Greatest of all time - Round 1

Admins, as before please can this be put on the relevant other sports sections:

So, in a previous article I asked the question of who the greatest sportsperson of all time is. As it happens, I can change it to asking for the greatest sportsmen as no women received any serious backing.

From all of the thoughts, I have collated them all and came up with a list of 20 who get on the shortlist. I have added one or two of my own as well. The process is simple, the four winners and one wildcard will make the final, where the greatest of all time is decided.

While not necessary, a comment on why you have voted how you have would be appreciated. But simply vote the relevant number of stars for your favourite shortlisted nominee:

Vote 5 s for Michael JORDAN (Basketball)

Vote 4 s for Phil TAYLOR (Darts)

Vote 3 s for Ayrton SENNA (Formula One)

Vote 2 s for Ronnie O'SULLIVAN (Snooker)

Vote 1 for Sugar Ray ROBINSON (Boxing)

Ronnie when he actually plays. Not taking part in the UK Championship next month either.

Ronnie is the most naturally talented sportsmen, probably that there has ever been, but he's not the GOAT

Don't see the point of this to be honest. Ali supersedes every other athlete in all aspects. Ronnie Osulivan shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath.

MJ singledhandedly probably raised up a sport to the public eye more than any of them. He was a phenomenon.
