Greatest swimmer, si — Greatest athlete, … please

Great to see an American athlete, Michael Phelps, dominating his sport. But why isn’t the title of greatest swimmer ever enough? No way a swimmer belongs in the greatest athlete debate. Whoever that is needs to be able to hit above at least the Mendoza line at the MLB level and be dominant in another sport. Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders types come to mind, not swimmers, other than Joe Frazier of course.
