  3. im only gonna say greatest olympian because when it comes to the olympics many of the sports here dont get massive coverage outside here, such as the likes of handball, judo, and athletics bar the diamond league etc.

    so with bolt claiming his third gold medal in the 100m in his third olympic games, can we really call him the greatest olympian the world has ever seen or will see? obviously we have many other feats that are just as fantastic, such as michael phelps claiming his 24th gold medal at these games. twenty four. to actually put that into perspective, if michael phelps was a country, he would be tied 36th with kenya in the ALL TIME medal table for all olympics. and then we go further back into the history books and look at the likes of latynina for the soviet union (russia for those who dont study history) and carl lewis.

    but if you could name a greatest, who would it be and why?

  36. i suppose for me its like, phelps has 24 golds. TWENTY FOUR GOLDS. like who the fuck could even get anywhere near to top that? but at the same time, bolts got the 3 peak of the 100m sprint, the fastest man in the world technically for eight years, and even beating drugs cheats within the likes of tyson gay and justin gatlin.

    having said that, nadia comaneci deserves a little bit of a shout, just for this

  51. I really don't watch the Olympics, but Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympian. Not only that, but he's also a sweet heart and has matured quite a bit since all the shit with him in the past. Usian Bolt is very skilled.

    Plus, look at this face. This is a swimmer face. Respect the swimmer face.

    (I'm probably pretty biased because I swam competitively for 12 years...)

  57. If you're talking about the video, it's gymnastics. The event is the uneven bars.
