I'm guessing that 99% of the people won't have any idea what or who I'm talking aobut, but Rob Smets is a rodeo bullfighter and is without a doubt the best that possibly has ever lived. He is a 5 time World Champion Bullfighter, which is the most championships than any other. Some people comment about Lance Armstrong coming back from battleing cancer which is a great feat, but just as impressive is Rob Smets coming back after having his neck brocken not once, but twice from getting run over by bulls. Plus he's had so many other sports related injurys, like many various broken bones, cracked and broken ribs, teeth knocked out, dislocated, shoulders, torn legiments, and just about any other injury that you can imagine, and yet he is still at the top of his game after coming back from all that.

Most people who have never really seen rodeo bullriding and bullfighting up close might have a hard time understanding just how rough, dangerous, sometimes deadly, and physically demanding the sport is. I guarantee getting run over by a bull weighing anywhere from 1500-2000+ pounds, can easily leave you in a world of hurt. And for Rob Smets to still be at the top of his game after 25 or so years, is why he gets my vote as one of the best athletes out there. This guy is 44 years old and can still take a hit that would leave most grown men lying in a ball on the ground crying for their mommies, and he get's up shakes it off, and keeps doing his job one bull after another. This guy is truely amazing.
