Most people forget that Marino's accomplishments and numbers dwarfed Elway's for almost the entire length of both of the careers (both in the 1983 draft). Elway won two Superbowls at the end of his career with Terrell Davis). Marino never had a running game--and the defenses knew what he was going to do on third down--but Marino usually made the play.V 1 Comment
Jeff Ward has won Motocross and Supercross titles (documented as the most physically demanding sport on the planet), won Indy car races, two X-Games gold medals at 45 years old, and is a Rookie of the Year in LOORRS. He's succeeded in FOUR grueling sports, not just two and like Jordan and Sanders, and is in TWO Hall of Fames. Jeff's a low key family man and he's never needed controversy to get noticed so that would account for the lack of exposure. Ricky Carmichael at 26 would be the first to agree. These guys run triathlons to "train" for their sport. - MJRydsFastV 1 Comment
The worst losser and most bitterest snooker player. Why he's on this list is beyond ajok unless it a different mark allen.
Crazy athlete with an enormous hunger to win. Not known outside of triathlon but along with Mark Allen one of the greats of I'm. Six wins in Hawai... What more do you need to know.
Tied for the most Ironman World Championship titles (with Mark Allen), 6 titles. The race starts with a 2.4 Mile swim through the ocean, then a 112 mile bike ride through hot windy hilly conditions, and a finally a full blown 26 mile marathon... All in about just over 8 hours, a days work, beating atheletes that are in superior condition than 99 of all the atheletes listed on here... 6 times. Top that.
Played multiple sports growing up. Football (Soccer), Hockey, even a bit of MMA. Basketball wasn't even his first sport til high school. He'll bend his body anyway to make a basket. Shows you how athletic the Canadian really is.V 1 Comment
He will be higher at the end of the season
He is One of the Best Cricketer the cricket have ever seen.17 years of Faithful Service to his team Australia. One of the Greatest Batsman of all times and the Best ever Captain of all Time and adding to that is his Brilliant athletic Fielding.
Holding uncountable records, He is definitely a GREATEST ATHLETE OF ALL TIME!
Without him there is no meaning of cricket... I think we have to delete no (2)from his rank(238)... After Sachin Tendulkar he is the greatest cricket player ever
He was good because he played with Babe Ruth.
You know he's the last BEFORE THE Millenium.V 1 Comment
