    You wanna play the numbers game I'm down.

    The Raptors stagger their rotations.
    Someone like Terrance Davis counts. Look at the on/off kyle Lowry to get a good idea.

    • 1975 – First to achieve IFAA Weapons/Forms score of a perfect “10”
    • 1978 – First Kumite fighter to exceed 300 matches
    • 1980 – First Kumite fighter to be undefeated with over 100 matches
    • 1980 – Final Kumite fight record – 329 matches

    How about Eddy Merckx? The dude was totally dominate, the speed records he set in Mexico City was incredible.

    Sergey Bubka. He was a pole vaulter for the Ruskies/Ukraine. Homeboy broke the world record for pole vaulting 35 times.

    Bubka won six consecutive IAAF World Championships, an Olympic gold medal and broke the world record for men's pole vault 35 times.[5] He was the first pole vaulter to clear 6.0 metres and 6.10 metres.[6][7]

    He held the indoor world record of 6.15 meters, set on 21 February 1993 in Donetsk, Ukraine[8] for almost 21 years until France's Renaud Lavillenie cleared 6.16 metres on 15 February 2014 at the same meet in the same arena.[9] He is the current outdoor world record holder at 6.14 meters, a record he has held since 31 July 1994,[10] though since adopting rule 260.18a in 2000 the IAAF regards Lavillenie's record as the official "world record."

    As legend has it Ben Johnson was so juiced up that the whites of his fucking eyes were yellow. Lewis was on gear too, no doubt, but everyone was. But Ben Johnson was juiced to the motherfucking gills, more than anyone there and maybe more than anyone ever. He was putting up times a full tenth of a second faster than anyone else out of nowhere.

    Bo Jackson was probably the best and most dominant athlete I've ever seen. The speed and power combo were unreal.

    But clearly it's Gretzky. If we don't count him it's kind of tough.

    I thought Lawrence Taylor was one of the most feared and dominant at the time. Larry Allen on O-line was a road grater. Bruce Allen, Reggie White. So many in the NFL.

    Most dominant pitcher in MLB in their primes probably Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez. Nearly unhittable. Both had year with ERA under 1.8!

    Since Gretzky has been named many times on here. I'm going to say someone who hasn't been mentioned Tiger Woods.

    Tiger was #1 ranked golfer at 281 consecutive weeks. That's about 5.4 years. And in total he's been #1 ranked golfer for 683 weeks. That's about 13 years. Now that' dominate.

    It's a fucking Olympic sport, so more than "9 people" do it. Are you trying to stay in character with this ignorant statement. If so, BRAVO!

    The most dominant athlete isn't someone doing some obscure shit like poling himself over a bar. When the talent pool is shallower than your gene pool it barely deserves recognition. And lol at the Olympic sport argument. Sliding down a hill with four people in a sled is an Olympic sport.

    OK. I guess you REALLY ARE an idiot. The guy broke the WORLD RECORD 35 times! The OP's question was who was/is the most dominant athlete across all sports. Regardless of what you think, it's a sport that's done around the world. He was thoroughly dominant in his sport. Dude's question wasn't "who is/was the most dominant per number of people who participate in said sport."
