Top Ten Greatest Australian Athletes of All TimeAnanya
The Top Ten
Greatest sportsman of all time. Amazing for Australia. Did so much for Australia and the beautiful game of cricket
Sir Don Bradman was twice as good as the next athlete in his generation. Never has this been achieved by any other sports person especially Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan. In fact today, his record is still 50% more than the leading players on average runs scored. And other facts that should be considered are the laws were changed subsequently to protect the batsman (see the bodyline series) but Bradman had to play through it. And all without the protective headgear of today and the super springy lightweight bats. Bradman is by far the best cricket player the world has ever seen and should also be considered as the best athlete worldwide too.
The comment that these two gentlemen who are no doubt great but in my humble opinion not the greatest are voted into such a position due to the heavy USA American and North American influence on the results. Even today, the laws remain changed

Simply the greatest.
She deserves the number 1.
As I have written elsewhere, the greatest can be considered according to International recognition of their sports.The Olympic credit is the most important.
Margaret Court is one of the most accomplished athletes of all sports.
Bradman maybe an Australian legend but his sport is of low international acceptance, so the same is for him as an athlete.
Absolutely legend a leader women in world tennis with 24 grand slams singles title a record that still stands
The greatest sports star of our country undefeated as a professional a record of 100 percent BETTER THAN BRADMAN

The most popular sport in the world still isn't enough developed and popular in this country.But at least a mention can be made.
One of the greatest players of his era 'Artie' Quill was an undisputed champion. Starting his career with the Pyrmont club, Quill moved to Wallsend in 1931 on the offer of work during the tough depression years. What Wallsend got, was a forward of exceptional ability as Quill's goalscoring feats shattered every record. Over a period of 24 senior seasons he reportedly scored 868 goals in premiership and cup games. Unfortunately Quill never got the international adulation he deserved, playing just 7 times for Australia.
Non of these reported stats are officially recognised by any international 'authority'.
But this doesn't mean that it is not true.
