Default Re: Favorite athlete by sport of all time

In tennis it's Rios, in footie it's Chilavert, in volleyball it's Vlad Grbic (as for country, PL of course), in cycling it used to be Escartin, in athletics - Haile Gebreselassie, swimming - Otylia Jędrzejczak , biathlon - Frode Andresen, ski-jumping: Małysz and Tommy Ingebrigtsen, alpine skiing - Herman Maier, cross country - Bjoern Daehlie, I'm not a big Formula 1 fan but since we have a Pole there, so I have to write Kubica

I don't care about other sports.
