#2 Captain America (Steve Rogers)

Sport: Discus Throw

Captain America – the gold medal machine?

Injected with the super-soldier serum, Steve Rogers was frozen in suspended animation for a few decades. The serum gave Captain America enhanced physical powers and a mean throwing arm. All it takes is one swing of that massive arm for his shield to soar hundreds of metres away.

What if one day an eagle-eyed American coach substituted his shield with a much smaller discus? Quite simply, you would have the world’s best discus thrower to have ever lived or died.

With the super-soldier serum slowing down his ageing process, Captain America could just keep winning Olympic gold medals, long after other competitors were dead and gone.
