Not that Vick isnt a great athlete it is just a bit of a surprise that a Football player is the best.

I would have assumed, a soccer or hockey or even basketball would top the list. Those three are much more physically demanding sports than football.

Im with Rosey here, no way on earth is a football player the top athlete in the world. Im also inclined to think it would be a soccer player, if it was a fan based spectator sport, but the title has to go to marathon runners ? surely!

duuuude...badmitton is freakin INTENSE! You gotta like...be ready to move side to side, and then there's that really small racket thingy. Sometimes you fall down but usually you have to watch out for that plastic thing and hit it back. But the thing is you gotta do it REALLY quick! I mean...WHOA!
