Greatest Athletes of All Time
The Contenders: Page 18
Great at many positions on the offensive and defensive side of the ball, as well as being a handful on the basketball court and a freak of nature in size, build and agility.

Dominated his sport (volleyball) for decades. Considered the greatest VB player ever, and IMHO in the top 50 athletes of all time.
And Paolo Bernardi? He was voted the best volley player of all time TOGETHER with kiraly
He has the most nfl records of all time and is on the all time team.
He has the most nfl records of all time
Scotty Pippen should be above most of these athletes listed here. If you ever watched him play with Jordan you would agree in comparison to some of these players that are listed way too high on the list.
Why is he here he should be way higherV 2 Comments
Reenergized Northampton Saints Seconds. Period. Unplayable at his best, unwatchable at worst.
Leadership, overall athletic ability and passing talent. There has never been anyone better. Captain America - Captain comeback. Retired #1 quarterback rating of all time. Roger made everyone around him better. No one else on this list can say that.
He is known as 'THE WALL'.. The second best batsman in the world after sachin
The wall of Indian Cricket. Won more matches than Sachin, Sourav, Sehway put together. Saved even more matches when the curtains were down. A great human being.V 1 Comment
There is no athlete in all history that accomplished what this man, "The Greatest Sportsman" in all Soviet and Russian History accomplished. Eighty (80) world records in an undefeated ten year career (1970-1980). That is ten (10) world records per year. Further, two time Olympic Gold medal winner (1972 and 1976), and ten (10) time world-champion. Germany attacked with two respective silver and bronze medal winners in both Olympics, but could never over-power. Nor could any human over-power him on the planet period. The first man to press and clean and jerk 500 pounds or better. Squatted a verified, in Olympic Weightlifting style, 1014 pounds in the 70's. On the cover of year 1976 Sport's Illustrated magazine as "World's Strongest Man".
Alexyeev was voted the GREATEST athletic Sportsmen in ALL Soviet History. That fact alone trumps all athletes in the west. From 1970 to 1978 undefeated. Further, 80 World Record in eight years. That is, ten world records per year. No one ever comes close in total strength, quickness, power, and durability than Alexyeev. James Salemi, Schiller Park Illinois, USA
