Who's the greatest athlete you've ever seen? I think good current candidates are Leo Messi (soccer/football), Sachin Tendulkar (cricket), Usain Bolt (track and field), and LeBron James (basketball). But there are plenty of others, past and present. Who's your choice?
Seattle Slew , John Henry and Curlin .
It's hard for me to pick out of those three they were and are great athletes .
I have always seem gymnasts as the best all around athletes. Power, speed, stamina, grace, agility . . . . . . . . . .
At the top of that list for the women for me would be would be Svetlana Khorknia. For the men is would be Sawao Kato.
Vincent Edward "Bo" Jackson
Even though a decade has passed since the end of his professional career, Bo Jackson is still widely regarded as the "benchmark for multi-sport athletes." Not only did he succeed at the highest levels in both football and baseball, he became an icon around the world with two words ?Bo Knows."
Born in 1962, in the steel town of Bessemer, Ala., Bo was the eighth of ten children. About his childhood, Bo remarked in his autobiography, Bo Knows Bo, ?We never had enough food. But at least I could beat on other kids and steal their lunch money and buy myself something to eat. But I couldn?t steal a father. I couldn?t steal a father?s hug when I needed it.? Because of a crippling stuttering problem, Bo did not show his talents in the classroom, but on the athletic field as an exceptional baseball and football player. After accepting a scholarship from Auburn University, Bo was awarded the Heisman Trophy in 1985 after rushing for 1,786 yards. When Bo Jackson came out of college as the best football player in the country, he shocked the sports world by deciding to play both professional football and baseball. This was unheard of, but not only did he play two sports, he starred and excelled in both sports.
Bo made a national name for himself as a Major League Baseball player from 1986-1995 for the Kansas City Royals, Chicago White Sox, and California Angels. He ended his baseball career with a .250 batting average, 141 homeruns, and 415 RBI in 2,393 at-bats. As a running back for the Los Angeles Raiders from 1987-1992, after the MLB season concluded, Bo averaged an impressive 5.4 yards per carry and dazzled television audiences with his many highlights.
