Goat James Posted December 9, 2017 Share Posted December 9, 2017 So I was thinking, who is the best athlete in the world? Obviously it's impossible to compare a skier to a soccer player; it's really hard to rank athletes within their own sport and even harder to other sports. I feel like the criteria has to be a mix between accomplishments within the sport and the physique. Example, I rank Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Leo Messi, even though I think Messi may be the better soccer player, but CR7 has got a physical element that Messi lacks. I would also rank Mario ahead of Gretzky on this list because of the same reason. I think my male top five would include Lebron James, Cristiano Ronaldo, Usain Bolt, Roger Federer and Sidney Crosby. What do you guys think? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
