Best Athletes of 2016


The Top Ten

1 Usain Bolt Usain Bolt Usain 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.

It's a shame that Stephen Curry is ahead of one of the greatest athletes of the modern era. Apparently blowing a 3-1 in The Finals with one of the greatest REGULAR SEASON teams of all time is better than WINNING 3 Gold Medals, this is no question that Usain Bolt was the greatest athlete of 2016 - ThePhenomenalOne
