best athlete so far this century?

  1. best athlete so far this century?


    My vote goes for Ronnie Coleman. No one has one an olympia but him.


    Other choices might be lance armstrong, peyton manning, barry bonds, etc.


    Who do you think?


  2. Are you asking for the past 5 years or the entire 20th century as well? haney, arnold, ronnie, yates all good choices for bodybuilders if measuring by shere title wins. Toss up really. But if you're asking about best athlete of the 21st century, you have the two covered. Lance and Bonds. My vote for the 20th century would be ....
    too many.

    Bingo. The greatest..period. Anyone that never worked out and could run a 4.15 at 235lbs and do all of the freaky **** he did is just amazing.
  5. This should be moved to the Sports Section


    I do consider bodybuilding to be a sport, but I don't consider bodybuilders to be athletes...does that any make sense?

    Its tough..I'll list by sport (current athletes)

    Baseball- Bonds,Arod or Tejada
    Basketball- Shaq or Lebron
    Football- Brady or Ray Lewis
    Golf- Woods
    Cycling-Armstrong

  6. if just for the past 5 years i would have to vote for either Bonds or Pujols (from all star break to all star break Pujols led the NL in hr's rbis and ba)

    i think lance armstrong deserves some credit as does michael schumacher (if you consider him an athlete)

    I meant for the past 5 years.

  9. Armstrong for sure. The guy is freakin superman!

  10. yeah, props to Armstrong.. Dude totally dominates that sport..

    Definitely the best pure athlete when it came to athletic ability. His ability would be freakish by today's standards. Best athlete ever is Joe Montana but I'm biased

    BTW, I wouldn't really compare athletes who play on team sports vs. athletes who play individual sports. Individual sport athletes only have themselves to rely on where team sport athletes may have to carry a bunch of other teammates and take on a bigger leadership role.

  12. Lance, Shaq, Jordan, and Bo Jackson. Those are irreplaceable.

    However, I am only 21 and don't really know too much about sports wayyyy back in the day.

    Son, and I feel I can say this since you are about the same age as my son, when you make a statement like that you are FAR older than your years. IF this isn't just a one time fluke then you have a nice future ahead of you.



    IMO lance armstrong
    Sleep Supplement 3Z BCAA: Red Raspberry and Lemon flavors
    HGH/sleep enhancer: HGHpro
    Test Booster: TestoPRO and STOKED!
    Preworkout: MANIAC Fruit Punch and Pink Lemonade

  14. last 5 years ............Lance Armstrong,,,that dude is sick with his

  15. lance, bonds, pujols, lebron, shaq, p.manning, ladainian tomlinson, jamal lewis I really can't name em all without forgetting a ton....

  16. really too much criteria to pick a select group. If were talking athletic ability only you'd include people like bo knows hip problems, neon dickhead sanders, barry sanders, jim thorpe, carl lewis, randy moss, micheal jordan, lebron etc etc

  17. Pudz (Mariuz Pudzianowski - World's strongest man 3 consecutive years)

    Not your typical athelete, but the best for me!
