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.

Worldwide I would say in numbers Pele is the most popular athlete in the world. (Everywhere in Europe, everywhere in Africa, everywhere in the Americas, Most of Asia including China, Oceania and everyone in the Antarctic would know Pele)

Wasn't Klitschko born in USSR? Modern country would be Kazakhstan

USSR and Kazakhstan will work now, but since his nationality is Ukrainian that will continue to be the displayed answer.

Kazakhstan isn't correct by any stretch of the imagination. He was born in Belovodskoye which was in the USSR but is now part of Kyrgyzstan. That said, he is still Ukranian.

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.

Yep, I knew 4 athletes from their sports, and the rest was guessing the country from the name. Quite fun! Only got 10 though.

It turns out, I don't know where too many athletes are from, if they don't play hockey.
