Since the word athletics truly refers to Track and Field, then that is the sport. The Olympic decathlon winner is referred to as the world's best athlete.

In a more typical sense, it all depends on exactly how you define "most athletic". I've heard that soccer players can run 11 or 12 miles in a match (90 minute) but this pales in comparison to marathon and half-marathon runners, who also get no breaks.

Some sports are also faster paced than others. For instance, a round of Golf can take the professionals near 6 hours to make roughly 72 shots. This is only one shot per 5 minutes. Basketball and volleyball are much faster paced.

How do you get an athletic person to like you?

(this works for girls)Option 1A good way to get an athletic person to like you is to be athletic. Join the sport he is in and practice together sometimes.Option 2if you are not athletic, then just act how athletic you normally are, which is not at all. Join the sport and act all cutesy and "oh, I'm so bad at this. hee hee." Then maybe ask him if he can help you with the sport and it can get better from there!If you don't want to join a sport, then if he is good at something else, if you are good do option 1 and if you are bad do option 2.
