She definitely one of the Best!!!
GOAT ….. Full Stop!
NO! Fanny should NOT be ahead of Shelly, Joke!!!!
She’s at the pinacle
She is the fastest woman over 100metres but not the 200meres so she is the greatest runner of all times
She did it with hard work no short cut.
Definitely resounding YES
Continue your hard work Shelly one day you will be right up there with the Greats
Should be first or second. Dibaba is amazing too
Goat of Female Sprinting Mommy Rocket 🚀. Look at her Olympics and World Championships resume . Nuff said.
She is absolutely great, no doubt!
Can’t answer that question because the article does not provide comparable information on the contenders.
She could have been the greatest if they remove FloJo drugged 10.49 record.
U r really not serious. Did u see anywhere that she was indicted? Stop been myopic. She was clean as far as the athletics world is concerned. soon u will say usain bolt records too are drug related.
She is the greatest because of what she has achieved. It is extremely hard to do what she does.
She also have the most sub 10.8 100m
She deserves a seat at that table
Hopefully that position will improve soon.
What was the criteria? I didn’t vote so I have to accept their results. She’s # 1 on my list, GOAT
