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.

206 Jahangir Khan

During his career he won the World Open six times and the British Open a record ten times. From 1981 to 1986, he was unbeaten in competitive play. During that time he won 555 games consecutively, the longest winning streak by any athlete in top-level professional sports as recorded by Guinness World Records.

In 1982, Jahangir win the International Squash Players Association Championship without losing a single point. he holds the longest winning streak by any player in any sport. he should be right on the top.

His records speaks for himself. Squash is incomplete without Jahangir Khan

He was one of the best Pakistani athlete

208 James J. Braddock

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.

209 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.

210 Lennox Lewis

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

211 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

212 Milkha Singh

Why is he so underrated? Vote for him, watch the movie of him and know why he deserves to be in top list.

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

He diserving 50 ranking

213 Allyson Felix

For me, the absolute best athlete, by far. She impresses me in every way possible.

214 Lev Yashin Lev Yashin Lev Ivanovich Yashin, nicknamed the "Black Spider" or the "Black Panther", was a Soviet-Russian football goalkeeper, considered by many to be the greatest goalkeeper in the history of the game.

Lev yashin saved 150 penalties and kept 270 clean sheets.
He is the best goalkeeper in soccer history.

215 Almaz Ayana

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.

216 Felix Trinidad

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

217 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!
