The 50 Fittest Male Athletes (Sports Illustrated, 2014)

Who is the fittest male athlete in sports? The magazine Sport Illustrated has put together its first ever list of who they consider the current fittest male athletes in sports (in 2014). The Sport Illustrated's editors and writers used a 40-point rating system based on four unique criteria, speed, strength, agility and endurance. Each category was based on a scale of 0-10, so a perfect score is 40. The athlete to top this list, LeBron James, scored a perfect 10 in all four criteria.
