    No one else can do he can do athletically.

    If the NFL or NBA or professional baseball sent an all star team of athletes one athlete per event, he would easily beat their score in a decathlon.

    The guy is a complete freak of nature. He doesn't get the recognition he deserves.

    100-meter dash: 10.23 seconds, 1st (decathlon world-championship record)

    Bd to his credit is much more volatile than rip

    Although rip is dedicated that's for sure

    Some guy who does everything on a mediocre level is considered the best?

    Usain Bolt 100-meter dash: 9.58 seconds

    Lol @ comparing the two numbers on any level. 10.23 is laughable/pathetic.

    Nope thinking about rebuilding humanity. I would rather a guy whose above average at everything, than a guy who excels at one thing and is shit at everything else. Selective breeding with other above average people should produce a population of people that excel at everything....This is SPARTA !!!! :D

    The 100 time was the best time ever for a decathlete competing in the word championships.

    Considering he can high jump 6'7 during a decathlon, I am pretty sure he would be able to dunk a basketball.

    part of Rips charm is that he stays so level-headed when attacked mercilessly. He refuses to break kayfabe.

    But it's gutter trash compared to Usain, so that doesn't mean anything. Nobody gives a shit about the decathlon and there is 0 competition, that's why a pathetic time like 10.23 is at the top.

    Real sports have an offense and a defense.

    I'd love to see this guy toss a shotput with Lebron D ing him up or get off the line in the 100 as JJ Watt body slams him.

    Aside from maybe the 100 and 110 hurdles and shotput, and the discus maybe there might be someone who could compete with him in the NFL. Other than those 4 events, he would destroy the NFL all star team.

    Nice to see you call them "events" and not sport.

    It would be interesting to see Bolt try to do a decathlon. He probably would get injured and not be able to complete one. He would score VERY high in the 100 and 400. He would probably suck at the discus, shotput, javelin and pole vault and be miserable at the 1500.

    Also consider that the guy is so athletically un-gifted, that he has to run, jump, and throw things in separate events (at a mediocre level), while NBA and NFL players flow seamlessly through all of these during the same game (at the highest level).

    It really is like comparing checkers to chess.

    "Hey Usain, how would you like to compete in these events that nobody watches for a lot less money?"
