On the list because rowing is a sport that throws your soul down in a chair under a bright light and asks "are you man enough?" for hours on end, and Pinsent's soul has responded with Olympic gold in '92, '96, and '00, and 10 World Championship gold medals since 1991.
On the list because he is the world all-around gymnastic champion. That means rings, vault, pommel horse, high bar, parallel bars, and floor exercises. That means versatility, flexibility, durability, and any other -ity you want to name.
