1. Gareth Bale
When we remember Gareth Bale, we always associate him with tremendous, tantalizing pace on the football pitch. It’s that god-gifted speed that actually saw him excel at multiple sports such as rugby, hockey and athletics.
Bale was also classmates with fellow Welsh rugby captain Sam Warburton in his school days. As a 14-year-old, he completed a 10/-meter racecourse in just 11 seconds. His pace also saw him become a good player at cross-country running.
If it hadn’t been for football, Bale would certainly have notched a couple of gold medals for Great Britain at the Olympics.
