    The only one I can think of would be Roger Federer, though there may very well be others in less well-known sports.

    He is outstanding. Federer would be more dominant but golf has always been more competitive than tennis, which is routinely dominated by one individual.

    I take it that when you use the term best athlete then Phil Taylor cannot be considered. :biggrin: :biggrin:

    Seriously, there can be little doubt now that Tiger will overtake Jack Nicklaus in Majors won, it’s just a question of how many he finishes with.

    Comparing Woods and Federer is impossible but history will tell us one day how fortunate we are to see them at their best.

    I was thinking of him when I typed earlier GH but we were talking ‘at the minute’.

    Phil Taylor has been a remarkable darts player, utterly dominating what is a very, very competitive sport/game.

    That Aussie guy with the big feet that won dollops of gold medals at the last olympics must be a contender (if not a household name).<br>But, I agree with Corm’s original choice – Tiger Woods.<br>The ultimate sport must require physical fitness with exquisite touch and skill. Snooker requires the latter but not the former. Ditto darts.<br>Golf and Tennis though probably need both (and, like snooker and darts) require tremendous bottle  at the heighest level.

    I think he’s won more olympic gold medals than anyone else.<br> And in a sport like rowing, damn you have to be fit.

    And yes, he did get a Sir ige….
