Bolt, Lewis, Jordan, Armstrong or Phelps?
Who's the greatest athlete of all time?
Notice that even soccer greats like Pele, Maradona and the Ronal-dos and -dinhos are not on my list, so Tiger Woods is surely a long shot, and I'm not considering Kasparov.
Bolt? Remember this - 9.69, 19.30! No fancy suit, or drag-saving pools.
First to hold gold in 100 and 200 meters since Carl Lewis in 1984 (who also won the long jump and relay). He smashed Michael Johnson's 12-year old 200 meters record in style! And he's apparently clean of drugs too (ironic/sad that that's the first thing that comes to mind these days!)
See the full picture? Look at it again - it is in plain sight - see the space between them all - no hundredth's of a second finish here!
Whats' in a name? How long will it last?
