Ouch. Got owned there.

Hehe.

I'd say whoever is the best footballer ever, could also be considered the best athlete.

Since football is the biggest sport in the world, it's also the sport where it's the hardest to become number one.

So this debate is the eternal "Pelé or Maradona" argument.

Personally, I'll give the nod to Pelé.

-Hedge

  Exactly! One of the patterns I have observed is that it's always Americans who were the greatest at some American sport who are regarded as the greatest ever. Like I said in my previous post, it's close to impossible to say who's the best athlete o the 20th Cetury, because there are so many diferet sports which involve so may different skills.

  Regardless, some o the World's highest paid atheltes are American, for the simple reason that Americans have more money to pay them. However, I stand by what I said that Pele was the greatest ever, because he was the best of times at preferred sport of 96% of the World's population. People who have won the seven Olympic gold medals(Spitz, Popov, Lewis) ARE also contenders.

Michael Johnson,  the freak to end all freaks.  Not many world records will last for 30 years, not many will last for 40 years... his 200m record might last 50-80 years.  No one has even come close to 19.32, the fastest time since then was q 19.70 run by MJ in 2000.

Roman Šebrle, current WR holder and olympic champion for the decathlon.

It requires great strength, endurance. An alround athlete.
Probably ideal height 1m85 and weight 86 kg to be an alround athlete.


Should work a bit on his front double bi though.

Dont ever say anything about people being racist toxic...you try to slip in your little .2 sterotypes and u couldnt be further from the truth
...The basis from which I inquire about the finincial status of the crickets most celebrated athlete is to point out the popularity and marketability of said sport....It is popular becaus of history. But America football on the other hand is extremely marketable hence you see the top players making 100mil dollars.

And I really thing you need to get out more because blanket statements reveal lack of exposure...

p.s.  you are a gay
