JanetTV.com’s 150 Greatest Female Athletes of All Time – 2016

 

JanetTV.com’s  150 Greatest Female Athletes of All Time Ranking for 2016.

The definition of “greatest of all time” leads to constant debate. That’s why JanetTV.com chose it for the name of this ranking. JanetTV.com’s Hall of 150 represents a perfectly imperfect way to rank outstanding female athletes from different eras, different sports and different countries – – as of 2016. See the list of athletes below and click the number for more on their accomplishments. Some wanted us to just rank the highest paid female athletes. Some wanted us to give more weight to female runners, volleyball players or a list of other sports. Indeed, some suggestions focused on “beautiful” female athletes and some were biased towards recently famous women athletes. We thought that those suggestions, along with many others, were limited. We’ve discovered that JanetTV.com’s “150 Greatest Female Athletes of All Time” ranking is a big enough tent to meet most every classification, female sport, type of athletic woman and competition.

 See methodology at bottom of this page.
There were arguments, counterarguments and some hurt feelings. The vigorous debate was testament to the incredible talents of history’s greatest female athletes.

What was the methodology we used for determining those who would be named to our list of the 150 Greatest Female Athletes of All Time? Simple – 50% of our scoring came from suggestions from sports fans all over the world. The other 50% of our scoring came from the ranking by a special committee of sports fans, writers, editors & experts who were tasked with doing the research and defending their individual rankings to the rest of the committee. Our special committee was asked to consider eras, competition, dominance, measurable accomplishments, physical capacity, world, national & Olympic championships, longevity, impact on their sport, and consistency. No sport was off limits.
