9th tied. Jim thorpe 1909- 1928.

My personal choice is Michael Phelps #1 and Jim Thorpe 2nd. Kiraly was a surprise, not so much Pele. Since he has won more world cups than anyone and soccer has 4 billion fans. Tiger wood & Serena Williams are the only Athletes legend still active.
You lost me. Absolutely ignorant on sports, except when I watched the 1966 Soccer World Cup on tv. Only time I ever watched a match.
But good try CP. Wishing you well.
Still a Man 107 years old in Belize who can farm, bikes, swim everyday and has sex occasionally. Is my hero over over some millionaire athlete.
I some investors for Colombia eco village on the beach vs Bolivia. Taking longer, yet more possibilities.
Good that your still around.
