    Only problem with this list is OTTO GRAHAM IS MISSING! He won a championship in two different sports in THE SAME YEAR! 1946 (NBL- with Chuck Connors) Rochester Royals and (AAFC) Cleveland Browns. He went to the AAFC and NFL championship every year he played– 10 CONSECUTIVE YEARS– and won 7. That’s 8 Championships. Who on this list has come close to that???

      @ ISMAEL NUNEZ You have made an excellent point by mentioning Mildred “Babe” Didrickson Zaharias and good for you. That is a tremendous oversight. A 2 time Olympic Gold Medalist at the 1932 Los Angeles Olympic Games. Excelled as a Basketball Player, One of the founders of the LPGA (and won a few tournaments herself). She was even being sought after by Major League Baseball scouts as she was capable of throwing a Baseball over 300+ feet. And of course Bob Hayes, 1964 Gold Medalist at the Tokyo Olympics and world record holder in the 100 meter dash. And an outstanding running back for the Dallas Cowboys.
