    so? how does that stop them being great sportsmen?

    that really doesn't make much sense, the only sports you could use is soccer, running and (maybe) tennis!

    ud look for the man who dominated his sport like no other. so aryton senter shouldnt be in the list. he could a/woulda been great. imagine the schumacer senter battle, but alas it never was to be. far to many people to select one, its to opionated to just choose one sportsman

    senna could've been the greatest ever, but sadly he didn't live long enough to prove that, so he can't be called the greatest ever as far as achievements or accomplishments go....

    Add Lance Armstrong and Barry Bonds to the list.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Lance is more of a 21st century athlete.

    I wouldnt want to comment on sportsmen/women I have never seen play their sport whilst I have been aware of sport (and so the obvious Pele,Bradman I cant coment on,as I can only go off what other people have said)

    So for me, my list must include ian Botham,Jerry Rice (wide receiver for the San Fran 49ers and Oakland Raiders),Navratilova,Zidane,Maradona,Carl Lewis,Daley Thompson
    rave down, hit the ground
