Those two aren't even remotely comparable.

They are each the greatest of all time in their sport, though Phelps is more dominant comparatively. And to people who follow swimming between Olympic years, Phelps' impact is even greater.

Well done, Jessica Ennis! Delivered under pressure and got the British athletics team of to a good start. With Rutherford leading and Farah coming up, this might be a special night for team GB.

Yeah. But he's been gradually moving away so that many others have already started taking over his place. He's missed so many events and what not.

Iceland 30-29 over France great result. Too bad it couldn't be done 4 years ago but love it.

I agree. Federer has had real rivals that could regularly beat him.

Phelps has crushed everyone in the highly international sport for the past decade.

Will Claye is the most obnoxious athlete ever and that's saying something.
His constant praying and bible thumping after events really is annoying.

Mokoena had a bit of a shocker. Had one of the better SBs from most of these athletes.
