I understand Gretzky is not your normal athlete. He wont be able to leap tall buildings (I think), bench press over 200lbs, skate or run faster than a speeding bullet. But he is highly underrated when it comes to athletics.

Gretzky played multiple sports up in Canada growing up before he fully took over at hockey. According to some sources, Gretzky was very successful at lacrosse and baseball and each of them he said was great training for hockey.

I mean I would choose Wilt easily at the sports he excelled at such as Basketball, Field and Track but Gretzky has his hockey, lacrosse, baseball. So its interesting debate but when we talk about athletics we usually think of Bo Jackson. WHo is the fastest, strongest and has the hand/foot eye coord.
