Lance Armstrong. - Incredible and such an inspiration.

Paula Radcliffe. - Continously dominated the sport.

Michael Phelps. - Same as above.

Usain Bolt. - Constantly breaks records, with ease.

I was really hoping that Woods would not win that golf tournament, he comes across to me as an arrogant, unpleasant individual. His behaviour towards his wife was disgraceful and she was quite correct in booting him out. How anyone can say that this win was the greatest sporting comeback ever, astonishes me. An example, in 1976, during the German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring, Niki Lauda was involved in a huge accident that resulted in terrible burns. He was back racing 7 weeks later and even won the World Championship the following season. That is a comeback. It required incredible guts and determination to do that, somewhat eclipsing a bloke playing a round of golf.

Wasn't on Sky Sports though so they don't recognise it, they invented sport you know and football didn't exist until they came along.

Ben Ainslie,Roger Federer and Pele for me.
Totally agree with you Westie.
I would argue that Woods is a completely charisma free zone.
He was on his way to be a so called great before he let go with his wife,drugs and driving problems.
I find his play robotic and emotion free with no real connection with the fans.
Put him into a team game like the Ryder cup and he's a nobody.
