Usain Bolt I'm The Greatest Athlete WHO EVER LIVED!

Usain Bolt is the GREATEST athlete in the history of all mankind ... so says Usain Bolt ... who just CRUSHED everyone in the 200 meter final.

*Sidenote -- don't bitch about the "spoiler" ... it happened ... get over it.*

Anyway, moments after he captured gold, Usain modestly touched on his accomplishments ... reportedly telling the media:

"I'm now a legend. I'm also the greatest athlete to live."

Usain Bolt -- Greatest Athlete?

  • Yes
  • No
Bolt also gave the ol' tip of the hat to American sprinting legend Michael Johnson ... adding, "I am in the same category as Michael Johnson. I'm honored. It's all about Michael Johnson for me."

So ... greatest athlete ever? Better than Ali? Better than Michael Jordan? Jim Thorpe? Michael Phelps? Pele?

Discuss.

Bolt is not the greatest by a long shot
He holds the 100 & 200m world records, but he is not the greatest by a long shot. The greats also became the GREATEST because of the context of their performances. Ali, Jessie Owens, Jack Johnson, Joe Louis, Jackie Robinson, Jim Thorpe and Stephen Kiprotich all overcame real-life adversity to achieve greatness status. All of them had causes and fought outside of their sport just be treated equally as a human being and in some cases to be alive. Bolt is not in this class and currently does not have the attitude or etiquette to be a champion beyond his world class sprints. Just a few months ago Bolt caved into the media pressure when there where gossip reports about he and his girlfriend so I'm not sure if he could have excelled under the real adversity subject to others listed above.Even Ali who said he was the greatest boxer of all time said tat the time of his comments he knew it was not true... but it in hindsight it may have been the case. Examples of champions who are destined to be among the greatest of all-time include athletes like David Rudisha, Karani James and Allyson Feelix - who all have causes bigger than themselves and the sport, and people who are proud of their gracious representation of their respective nations. There are many others in sports around the globe who are among the greatest, but Bolt is not the greatest who ever lived by a long shot.

Usain Bolt I'm The Greatest Athlete WHO EVER LIVED!
I personally think he's the greatest athlete that has ever lived but of course this is all subjective.Someone else might see all these guys and think someone else is.I think though one aspect of greatness he still hasn't mastered is humility.Let others bestow that title on u don't boast about ur self.That being said I don't think Jordan,Ali,Pele or any other athlete has been so dominant and a head of their competitors Bolt is simply out of this world.
