With the end of the 2010s upon us, we've ranked the most dominant athletes of the decade.
What was most astonishing in making this list is the sheer number of athletes who have become fixtures at the top of their sports and just how consistent the world's best competitors have been - some of these stars on their second decade of dominance.Whittling down this list to 41 athletes was no easy feat. We didn't use any formula. We followed a subjective method, judging domination on individual success and accolades, team success, and an intangible sense of influence and command over a sport.
Check out our list of the 41 most dominant athletes of the decade below:
Some honorable mentions (in no particular order): Max Scherzer, Kawhi Leonard, James Harden, Conor McGregor, Chloe Kim, Maya Moore, Alex Hannold, Gwen Jorgensen, Sebastian Vettel, Julio Jones, Manny Pacquiao, Allyson Felix, Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe.
