The Most Dominant Athlete of All Time?

The names that most folks come up with are Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali (his first go-round prior to incarceration), Babe Ruth, Wayne Gretzky, Tiger Woods, Jim Brown, and several others but I would argue that a solid case could be made that Edwin Moses deserves that moniker. The fellow won two Olympic gold medals in the 400 meter hurdles (it probably would have been three but we boycotted in 1980) and from 1977 to 1987 he won 122 straight races. Granted, his specialty is a little more obscure than the sports of those other fellows but, I don't care, 122 to 0 is off the charts no matter what your endeavor may be.
