    23. Irina Privolova
    24. Tirunesh Dibaba
    25. David Rudisha
    26. Elena Slesarenko
    27. Astrid Kumbernuss
    28. Tatyana Lebedeva
    29. Cathy Freeman

    Note: In putting this list together I realised that we're all likely to have our country and event biases. It may be an idea to limit number per country or event. Just a suggestion.

    How dare you rank Kevin Little two slots below Usain Bolt.

        Sent my list to you mumpy.

        Mine is very international and includes athletes from many eras. Probably more women on it than you guys have on yours. Gotta put my idols growing up on there. 8-)

        Only one Canadian on it(although now I think aboot it I may need to do another revision ops: ) and he is still competing. I think y'all know who that is.

        I will say my number one and that is JJK.

          And that's a bad thing, why? What's the fun in just compiling lists when you can wax eloquently (or not) on why yours are the best. I'll go open:

          yeah, mostly male Amis, oh well.
          Marlow please delete your list and PM me with it. We have the discussion afterwards. The whole point is that we don't know who's people's choices are, so the results are a suprise.

          After the results, i'll break them down by , sex, country, event etc etc etc

          then i'll reveal everyone's personal lists and they can give us reasons and we can discuss them

          This is supposed to get us through long winter of nothing to discuss :

              I PM'ed you mine yesterday. They are ridiculously nostalgic, but as a teenager you glom on to favorites ( or favourites) much more so than as an adult !
              As an aside, I pointedly included no flopping high jumpers or fiberglassing pole vaulters. Both events were RUINED in my humble opinion by these inventions.

                Nostalgic? Nothing wrong with that.

                They might be running 1.41 now, but I saw Marvelous Mal and he would be close to the top on my list.

                  Re: T&FN Forum Official Favourite Athlete of All Time

                  The first ten of my list are fairly predictable but I'd be quite surprised if anyone else chooses some of my 11-20 picks.

                    An athlete can be a favorite because of performance, personality or if personally known.
                    One's favorites may not be known to anyone else.
                    Dithering done, here is my list:
                    (Sent by PM.)

                    Can we revise our list ?
                    You can proceed however you choose, it's your personal favourites for whatever reason and yes i'm talking track and field :lol:

                    We might do best ever at a later date to get us through those cold winter nights
                    Or T&FNs least favourite athletes. :twisted:

                      Thanks for all the entries do far but keep them coming as this doesn't work unless we have high numbers of entries, so please encourage everyone to enter.

                      There are some very interesting choices so far, too few women, too many drug cheats and quite a few i've never heard of :shock:

                      This is going to be fun and give us lots to discuss so please PM me more suggestions.

                        Re: T&FN Forum Official Favourite Athlete of All Time

                        I just did mine. Cornucopia of the past 60 years, some names, I am pretty sure, will appear only on my list . The top 5-6 were easy, after that, I could easily add 10-20 more in any order.

                        Hey mump, has the girl the right to change her mind in the next few days?

                          My guess is that the list will show our ages, and our countries!

                            This will be tough for me: hard to distinguish between favorite athletes and favorite "people" (those I've had occasion to befriend, and are hard to judge just on pure fandom terms).

                              I tried to combine those two sentiments. That's why I have there a few Czechs and Slovaks that I met personally and liked.
