Greatest Sportsman Ever

  1. Its fucking obvious man every bit of evidence points to it

    If one favourite is 10/1 and an other is 6/4 the its obviously more difficult for the 10/1 shot to win

    Probably only 4 people have a realistic chance of winning a darts tournament where ad 50 + have a golf one

    Tyson..?

    Hamilton? Schuey?
     
  5. That already been explained, ar the start of a golf tournament up to 50 are capable of winning which is proved by the variety of winners each week and the odds reflect that.

    Alex Honnold, maybe not the greatest sportsman of all time but I reckon he's got the greatest sporting achievement of all time. If you class climbing as a sport.

    Not even close. Compare his achievements to those of Eddie Merckx.

    Michael Jordan.

    It has to be a top level sport that needs athleticism and he dominated his.

    She still does. The only reason it was taken away from her was because of the drug cheats.

    I don’t care if she was paced by men or antelopes.... she ran 26.2 miles faster than any other woman ever, without relying on drugs, and nobody has eaten it yet.

    Pretty amazing in my book.

    I was referring to her not paced by men run in 2005, which was registered as the record (as opposed to her world best when running with men). That got broken by a Kenyan legally in 2017. She still holds the world best.

    Marathon records are odd things though as the times are very, very dependent on the specificis of the course. (I guess that applies to road races of all distances.)

    Then a large Poker tournament is even more difficult. These people are ultimate sportsmen.

    Main event WSOP. I rest my case.

    I've enjoyed playing both snooker and darts but calling them sport is a bit of a push. More of a past time I'd say. Having said that, there were some fine athletic specimens competing in both when I was growing up. Bill Werbeniuk springs to mind.

    I would certainly say Ali because it was he who proved that big men could box skillfully and that they didn't have to be just sluggers who could take endless punishment
