He is like Willie Mays but better.
Greatest rightfielder in baseball history. Great hitter, including 4 batting titles. 12 gold gloves, led the national league in assists 5 times, a cannon for an arm. 1966 national league mvp. 1971 world series mvp. Hit safely on 14 straight world series games. 12 or 13 all star game appearances. But above all, probably one of the greatest humanitarians ever. Lost his life aiding the victims of a Nicaragua earthquake on December 31st 1972. He should be way above 291st place on this list...
Not just good at hockey, she is good at everything.
Mookie Betts is fast, can hit, and can make some great catches.V 1 Comment
He's a great three point shooter and a better defender. He shut down Thompson and Redick the entire time during the playoffs. - Thisgoronsonfire

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.
