:: David Beckham (World Soccer) - 4 votes
Without doubt, England captain David Beckham. He is the most searched for sports personality on the Internet and the most recognized non-politician in the world. Ask anyone in any soccer-playing country in the world - ie 99.9% of countries - for their heroes, and Beckham comes close to the top (especially with women...)
Michael Jordan (Basketball, USA) - 3 votes; spokesman for Nike and McDonald's, worldwide brands.
:: Tiger Woods (Golf, USA) - 2 votes
:: George Foreman (Boxing, USA) - owns grilling machine brand.
:: Muhammed Ali (Boxing, USA)
:: Ronaldo (World Soccer)
:: Michael Schumacher (Formula One)
:: Roger Federder (Tennis)
:: Wayne Gretzky (Hockey) - "the great one"
:: Usain Bolt (Track and Field)
I think it has to be Muhammad Ali. Beckham's fame and popularity is fading. I doubt if many people in the States would pick Schumacher out of a lineup.
I've always heard it was Hockey a.k.a NHL.
