Was, sadly. He died in 2015, aged 40, from a heart attack.

Wow - I'd never heard. That is sad. What an athlete.

Lomu was not born in Samoa; he was born in Auckland.

As an American, i was pretty proud to know Drogba. And VERY surprised that 59% got him right. Must be more Europeans taking these quizzes than i originally thought.

I think he's become more well known in the states since joining Canada's MLS and playing friendlies with our teams.
Level 85

Either that or there are a lot more West Africans taking the quizzes than you originally thought.

Abidi Pele maybe
Level 79

Really... The Jr. instead of his father???? The Jr. instead of a Legend??? Putting the Jr. in a quiz that features true legends like Pelé, Federer, Nurmi, Lomu et al. is almost a crime against boxing and the country he comes from altogether (when you could've erased that "Jr." and the answer/country would still be the same, but with a true legend instead).

Am I the only one here that knows nothing about athletes and simply guessed based on the how the name is written and what it sounds like? By doing so, I got more than the average answers correct, by the way.
Level 65
Jun 4, 2017
Yep, I knew 4 athletes from their sports, and the rest was guessing the country from the name. Quite fun! Only got 10 though.
Level 79

Sonja Henie was least guessed? Wow, I feel really old.
Level 57
Jun 9, 2017
It turns out, I don't know where too many athletes are from, if they don't play hockey.
Level 31

I put in Czech and it didn't take it. Come on....???
Level 74

Let alone Czechoslovakia where he was actually born.
Level 70

Never heard of Sammy Sosa, Dominik Kasek or Manu Ginobili and I follow World Sport.
Level 83

Must not follow world sport too closely then? Both Hasek and Ginobili played sports that are popular around the world, and each were starring players on Gold medal winning Olympic teams. (Sosa I understand, he probably wasn't well known outside North America.)
