he is a two time olympic 200m silver medalist and 1 time world championship gold medalist. he is also a 1 time 100m world championship silver medallist..

25 Wayde van Niekerk

He crushed Michael Johnson's 400m world record and is the only human ever to run under 10 seconds in the 100m, under 20 seconds in the 200m, and under 44 seconds in the 400. in 4 years he will be second only to Usain Bolt.

For your information, he isn't the first man to go under 10s in 100m, the first man to go under 20s in 200m nor the first man to go under 44s in 400m. Don't listen to this dude who posted without fact checking his info.

400m world record holder overlooked by usain bolt at rio should be above Michael Johnson
