Always hard to compare athletes from different eras


I think, in general, athletes are better now because of drugs, weights, nutrition, training ,etc. However, hard to argue, compared to his peers, Jim Thorpe was the man.

Babe was also excellent, but competed at a time where women did not get the opportunities that they are afforded now.
