    Usain Bolt looks as though he is in with a shout. Bradman for obvious reasons, but the ultimate has to be......



    Beryl Burton. WAG.

    Sergey Bubka was another in Track & Field that dominated.



    Alexander Karelin was unbeaten in 13 years of greco-roman wrestling and was a freak athlete and maybe the hardest man on the planet.



    I believe Wayne Gretzky is the closest to Bradman in terms of the statistical comparison (though still a distance behind) from major sports.

But either way, Armstrong didn't carry his dominance through the rest of the season in the manner required to make him comparable to a Bradman.
    TBF it's purely techincal that he hasn't. Six of his pee samples from 99 showed EPO when tested after the fact. He noteably refused permission for the samples to be retested too. From the BBC. Sorry he had cancer & all, but that doesn't make him clean. Or dirty, necessarily, he added for legal purposes.

    Anyway: Julio Cesar Chavez. He went on too long so his record looks merely great (108 wins, 2 draws, 6 defeats), but he actually won his first 88 fights and was undefeated in his first 91.

    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Eddy Merckx the Belgian cyclist from the 60's and 70's has to be Bradman's only competition in my opinion. 5 Tour de France's (could of won more but focused on the other grand tours in 1973, lost time due to after effects of a fan attack in 1975 and could well have won tours before his 1st one he competed in in 1969), also won 5 Giro d Italia's (Could of been 6 but was booted out of the 1969 one when leading it with a day to go on highly suspicious doping test (They booted him out and when he appealed the organisers had destroyed one sample and lost the other). Won 1 out of 3 of all races he competed in other his career which in fields of up to 200 riders is quite an achievement.

    In Aussie Rules, I'd say Peter Hudson. No one has come close to kicking seven goals a game over their career, and it might've been more had his knee not been ruined.

    Bill Russell smokes Michael Jordan for basketball dominance. 11 NBA championships in 13 seasons.

    That Bradman scoring analysis was such a crock.

    Russell was unquestionably one of the all time greats of the NBA, but that Championship record has as much to do with the strength of that Celtics team as him individually. As great as he was at an individual level, there are plenty of good judges who considered him only the second best Centre of his generation, behind Wilt Chamberlain.

    I'm a Hawks man and so rate Hudson as highly as anyone, but to be fair his career goalkicking average in the VFL was 5.6 goals per game. The best ever, yes, but not quite 7 per match!

    That's his whole career (including TFL), so maybe that part shouldn't be included.

    Over his career he kicked 1,874 goals in senior matches spanning the period 1963 to 1982. His impressive tally increases to 2,191 when night series and representative games are included, averaging over 7 goals a game over his entire career. Hudson was kept goalless just three times during his senior career, by Richmond's Barry Richardson in 1969, Carlton's Rod Austin in 1977 and Brucey Greenhill of TFL club Sandy Bay in 1978.

    Fair enough mate - yep, his figures in the Tassie league are nothing short of phenomenal. Incredible to think what he final career tally might have been had been able to play more than three-and-a-half games from 1972 to 1976.
