Greatest Olympian of All Time

21 Eric Heiden

How is a guy who won 5 gold medals in a single games competing at totally different distances not #1 let alone even on this list. Can you imagine Usain Bolt winning his events and then 1500, 5000 and 10000 m?!

39 Mo Huilan

She was the greatest AA gymnast that China ever produced.

She had PERFECT form and the highest level of difficulty in all four disciplines: vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise.

Had she not got robbed of her score on her double twisting Yurchenko (when every one was doing the single twisting Yurchenko), she would have been the Olympic AA Champion. - Rexbrooks

40 Kim Rhode

One of only 6 people in the history of the Olympics to medal in 5 games in a row and the only person in a position to make it 6. She is the only one of those six who had to change sports when her event was discontinued.
