I'll exclude football just because it would distort the list and be full of Juve players:

1) Michael Jordan
2) Mario Lemieux
3) John Stockton
4) Mike Tyson
5) Usain Bolt
6) Roger Federer
7) Sidney Crosby
8) Valentino Rossi
9) Michael Johnson
10) Allen Iverson

Probably missing someone. These are the ones I actually saw in my lifetime.

Excluding footie the list is very Latvian for me, nowadays I'm most proud about Porzingis, Bertans (basketball), Briedis (boxing) and Ostapenko (tennis). But there are a few strange foreigners on that list along the years like Olivier Panis and Karl Malone

This is pretty hard one. Just to name a few: Aleksei Nemov, Jean Alesi, Valentino Rossi, Mario Lemieux, Donovan McNabb, Ron Hextall, Martin Brodeur, James Hunt...the list is endless really. And there can't be a list without mentioning Ale which is my biggest hero of all time.

now that you mention him, i realize i forgot Janne Ahonen on my list. remember when Sven Hannewald got 4 wins at the New Years tournament and i was hoping Ahonen would repeat it, but he came up short several times, even if he won the whole thing 4-5 times during those years. one year he won the 1st 3, just to barely get beaten on the last one in Bischofshofen. and i dont even follow ski jumping, never watch it not even on the Olympics, just was always tuning in for those 4 events around New Year, especially when Ahonen, Kasai, Malysz, Janda, Schmitt were all around. nowadays i dont even watch that
