Does anyone freaking care about diving? Or who is the freaking GOAT there? How about gymnastics?
But if the GOAT of such sport is SO freaking good that he / she is one of the most recognizable faces around the globe - purely on his / her unprecedented performance - wouldn't that amount to scaling a FAR higher degree of difficulty to achieve the GOAT status than compared to say Jordan, Federer or Ali?
To push it to extreme, nobody cares to even know who the GOAT of darts is but if that GOAT hits the Bull's Eye what 99% (95%?) of the time and thus becomes an international celebrity, shouldn't he occupy special status among other GOATs?
