Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Michael Jordan only has two olympic medals. And Pele has zero. And Michael Phelps has 21. So he must be 10x better than the two combined.

Oh wait, maybe not every sport is a serious Olympic sport and not every sport is divided into 20 different styles each giving an opportunity to win medals in every Olympics the athlete participates.

Let's first give Usain Bolt a chance to win the backwards 100m and the no-arms 100m.

Let's also not forget the 100m medley.

And the 4x100 medley relay.

In before some old grump comes and say all modern athletes are drugged and dont deserves the title. It should be given to some ancient greek who won the hide and seek tournament during that age.

Although I dont think he is the best evr athlete, average body tbh. But what he has acheived atm is simply outstanding, and should be appreciated.

Oh and these best ever discussions suck. They will only generate bias and hatred without bringing any substance to the subject.

The amount of swimming disciplines needs to be severely cut down. Butterfly should be eliminated altogether. Maybe the breaststroke as well. Distances should also be cut in about half.

And remove a handful of "championships" please. What other sport has a gazzillion World Championships and European Championships and whatnot each year? There's like one every other month.

As for the questions asked...

I'd say no, no and not for me to answer.

Not the best athlete of all time but definitely one of the greatest Olympians of all time. Dominated his sport like few ever have and is probably the greatest swimmer ever. Much respect to Phelps. I remember hanging out with him in Greece in 2004 he was such a cool and normal guy...nice to see him come so far.

Do you even glory hunt?

Its like Remi said, LBJ for example has a shot for one gold whereas PHELPS has for many.

Your Thoughts...Your Thoughts... as dagoods would say
let's say that his discipline allows him to win several medals in the same competition.
there are other athletes which dominate their discipline.
take for example teddy riner who got the gold medal in judo. he has been absolutly magistral, he could have win against a bear or a gorilla





I strictly have nothing to say but I want that comes out.

Well I believe that Bolt's accomplishments are more impressive than Phelps' imo.

His 100m World Record was among the most impressive sports moments I've witnessed in my lifetime.
I remember the discussion in the mid 00s when the WR hardly improved if the human limit is reached soon. And if we will see someone run faster than 9.65 in the next few decades.

Only thing that I've seen and comes close was Powell vs Lewis in Tokio 91.
