2 Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali (January 17th 1942 - June 3rd 2016) was an American former professional boxer . He was generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the history of the sport.

Originally known as Cassius Clay, at the age of 22 he won the world heavyweight championship from Sonny Liston. Ali changed his name after joining the Nation of Islam in 1964, subsequently converting to Sunni Islam in 1975, and later to Sufism. In 1967, three years after Ali had won the heavyweight championship, he was publicly vilified for his refusal to be conscripted into the U.S. military, based on his religious beliefs and opposition to the Vietnam War. Ali was eventually arrested and found guilty on draft evasion charges; he was stripped of his boxing title, and his boxing license was suspended. He was not imprisoned, but did not fight again for nearly four years while his appeal worked its way up to the U.S. supreme Court, where it was eventually successful.

Muhammad, he's a hero. He never gave up even with all of the set backs he had in life. No one thought an African American could be a sports star, but he changed that.

3 Pele Pele Edson Arantes do Nascimento, known as Pelé, is a retired Brazilian professional footballer who played as a forward.

Pele was an absolute master when it came to ball control, he played with more skill than most modern players do. But, in my opinion, still only second best to, well... George best.

He accomplish more thing than everyone he's is the best soccer player of all time 3 world cups that really hard to accomplish

Should be first! He's the God of Football! Please.. They consider him the 'God'.

4 Babe Ruth Babe Ruth George Herman Ruth Jr., better known as Babe Ruth, was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935.

You all have to realize what babe Ruth did is amazing. Just imagine a tiny ball coming at you. You have no idea were it Is going to come from. You don't even know what pitch the pitcher is going to throw and you have to it 400 feet. Babe Ruth did that 615 Times.

GREATEST EVER! Not just in baseball, but I think in all of sports

Babe ruth was a great baseball player

What is LeBron James doing on this list? He is lucky to be a top 50 athlete. He is nowhere near the top 10 - Bronson

I agree that LBJ is still quite good but MJ is still 10x more better than lebron james

10 Ronaldinho Ronaldinho Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, commonly known as Ronaldinho or Ronaldinho Gaúcho, is a retired Brazilian footballer.

No. 5! A top class striker also with great skills. A guy who trained his left leg to dominate after his injury to his right! Came back from recovery and was more powerful than ever in the field. Winner of many awards plus highest goal scorer overall for the FIFA World Cup.

He is the world's most appreciated athlete. People just love to see him in the field. The game saver of FC Barcelona. A true athlete who showed pure masterly of the skills of soccer overall. Very disciplined fellow as well. Never heard in the media of him assaulting anyone or havin multiple girlfriends. Role model for many soccer enthusiasts these days. Should be no.3!

The Contenders

11 Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is a former Indian cricketer and captain, widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time.

12 Wayne Gretzky Wayne Gretzky

He was called the GREAT ONE how much more epic can you get. He has a bunch of records in playing THE GREATEST GAME ON EARTH.

Gretzky is the only guy on the list that makes the rest of his sport's Hall of Fame look completely irrelevant.

This list is a joke. Nobody changed their sport like Wayne did. He did more for his sport than any other person on here.

He should at least be in the top 3. he could score, deke, and make great plays. not to mention, he retired with 61 records!

20 Michael Phelps Michael Phelps Michael Fred Phelps II is an American competition swimmer and the most decorated Olympian of all time, with a total of 22 medals in three Olympiads.

I oblige everyone to vote for Michael Phelps! No need to be captious with every insignificant thing a person has done. Ok, he'd smoked a bong, been pulled over for drink driving, we are not perfect in any shape or form. The disparity between Michael Phelps and his competitors is paramount, no other swimmer (beside Mark Spitz) comes close to what he has achieved in this great sport. The average person doesn't realise how much effort goes into Swimming, 3-4 times a week getting up at 3am for a 2 hour morning session and another 5 sessions in the afternoon and that's only one week. Most professional Swimmers still need to work, making a career as a professional swimmer is a lot more difficult compare to a professional basketball player.

Michael phelps number 18!?!? What the heck he should be in the top 14. He has 20+ Olympic medals went to 4 Olympic games and has/does hold a ton of world records and swimming is the hardest sport it requires every muscle and this man toke all of it and made into something nobody will ever forget the greatest Olympian of all time!

Umm no Michael should be 1st! He is the most decorated OLimpian of all time and he is 16th? You people most be crazy! Michael is one of the greatest athletes of all time, and just because most people think swimming is one of the easiest sports doesn't mean that he should be this far under! Swimming requires every muscle in your body and this man used them to make swimming a popular sport.

He is the best athlete that has ever live
