      2. Alexander Belov

      3. Alexander Karelin - Александр Александрович Карелин



      As a wrestler in high school, I followed Karelin's exploits very closely. The guy was simply amazing. Some opined that he was juiced, but I believed him when he said he trained like none of his competitors. His intensity on the mat was certainly unmatched. Personally I think that he won most of his matches even before he hit the mat: his opponents were terrified going in. Perhaps that's why Rulan Gardner beat him: Gardner always claimed that instead of fearing Karelin, he admired him, and always looked forward to their meetings with almost child-like joy. Nonetheless, it's hard to see Karelin's greatness being surpassed anytime soon.

              All human ills he can subdue,
              Or with a bauble or medal
              Can win mans heart for you;
              And many a blessing know to stew
              To make a megloamaniac bright;
              Give honour to the dainty Corse,
              The Pixie is a little shite.

                    I object to the inclusion of Pavel Bure on this list. He turned out to be one of those classic spineless atheletes who can't cut the mustard under the hot glare of the New York lights: after his joining the Rangers, Bure's production fell right off the table. Instead of scoring goals Bure spent his time scoring strippers and booze instead. It was not unusual to see him start a game with a hangover. The guy was a slob, pure and simple.

                        11. Boris Petrovich Mikhailov - his similarity to famed comedic actor Stan Laurel cost the Soviets the 1980 ice hockey gold medal.

                              This guy, himself the scion of one of Russia's most famous noble families (and relative of my godmother) claims that Alexander died a religious hermit out beyond the Urals many, many years later.
