Bonafides From 2002-2012: 4x Olympic Gold Medalist, 4x World Record Holder
Showmanship is what turns sports into entertainment. And no we're not talking about that WWE shit, though we love us some awesomely choreographed hijinks. We mean stuntin' when your chances at a gold medal and becoming the world's fastest man are on the line. Usain Bolt's display during the 2008 Olympics would be enough to get him on this list but then he had break his 100 meter record of 9.69 seconds by running 9.58 seconds at the 2009 Berlin World Championships. One of the most unbreakable records in sports history? It ain't even a question! *Ja Rule voice*
