  • Top Ten Athletes Based On Speed, Power, Strength, Size, Competitiveness etc...

    HOW WE DID IT: We gave the performance stats and achievement records of 79 male athletes to a panel of 5 judges, and asked them to rank the competitors based on six criteria: speed; vision and reflex; stamina and recovery; coordination and flexibility; power, strength and size; and success and competitiveness. The final category examined success—records held and victories—as well as competitiveness, based on the sport's popularity. Soccer, for example, the world's most popular sport, was judged the most competitive. The panel gave a total score for each athlete in the first round. Sixty athletes were eliminated in the second round, either because of low scores or because they were not first in their field. Our panelists then made the final ranking. Yale statistician John Emerson helped normalize the scores so no single panelist could exert undue influence.

    THE JUDGES: Ed Coyle, exercise physiologist, University of Texas; has studied top athletes, including cyclist Lance Armstrong. Steve Fleck, chairman of the Sport Science Department at Colorado College and former head of the Physical Conditioning Program for the U.S. Olympic Committee. Eric Heiden,orthopedic surgeon at a Salt Lake City sports medicine and training facility; won five gold medals in speed skating in 1980. Kris Homsi, director of sport science for Sparq, a training and assessment company used in college recruiting. Mark Verstegen runs a group of training facilities called Athletes Performance.

    AND THE WINNER IS: ROMAN SEBRLE. The Czech decathlete could jump over Shaquille O’Neal. He could throw a 16-pound ball the length of a 53-foot yacht. From a running start, he could leap over a two-lane highway. Mr. Sebrle has ideal size, according to physiologists, and expertise over a range of athletic pursuits, employing the speed of an NFL back and the vertical jump of an National Basketball Association forward. Some judges questioned whether Mr. Sebrle could withstand a tackle by an NFL lineman, but none questioned his talent in the 10 track and field events that make up the decathlon. He has won Olympic gold and silver medals for the Czech Republic and is the current world champion.

                They clearly failed to factor in intelligence or meaningfulness to the team. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady should be in there. David Ortiz, too.

                          I've been seeing this list everywhere lately, who are these guys and what makes them so credible? Like Burgundy said, they just basically took the biggest name in every sport and put em in random order...how is it that there aren't 2 athletes for one sport?...anyhow, no top ten "greatest" list is complete without the almighty Tiger Eldrick Woods

                            How the hell did Ronaldo beat out C.Ronaldo, Gerrard, Kaka especially when they say that strength and power have been taken into account. How the hell Mayweather wasnt above Lebron Id dont know, maybe because basketball is more popular.

                            To all the people who are asking where Tiger, Brady and the like are, they should probably be in a greatest sportsmen list, but there not athletes. But at the same time, neithers Federer, and I dont see why non physical factors are counted in someones athletic ability?

                            So yeh its a stupid list, but a decent idea
