Greatest Olympian of All Time

#1
So, inspired by airborne_aircrew asking if he is a cnut via a comment about Phelps, who do the esteemed members of Arrse think is the greatest olympian? Phelps, Bolt, Lewis, Ali, Eddie the Eagle?

My vote goes to Redgrave on the grounds of consistency over time.

Agree about Daley Thompson for GB

Would say my personal favourite runner has to be Haile Gebreselassie (?) considering for most of his career he didn't have access to expensive facilities his running ability is amazing.
