    Best Sportsman in the world?

    Obviously it is impossible too say really but who are the men or women that really stand out from the rest?

    Valentino Rossi and Tiger Woods are two names that spring too mind

    Michael Johnson.

    Bet he could still beat the fastest now even though he's retired.

    armstrong has been accused of concentrating exclusively on the "tour de france" while avoiding a lot of other races....that could even have contributed to his overall preparedness and strong showing at the tour...but of course recovering from cancer and then winning 7 consecutive titles in one of the toughest races in the world is a fantastic achievment....
