Re: Great 20th Century Multi-Sport Athletes

I think everybody lines up behind Jim Thorpe with one possible exception: Babe Didrikson Zaharias. That is fair, although the absolute domination of both athletes likely had to do with the fact that there was little detailed training at the time, so being an incredibly good general "athlete&qu...
