Name some footballers who could compete in other sports at the Olympics.

This is what I've got so far:

Djibril Cisse - 100m Sprint
Obafemi Martins - Gymnastics
Ruud van Nistelrooy - Equestrian


Know any footballers who have hidden talents in other sports? I'm sure I remember hearing about a player who has a black belt in Judo - can't remember who it was though.

Curtis Woodhouse.

Hasnt actually left football because he is the captain of Rushden and Diamonds. Leaving football again though at end of this season to fully concentrate.

I do believe he is unbeaten in the ring though.

Of course, I'm not being entirely serious with these suggestions. Dennis Rommedahl and David Odonkor could do the 100 or 200 meter sprints.

Poulsen should do boxing or judo since he fancies himself such a tough guy:rollani:

Joe Cole could do some middle distance running, maybe the 3000 meters.

Pippo Inzaghi could probably challenge in the 3 meter springboard diving.

Edmundo and Eric Cantona could do tae-kwon-do:D

Obafemi Martis could participate in the 100m sprint and still be a part of Nigerias gymnastics team.

Nikola Žigić could've helped Serbias volleyball and basketball team, even though the basketball team didn't qualify for the Olympics.

Julian de Guzmán could be running marathons, he does it every game for Deportivo anyways.

Agbonlahor could run the 100 metres pretty quickly I would think.

Jimmy Downey here in Australia had a oppurtunity to go into Athletics but chose football.

Micheal Essien, James Harper, Genaro Gattuso, Dirk Kuyt all run so much during games.

Oguchi Onyewu or Cherno Samba could be weight lifters.

I would like to see Materazzi, Gattuso, Alan Smith, Kevin Muscat and Danny Tiatto all in a box ring.

Do you think Seville keeper..cant remember his name..could do Discuss as I remember him having a huge throw.
