    Football- Oliver Kahn !! As a kid I thought he was one scary looking dude! I don't know if I'd want to take a PK against him

    Jurgen Klinsmann(I think we are lucky to have him as the coach for our national team here in the U.S)

    Bastian Schweinsteiger

    Philip Lahm

    I'd probably end up naming a lot of the the Munich players I like, so I'll stop here.

    I know there were many great footballers from the 70's and 80's, too. I wasn't born at that time, so my knowledge is limited there.


    Bodybuilding:

    Markus Ruhl!! The guy is a beast. From the documentaries I've seen, he seems to have a very likeable personality.

    Robert Harting, discus thrower. Quite a looker, if you ask me.

    Usually running events are dominated by black athletes, but here is an example of Netherlandic athlete who proves our peoples can also be best runners.

    Dafne Schippers is the 2015 and 2017 World Champion and won silver at the 2016 Summer Olympics in the 200 metres. Schippers holds the European record in the 200 m with a time of 21.63 s and is the third-fastest woman of all time at this distance.









    Another Germanic runner is Wenda Nel from South Africa, specialising in the 400 metres hurdles. She competed at the 2011 World Championships reaching the semifinals.



    Kate McIlroy is a New Zealand triathlete and former runner. She won the World Mountain Running title in 2005 and was named New Zealand Sportswoman of the Year at the 2006 Halberg awards.



    Kimberley Smith is a New Zealand middle distance and long distance runner who specialises in the 5000 and 10,000 metres.



    Emelie Forsberg from Sweden, the bright young star of international trail running.

    Gymnastics are usually dominated by Russian, Romanian and Chinese athletes, but here an example of a performing Germanic gymnast. Giulia Steingruber is a Swiss 2016 Olympic bronze medalist on vault and a European champion in all-around (2015), vault (2013, 2014, 2016) and floor (2016).

    Another example of a strong woman is Australian professional boxer and water skiing champion Lauryn Eagle.
