Agree Kiraly. But women's GOAT has to be Mireya Luis.
Ledecky's 15:27.71 would rank #96 in the world among men.
And she was not even trying to set a record.
Of course, track already has its own "backstroke."
And this one...
Torvill & Dean redefined figure skating in a way Witt could not even imagine.
Killy was more versatile, but Stenmark was more dominant. There is no other skier who forced FIS to change the rules...
So when was the last time both USA and Australia failed to make a relay final? (And neither was disqualified.)
Is this the first time ever?
Actually, Maradona was pretty good with his hands. Just ask England. The problem was he was too short to head the ball into the goal. That's why he had to use his hand-- or the hand of God as he...
Bernard Lagat's kid sister made her first national team.
It's interesting to see how these NCAA athletes improve right after graduation.
Betsy Saina (who also made the team) once said because she...

You mean, Katie Ledecky is not the fastest because she does not compete in 50m and 100m? She is more about quantity than quality? I don't think I agree...

So what are the number of participants for each sport?
How many people have access to swimming pools year round?

Perfect time to enjoy some swimming at FINA World Championships.
Phelps made his first Olympic team (2000) and his first WR both in 200fly. So how come that he could not win in individual strokes? He won 3 golds in 100fly and 2 in 200. Ryan Lochte won 200back in...
I know that the fr winners, especially 100m winners have been traditionally regarded more highly. This is based on a few assumptions.
#1 Relay titles are less valuable than individual titles.

She could just cruise her 1500 to save something for her 200. But I guess that means no record attempt in 1500.
Dibaba's camp wanted 61.5-62, bur her coach also told Price “Don’t really worry about the splits, just try to be as smooth as possible.”

And she is fast enough to qualify for men's 1500m at the US Nationals.

Hockey and figure skating have similar entry costs in terms of skates and rinks. Coaching becomes more expensive in figure skating once a skater is over with group lessons. But that's where financial...

It depends on where you live. If you look at the background of Midori Ito, you have to assume figure skating must have been pretty accessible for her. And thanks to her success, it is even more...

1. Distance running is more accessible than soccer for men. I would change my mind if I see a world class soccer player who started playing organized soccer after 18.
2. Sprint is more accessible...
Slaney's record was set before Rowbury was born.

Rupp is criticized for this all the time... on Let's Run Forum, that is.
He usually shakes hands with one of two guys right behind him, and ignores the rest. But that's fine with me. He is no Lagat,...

Umm... ever heard of David Nalbandian? How about Marcos Baghdatis?
NR for Osako and 12 sec PB. He now owns NR in 3000m and 5000m.
NOP had a pretty producitive weekend.
You mean, in the US? Goucher and Davila (Linden) ran in 2009.
