Slowest People in Sports


Slowest People in Sports

During the Beijing Olympics, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt proved that he is, without a doubt, the fastest man in the world. It was fun watching him run, but I think I'd prefer to watch a race to determine the slowest man in sports, where whoever finishes last would actually finish first. Here are my top five contenders for the title of slowest person in sports...

1. Peyton Manning: He's currently recovering from knee surgery. Which only enhances his chances at this award.

2. The Great Khali: This WWE wrestler stands 7-3 and weighs 420 pounds. There's no way he can get down the track with any urgency.

3. Frank Thomas: He was never exactly fleet of foot, but the last few years have seen Thomas take a precipitous dip toward complete stagnation.

4. Jerome James: The Knicks center has never been known for his velocity, which should make for some interesting moments this season in Mike D'Antoni's fastbreak offense.

5. John Daly: Because it must be hard to sprint with a Diet Coke in one hand and a cigarette in the other.
