The Top 10 Sporting GOATs Have Been Named And Ranked, Includes Jonah Lomu

Who are the 10 greatest sportsmen in history? Some people who attempt to create such an ambitious list might focus on net worth or media popularity, while others prefer to base their rankings on statistics and record-breaking achievements.

Basketball superstar MICHAEL JORDAN has been named the greatest sportsperson of all-time by fans around the globe with rugby star Jonah Lomu also included on the list.

Jonah Lomu (1975-2015) was a legendary New Zealand rugby union player who is widely regarded as one of the greatest rugby players of all time. Born on May 12, 1975, in Auckland, New Zealand, Lomu made a significant impact on the sport with his immense size, speed, and power.

Standing at 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighing around 265 pounds, Lomu was a formidable force on the rugby field. He burst onto the international scene during the 1995 Rugby World Cup, where he showcased his extraordinary skills as a winger. Lomu’s incredible speed and ability to break through tackles earned him a reputation as an unstoppable force, and he became a household name around the world.

Throughout his career, Lomu scored 37 tries in just 63 appearances for the New Zealand national team, the All Blacks. His dominating performances helped propel the All Blacks to numerous victories and cemented his status as a rugby icon.

Tragically, Lomu’s career was cut short by a rare kidney disease. Despite his health challenges, he continued to inspire millions of fans with his courage and determination. Lomu’s legacy extends beyond his incredible on-field achievements, as he remains an enduring symbol of strength, resilience, and the power of the human spirit.
