List: Top Ten German Sportspersons of the 20th Century

Date: November 2004

Source: German television viewers

Base: Over 100,000 votes were received.

Notes: Seven-time Formula One world champion (as of 2005 - he's still racing when this is being written) Michael Schumacher was voted the country's top sportsman of the 20th century. Surprisingly, 'Der Kaiser' (Franz Beckenbauer) only polled fourth, but that may be because a lot of Germans outside of Bavaria don't like the football club of which he is president, FC Hollywood, aka Bayern Munich.
