Top Ten Greatest Australian Athletes of All TimeAnanya
The Top Ten
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
