List Rules Only vote for the FAVORITE athletes. What favorite means is up to you, it could be someone from any sport, as long as you like them, they deserve to be voted up.

S Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.
Vote for your FAVORITE athlete. The one YOU think is the most popular, most skilled, the coolest. The one you would like to meet. Vote for the person you think is the best not only at their sport, but across the board.

If there's one thing that unites Millennials, it's sports. Things have changed since the dawn of the 2000s; many of the star athletes that Millenials' parents or even older brothers looked up to are retired and are a thing of the past. In rare cases, like Michael Jordan, a star athlete sticks around and becomes even more famous - it's gotta be the shoes, right?

Today, there are many athletes that Millennials look up to, some of the biggest names in all of sports. That's what this list seeks to uncover: who do Millennials consider to be their FAVORITE athlete?
