In celebration of the Fourth of July, we count down the Top 5 US Athletic Heroes on the Fan Morning Show. Michael Phelps lands at number five. With 18 gold medals and 22 medals overall, Phelps broke Olympic records. He said growing up his dream was to be the best swimmer in the world, and he did just that.

Coming in at number two, it’s track athlete Carl Lewis. His larger than life personality made him fun to watch off the track, and on the track he lit it up, winning medals in multiple Olympics, including four gold medals in the 1984 Summer Games.

Jesse Owens comes in at number three. This track star, snubbed by Adolf Hitler at the 1936 Summer Olympics, still triumphed in Berlin.

Muhammad Ali frequently declared, “I am the greatest.” He comes in at number 2, but could contend for the top spot. Find out who we picked as our Top US Athletic Heroes.
