Greatest Michaels of All Time

When I was in college, I was mistaken as Michael. I do not know why but people in Del Carmen where I rented a room called me Michael. Then, I thought maybe it is a sign that someday I’d become one of those people with great achievements like the Michael’s.

I have listed 6 of the greatest Michaels in the history.

6. Michael Phelps. He is known as one of the greatest Olympian swimmers of all time. He has won 14 career Olympic gold medals and has broken 37 world records in swimming. That’s why he’s great.

5. Michael Buble. He is a famous multiple award-winning Canadian Jazz singer. In 2007, his album “Call Me Irresponsible” reached number one on several international charts and has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide. He is my favourite.

4. Michael Angelo. Simply known as Michaelangelo whose real name is Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, he was the rival of another famous Italian Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci. Some of his famous masterpieces are seen from the Sistine Chapel ceiling. No question he is considered as one of the greatest people in the history.

3. Michael Faraday. A Chemist and Physicist at the same time, he contributed lots of stuff to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. To name a few, he was the one who discovered electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism, laws of electrolysis, etc. These concepts are still being used in modern companies.

2. Michael Jordan. Well, there may be new generations of great basketball players but surely Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. He was also one of the most sought out endorser of so many commercial products worldwide. Some of his accomplishments in the court include 5 MVP awards, 10 All-NBA First Team designations, 9 All-Defensive First Team honours, 3 All-Star Game MVP awards, and much more.

1. Michael Jackson. He is the most successful American musician, dancer, and entertainer and referred to as the King of Pop. Though he had not much of a happy ending, undeniably he is one of the most influential entertainers of all time. Everything that he did in his life has been getting so much attention of the whole world. With the sold out albums, chart-topping songs, record-breaking concerts and even to his controversies even after his death, no doubt he is the greatest Michael of all time.
