There is an athlete out there who is a PERFECT comparison to Bonds.
And this person IS in their respective HOF.
(Not baseball) For most, I would say the “name” is as big if not bigger than Bonds in both sports and, I guess, pop culture.
Like Bonds, this athlete set records which will more then likely never be broken.
Like Bonds, this athlete was better than their competitors (the best on the planet) by a VERY significant margin. Like Bonds, this athlete was widely speculated to be using PED’s on absurd levels yet never failed a drug test and always maintained their innocence.
Unlike Bonds, this athlete is considered a groundbreaking athlete.
This athlete is revered and loved.
And, as I said, in their respective HOF.
Haven’t read any articles on the comparisons which are interesting and so similar.
This athlete did this in our lifetime and on the biggest stage in the world.
Who is it? (Note: not an obscure sport. One of the biggest sports on planet earth. “Real” sport, not pro wrestling.
This sport is represented in the Olympic Games and has been for a very, very long time).
American former track and field athlete who won nine Olympic gold medals, one Olympic silver medal, and 10 World Championships medals, including eight gold.
