Football/Baseball - Legendary stories abound, but did you know at the NFL combine he ran a 4.12 sec. 40-yard dash?!
Football - It's too bad he didn't compete in the internet-age.
Basketball - He is really big and really strong and really fast and a below-average dancer (see the Heat's Harlem Shake).
Baskeball (Baseball?) - The author's favorite athlete.
Football - Never missed a game in his career. Also, he might win the catagory of 'Most Intimidating Glare'.
Hockey - The only NHL player to total over 200 points in one season – a feat he accomplished four times. (Wikipedia)
Tennis - Widely considered the greatest tennis player of all time. (Wikipedia)
Swimming - Phelps ranks 42nd on the list of total Gold Medals won by a COUNTRY - beating out Mexico, India, and Egypt....
Football/Baseball - Love him or hate him, he did what he did with style.
Boxing - His victory over Sonny Liston might be the first (and greatest) instance of someone being 'Posterized'...
Basketball - He scored 100 points in a single NBA game...
Baseball - The most heroic person on this list was also an incredible athlete.
Soccer - Not to be confused with the Brazillian Ronaldo.
Soccer - He could not leave Brazil until 1974 because he was declared a national treasure! (Wikipedia)
Baseball - Ted Williams: 'They invented the All-Star Game for Willie Mays.' (Wikipedia)
Golf - He obviously has incredible skills, but it's interesting that he made the cut and Usain Bolt did not.

Track and Field - Where are all the NASCAR athletes?
MMA - It was only a matter of time before MMA drew all-time great athletes into its sport.
Track and Field - Winning 9 golds before the steroid era... impressive!
Weekend Warrior - A legend in his own mind!
