Profiles of Sporting Heroes

In an article analyzing UK heroes, Parry (2009) (see references) concluded that to become a hero athletes should combine skill with devotion to family, charity work and a place in popular culture. Therefore these profiles of potential sporting heroes address how the hero performs in each of these categories.

This is just a quick list of what some may consider sporting heroes. There are profiles of some of these, others will come in time. I have designed my own ranking system to give each hero a rating out of 100. Are the top ranked Heroes called Super Heroes? See what others have rated as the heroes.

Why don't you suggest your hero, and tell me why.
