I just have to say that if you're going to include golfers as "athletes" then you must include race car drivers. I know there are lots of race car driver fans in here...Met comes to mind. :-D

I guess. It seemed like there were 15 good candidates without much debate, do you really see many people missing who you think are the best athlete of the decade?

Nah not really, the three females I mentioned maybe. I could probably think of others but that's a good list to go ahead and start with.

I don't think that there can be any argument against Haile Gebrselassise as athlete of the decade. In the oldest sport with the most participants he set 27 world records.

In my eyes, you Met, are the race car driver of the decade.
