It’s time for the championship.

Thirty-two athletes entered, and now the final two remain, duking it out for the title of Ultimate Philly Athlete. Is it Mike Schmidt or Bobby Clarke?

Schmidt, the famous Phillies third baseman who slugged home runs and brought the city a World Series title, beat Wilt Chamberlain in the Final Four. Clarke, captain of the back-to-back Stanley Cup winning Broad Street Bullies, beat Julius Erving.

Which one is Philly’s Ultimate Athlete? You have decided — we will unveil the winner on Monday morning.
