    I can’t believe that nobody has mentioned a man by the name of Primetime. You know that famous two sport athlete (NFL Hall of Famer and MLB All Star) Deion Sanders.

  • Steve Panther

    You are all wrong. Gene Conley, of Richland Washington, is the only person to win WORLD championships in two of the four major American sports; one with the Milwaukee Braves in the 1957 World Series and three Boston Celtics world championships from 1959-61. No one else can claim 2 WORLD titles in 2 different sports!

    Clara Hughes….only woman to win an olympic medal in summer AND winter games! How is she not on the list? Speed skater and Cyclist, c’mon MAN.

    • Neil

      Btw it was 2 bronze medals in the 1996 winter games for Clara, and then one gold, one silver, and two more bronze in speed skating over a period of 3 winter Olympics after the Atlanta games.

      Also, since I’m Canadian and don’t mind being un-biased, American Eddie Eagan, look him up if you don’t know but that’s 2 Olympics golds, one summer, one winter.

    How about Bob Hayes. Running Back for The Dallas Cowboys and Gold Medalist in the 1960 Rome Olympics.

  • RaeAnn

    this does not help me on my school homework at all! >:(

  • Herb Crehan

    Gene Conley is the only athlete with championship rings for the World Series (Milwaukee Braves) and NBA–3 with Celtics.

    And Deborah White’s dad Sam played with Jackie Jensen who played in the Rose Bowl, East-West Shrine Game, World Series and MLB All-Star game.

    Mike Greenwell. a Star player for The Boston Red Sox, retired, and then became a NASCAR race driver.

  • Peter Boucher

    Willie Davenport. Olympic Gold Medalist in the 110 Meter High Hurdles at the 1968 Mexico City Games. And part of the 4-man Bobsled team in the 1980 Winter Olympics at the Lake Placid, N.Y. Games

  • Twill

    How is Danny Ainge not here? He’s the only person to ever be an all American in 3 sports??!

    • Good point. He could have easily have been on this list.

  • ISMAEL NUNEZ

    HI I agree with the others
    This list need to be updated
    Where’s Dave Winfield, Bob Hayes, Babe Didrickson Zaharias
    They should be added!!!

    • Peter Boucher

      @ 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.

  • Ed Griffin

    Ollie Matson has the credentials:

    All-American in football at University of San Francisco
    All-Pro in NFL with a 14-year career
    College Hall of Fame
    NFL Hall of Fame

    Olympic medalist in track and field
    Two Olympic medals at Helsinki, 1952: Bronze in 400 m dash; silver in 4×400 relay.

  • Louis Matthew

    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???
