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.
He's big, he's black and he's bad. So whos better, Muhammad ali, no way.
He has lost only once in his career and that was his first match after that he dominated he is agile fast strong you just can't beat him.
The guy is a monster, he is 6' 3" and weighs 280-300 pounds he has incredible strength and extraordanary speed and agility for a guy his size, if you don't believe me search him up. I don't see how people like Larry bird is in front of him. He is a former ufc champion.
C'mon, the guy is 6'3, 260 pounds of a man Yet he still moves like a 160 pounder. Best pure Athleticism in the world! - Obelisk94
He is most demostative athelic and this timeV 5 Comments
Crazy assists, shots, layups, and more! Curry is way better than Lebron and Kobe COMBINED. He has worked hard, I'm surprised he's not in the top tens with his talent.
He is way more better than Lebron James because he can shoot 3s better and his arch is amazing! He has a way, Lebron thinks but he doesn't.. Stephan is the new Jordan!
He is the face of the NBA. He breaks his own records every year.
Curry should be at the top of the list. Right under, maybe even with Michael JordanV 13 Comments
Should be picking cotton
He's a beuty but sucks now
HE SHOULD BE NUMBER#1
Love HIM!V 1 Comment
Only rookie to get 1000+ yards (didn't even start the whole season) of the 06-07 season. And to top it off won a Super Bowl. Yeah reggie bush is amazing. But Addai is good.
Joseph Addai is a combination of Jim Brown and Walter Payton.
Frank Fredericks is way too underrated. He is the coolest man ever!
Best personality ever and also the greatest athlete ever!

Winner 1964 9"2, 9"2, 9"1

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.
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

In the NRL, none compare. In other sports, few come close.
Comparing the dedication to the sport, to the fans, to the development - none come close. There's the humility, the longevity, great role model. Everything rolled up into one guy. Definitely the world's greatest athlete - if rugby league were a world sport, everyone would agree.
NRL. Not the most popular sport in US but in Australia... EVERYONE knows Lockyer is the greatest NRL player to ever play 'the' game! #1 Fullback #5/8th Most games/wins in Team, State and National. GO LOCKY! - evergrey123V 1 Comment
During his prime, he's unbeatable.
The backhand smash is just legendary!
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
