My Boyhood Sports Icons Are Dying: Pelé


Pelé is the the only man to win the World Cup three times, winning with Brazil in the 1958, 1962 and 1970 tournaments. At the time of his first World Cup competition, Pelé was 17 years old and the youngest player to ever participate.

In 1999, the International Olympic Committee gave him the honor of Athlete of the Century.

RIP Pelé
