Why is Lewis Hamilton one of the greatest athlete in the UK?

Lewis Hamilton won the 7th world championship after winning the Turkish race. He has become the most successful F1 driver in history and is arguably the greatest athlete in the UK of his generation.

Is Lewis Hamilton the Greatest Athlete in the UK?

Andy Murray was famous in the UK when he won 3 consecutive Grand Slams. However, at present, it can be said that he is just one of the four best sports athletes of his time, even the bottom of the list.

The Scottish tennis player had a golden period in tennis and brought glory to UK sport. But Lewis Hamilton completely outperformed and Murray was not a worthy opponent.

Another great England player that deserves a mention is Sir Mo Farah. His most outstanding achievement is winning two 2012 Olympic gold medals at a distance of 5000m and 10000m at London’s yard.

Hamilton is rated as the greatest athlete in the UK

Thanks to his achievements that stirred the UK as well as his philanthropic activities, Mo Farah was awarded the CBE title (only lower than the Knighthood) by the Queen of England in the new year 2013. This even made the British people disagree, who thought that Mo Farah deserved the title of Knight! Also because of the CBE title, British media and the world began to call him Sir Mo Farah.

Despite possessing extremely impressive achievements, Mo Farah is not the greatest marathon runner in the world. He hasn’t even set a world record yet. Finally, there is Chris Froome, a Kenyan-born British professional trailer who plays for UCI ProTeam. Born in Kenya and raised in South Africa but since Spring 2008, he has played for the UK.

Chris Froome had four Tour de France championships in 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2017. However, he was questioned about using doping and despite being vindicated, this greatly reduced his reputation.

After all, Hamilton is rated as the greatest athlete in the UK. The reason is the impressive collection of achievements and has just equaled Schumacher’s record of 7 times world championship F1 at the age of 36 years old.
