Greatest Athletes of All Time

The Contenders: Page 11

201 Martin Strel

he's a machine. I laugh at some people who think they know football(soccer) ronaldinho the best you make me laugh and freddy adu wouldn't make the top 100000 - sss866

You tell me someone who has more mental and physical strength not to mention fearlessness and I'd be very impressed.

He swam the length of the Danube, the Mississippi, the Yangtze, and the Amazon, breaking the Guinness record for longest swim each time. No one else has accomplished anything close to this.

202 Lennox Lewis

He's big, he's black and he's bad. So whos better, Muhammad ali, no way.

203 Milkha Singh

You idiots, vote for this guy, he IS the greatest of all time. At least top ten

He diserving 50 ranking

204 Felix Trinidad

one word... hmmm maybe "IDOL" - Emery

205 Johnny Unitas Johnny Unitas John Constantine Unitas, nicknamed "Johnny U", or "The Golden Arm", was an American professional football player from the 1950s through the 1970s.

The last of the great on the field play callers. Had better accuracy with the deep ball than any other QB. And you don't see many quarterbacks tough enough to play through a game with knocked out teeth and a bloodied face.

Greatest quarterback to walk the face of the earth!

was at par with kobe when he was not injured.. great tracy!

best small foward/guard in the game

207 Lee Chong Wei

Currently the world number 1 badminton player. His ability to do wonders with racket ans shuttle is amazing. Not only that, his infinite energy and never-give up attitude is admirable.

By far one of the best athletes the world of badminton singles has ever had
No one has as good racket skills and such a good selection of shots. By far the best

He is the best badminton player forever

208 Clyde Drexler Clyde Drexler
209 Kyle Lowry Kyle Lowry Kyle Lowry is an American professional basketball player for the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association.
210 Brett Piercey
211 Kelly Jennings
212 Heather McKay

For me its between Heather McKay and Don Bradman. Undefeated between 1963 and 1979

Consider the scores in the Finals of the British Open - Squash's world championship:

Winner 1962 9"6, 9"5, 9"4
Winner 1963 9"4, 9"2, 9"6
Winner 1964 9"2, 9"2, 9"1
Winner 1965 9"0, 9"1, 9"2
Winner 1966 9"0, 9"0, 10"8
Winner 1967 9"1, 10"8, 9"6
Winner 1968 9"0, 9"0, 9"0
Winner 1969 9"2, 9"0, 9"0
Winner 1970 9"1, 9"1, 9"0
Winner 1971 9"0, 9"3, 9"1
Winner 1972 9"1, 9"1, 9"2
Winner 1973 9"1, 9"0, 9"1
Winner 1974 9"2, 9"1, 9"2
Winner 1975 9"3, 9"1, 9"5
Winner 1976 9"2, 9"4, 9"2
Winner 1977 9"3, 9"1, 9"2

16 consecutive work titles without dropping a set once in the finals!

If you can be ...more

Simply the greatest of them all, along with the Don. The stats don't lie. I couldn't agree more with the comment that it's between Heather and the Don. It's not because I'm Australia, it's simply because, as I said, the stats don't lie. Statistical analyses have shown that even greats like Pele and Michael Jordan just don't come close. Of course, Walter Lindrum needs to be analyzed too.

Complete domination of Women's Squash, undefeated for 19 years at the highest level. Also a racquetball chammpion.

G.O.A.T. Bar none! That includes yanks.

How the hell did we forget PRE? The greatest athlete of all time never says the best performing a their sport in the title. To me it means the most inspirational. Pre was the greatest runner in America and I truely believe that not a single runner since has inspired a nation like he did. Not only runners were inspired by him, but an entire nation from football and basketball jocks to waitresses and rocket science nerds. No one since has touched a nation to the extremity that he did. It is unfortunate he died before Montreal. - themusicking101

He set every American record from the 2,000 to 10,000 meter runs. Lets see Michael Jordan even RUN 3 miles. -

Most interesting and inspirational person to ever live. Truly my biggest inspiration in sports history. Watch Without Limits and you'll see why. GO PRE

Best runner ever
