The world's 50 most dominant athletes range in age from 17 to 40

When we released our annual list of the “The 50 most dominant athletes alive,” Tom Brady not only near the top, he was also the oldest athlete on the list, and nobody else was even close.

Brady is now 40 years, the only player over 36 on the list. He is also 23 years older than the two youngest athletes on the list, 17-year-old American snowboarder Chloe Kim, and 17-year-old Russian figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva.

The most common age among the most dominant athletes was 26, with six athletes at that age. In addition, more than half (30) of the athletes fall within a 7-year age range, from 26 through 32.
