Five? Four people were picked as the the best of the twentieth century in their sport. And this was a mistake as the picks were put up to a popular vote and the two who deserved the honor had not played in the memory of most fans so the "pros' added the two that they thought deserved the honor.
Pele, Michelle Akers, Sun Wen, and Diego Maradona.
Pele and Michelle Akers belong right up at the top of any list of the best athletes of all time.
Akers had Chronic fatigue syndrome while playing in the world cup and here teammates did all her chores for her so she wold have the energy to play. They won the cup that year as the best team in the world.
Pele started playing on a pro team at 15, his national team at 16 and the world cup at 17.
Soccer if you haven't guessed.
