    It's hard to compare all the types of sports and name one as most athletic out of everyone, But if I had to choose the best athlete overall I would probably pick LeBron James or Terrell Owens, as much as I hate both of them, they each could of gone pro in two different sports and are in the best physical shape of they're lives...but like I said, hard to pin point one because theres such a wide variety of sports.

    Why isn't he? Because he runs at a steady pace for a long distance. That's not "athletic" to me.

    Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Adrian Peterson, Usain Bolt, heck anyone that combines more than just ONE single skill in their athletic field.

    I know old women that run cross country. Sorry.

    lol and I know about 4000 people who can run in short bursts for half a basketball court for 48 minutes.

    Footballers get a break every 3 minutes.

    And none of the above could run 100m at 17 seconds 422 times in a row...without rest.

    Basketballers and Footballers do not compare to long distance runners, anyone with any semblance of sporting knowledge knows this.

    being athletic is more then just being dominant at one area of the body. This guy probably has the best physical structure in the world as a runner, but do i think he can tomahawk a basketball leaving his elbow in the rim? no. thats why its hard to call anyone the most athletic based off only watching them play they're respective sports alone.

    The reason I said LeBron and T.O. is because both of them could of gone pro in each different sports.

    Usain Bolt? Kobe Bryant? TO???????

    Haille has broken 26 world records and won gold medals in Olympic and World championships for over 15 years now. He has won gold medals in races from 1500m to the marathon.

    If in 15 years time Usain Bolt is breaking World Records in the 400m, I'll happily compare him to Gebrselassie.
