Babe Didrikson Zaharias:All-American in basketball, expert diver, in the Golf Hall Of Fame, and won Olympic medals in the high jump, javelin throw, and hurdles. She was voted the AP Woman Athlete of the Year 6 years. Amazing athlete, so she gets my vote.

I suppose greatest is hard to say because it depends on what you're judging by...

But my personal favorite is Gina Carano.

Fiona Oakes, vegan runner currently taking on the amazing difficult ultra Marathon de Sables, should be on the list.

I don't know if she's the "greatest" female athlete, but I adore Martina Navratilova.
