The Best Athlete in the World

Who will come out on top?
Posted by Scott Stevenson and Ryan Kelly on
March 16, 2011


For as long as there have been sports, there has been the opportunity to debate. Who is the best in their respective sport; who is the best of their era or, ultimately, who is the greatest of all time?

There are a lot of variables that go into this debate: what kind of physical, mental and emotional tools do they possess? But how does the debate change if a macro approach is taken and we ask the question: What sport has the greatest athlete?

It’s simple enough on the surface, but to arrive at the answer – or at least the criteria that will formulate the answer – is pretty complicated. How do you take different sports with different rules and different skill sets, toss them into one pot and arbitrarily single one sport out as better than the rest?
We here at Chill have a theory on how to do just that. We have assembled a panel of experts and worked with them to develop criteria that will help us grade each sport. And over the next few months we’ll be releasing groups – online and in the pages of this very publication – of different sport clusters from around the globe with the goal of deciding, with the help of our loyal readers and ultimately the expertise of our panel, the winner of each cluster. From there, winners will advance through the bracket until eventually we have named the World’s Greatest Athlete.

It won’t be a specific person, but rather will relate to the trials and tribulations of what athletes in different sports must go through and will be a testament to their talent, skills and determination.
