Just a question: How do you guys define "great" athletism? IMO a great athlete doesn't only define himself by talent or abilities that make him stand him out from others but also by continuous improvement and the will to go until the maximum to get even better.
Don't get me wrong: Ronaldo and Maradona were great footballer but all time great athletes? Certainly not, especially not Maradona who basically did everything possible outside the pitch to limit his physical abilities. I'm no personal fan of him but if there's one footballer who deserves to be here, then it's CR7.
Anyway, although I certainy will miss some great names here, here's my top 15 (without any special order):

:ENG: Daley THOMPSON (IMO the greatest athlete ever who both competed and dominated in the most challenging sports discipline, I'm surprised that no one mentioned him here before)
:USA: Michael PHELPS
:USA: Carl LEWIS
:CZE: Emil ZÁTOPEK
:BEL: Eddy MERCKX
:JAM: Usain BOLT
:CZE: :USA: Martina NAVRATILOVA
:POR: Cristiano RONALDO
:USA: Michael JORDAN
:NOR: Ole Einar BJØRNDALEN
:CAN: Wayne GRETZKY
:USA: Muhammad ALI
:GER: Michael SCHUMACHER
:USA: Jim BROWN
:SWI: Roger FEDERER

But as I said above there would be plenty of other names who could be mentioned here.

I personally thought that this ranking wasn't just about great athletes but also athletes who somehow, for any reason, we are attached to or marked a specific time of our lives.

Who created this topic should have defined whether we should post our favorite athletes or the ones who we consider the best athletes in history. In my case, those two lists are very very different.
