A list of the best Hispanic athletes. This is a list of the best of the best, the creme de la creme. The people listed here are the best Hispanic athletes in the world, bar none. Their accomplishments range from winning olympic medals to championships in their respective individual or team sports to even the highest individual honors, like MVP awards. Many of the Hispanic athletes featured on this list are in their sport's respective Hall of Fame, which is an honor that should be taken lightly by anyone. Some of the greatest athletes in the history of sport are Hispanic. The list includes literally any sport you can think of, from soccer, football, baseball, basketball, hockey, golf, swimming, boxing, racing, tennis. If you can name a Hispanic athlete who is outstanding at any of these sports, he or she is likely to to be on this list. But you know what the beauty is? If you notice a Hispanic athlete isn't on here and should be considered one of the best, you can him or her to here. Does it get any better than that?

The debate over who is the best Hispanic athlete will rage for years to come. When you have a list that's populated by Lionel Messi, Mariano Rivera, Tony Gonzalez, Oscar De La Hoya and Manu Ginobili, there will surely be arguments over each athlete's standing in the pantheon of outstanding Hispanic athletes. The same can be argued for Gabriela Sabatini, Pedro Martinez and Roberto Duran, all titans in their respective sports. That is the one common bond between these special Hispanic athletes: they are at the top of the game in their respective sports.

This is the list of the best Hispanic athletes. Feel free to vote or rerank it as you deem fit, reflecting who you think deserves to be among the greatest Hispanic athletes in sports history.
