I recently had a conversation that, for some reason, turned to a question of the people in modern history who were all-around amazing people. People who were not only very intelligent but very athletic as well, etc. I only came up with a couple of great athletes who are fairly smart (Myron Rolle and, to a lesser extent, David Robinson). The other person came up with Neils Bohr, saying that he was on the Danish Olympic football team (he wasn't, his brother Harald was, but Neils was still pretty good). But all of these people were/are very good at one thing and merely competent at others. Does anyone know of any people who were truly amazing in both mind and body? EDIT: Let's use rootX's definition: "all around genius: excellence in science, art, literature, people skills and sports." I think Richard Feynman and John von Neumann come into play as great scientific minds and social butterflies both. But no athleticism (unless bongos counts as athleticism).
