He's a beuty but sucks now
HE SHOULD BE NUMBER#1
Love HIM!V 1 Comment
Demonstrates every aspect of the American dream. He was a man of tenacity, ability, integrity, and hard work. He cared for his family, and his drive to compete was out of interest for his family.
First man to climb all 14 of the world's 8,000+ meter peaks. First man to both summit Everest solo, and without oxygen. Third person to climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. Crossed Greenland, Antarctica, the Gobi desert, and skied to the North Pole. Climbed his first mountain at age 4. Since rock-climbing is the second most athletic sport according to ESPN, Messner takes the cake.
he should be number one...no one else could even come close to his feats...he is a living siper hero
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.
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
You idiots, vote for this guy, he IS the greatest of all time. At least top ten
He diserving 50 ranking
For me, the absolute best athlete, by far. She impresses me in every way possible.
She is the current best female medium and long distance track runner in the world. I hope that she will continue to retain this position for the next 10 years, provided that she maintains her focus, hard work and commitment to it.
one word... hmmm maybe "IDOL" - Emery
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!V 1 Comment
was at par with kobe when he was not injured.. great tracy!
best small foward/guard in the game
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.

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 everV 3 Comments
