Under rated because he came after legend bob hayes.

29 Valeriy Borzov

Greatest ever over two Olympics 72 & 76

30 Mohamed Farah

He isn't even a sprinter

31 Tommie Smith

Any all time top ten list without Tommie Smith is invalid, inaccurate, and blasphemous. When you only think his demonstration in the Olympic Medal Ceremony, and not his accomplishments in the 200/220...400/440...and even the 100 yards/ miss out on someone who is absolutely in the top 5 of all time

32 Percy Williams
33 Paul Nash

In an age before drugs - he might have won in Mexico City if he had been allowed to compete in 1968.
