Ingemar is one of the best alpine racer of all time if not the best. He is not only a great alpine racer but also a great athlete. They had to change the sport just because he always won.
I think Ingemar Stenmark is one of the best athletes of all time; he won 2 olympic gold medals, 1 olympic bronze medal and 86 world cup medals! (Also some other medals to). They had to constantly change the rules because he was too good! I have heard that in Sweden, people stopped whatever they were doing just because he was on the television. Even the parlament stopped!
That, if I have to say so myself, is a great athlete.

One of the best pace bowlers ever. - AGK
She is the best of all time in the sport with the highest vo2max-test (that means how much you can breathe out per minut and kilo of your body) and the sport that takes most calories to practise, cross country skiing! Despite having 3 years of hard time, she worked to the top again to dominate the sport for years.
The only person who should be on this list is Bjoergen. Try doing what she does for a few moments (chasing Johaug) and then tell me that there's someone who is a better athlete than her.
He is like Willie Mays but better.
