Default Who is better in terms of dominating their sport

Rank them if you can.

Federer, Tiger, Phelps, Fedor, Sarena, Bolt, or Armstrong

All i know is Bolt has to be #1. I haven't seen anyone even come close to making him pay them any attention at all. He even showboats to end races and still wins by a huge gap. The other people at least show signs of weakness sometimes but Bolt just seems to be in his own league in racing.

yeah, its just insane how easy he makes it look. its kinda hard to judge him because nobody even heard about him until the Olympics, but daaayyaammm, he's just playing with his competition out there.

Is that the dude who took off his shoes at the end of a race and had someone spray them with a fire extinguisher?

Not a tennis fan, but Serena looses on a fairly consistent basis doesn't she?

as far as i know, her and Venus have the most grand slams, with Serena winning more of them and the head to heads. They seem to not play hard for normal tournaments but then flip the switch for the big ones.

different sports, different set of skills. Armstrong is near the end of his career and the others still have a long way to go. Tiger could win another 5-10 majors easily, Nicklaus won 8 I think after the age of 30. Federer could still easily win another 2-4 majors. Bolt and Phelps are both still super young.

Tiger still has a ways to go before he passes Nicklaus as the GOAT. People forget that on top of his 18 wins he also had 19 second place finishes. That is flat out incredible.

That was my point exactly, they all have a long ways to go, including Tiger. Tiger has more majors at his age then Jack did. Like I said Jack won 8 majors after the age of 30. Tiger is 31 and he has 14. Jack has 18.

Yeah, I agree. He actually grew up near my grandma's house/farm. She used to tell me there was this really fast boy who was going to the Olympics and stuff but she is 80, I just thought she was senile or something. Then I saw bolt on tv. Man, he destroyed the other racers. Jamaica has the best sprinters in the world, hands down. Did you see the race where he stopped to sign a new endorsement contract in the middle of the race and still won?
