There are so many extraordinary athletes participating in the games this year, it's been incredible to witness. But what if you were given the opportunity to road trip with one of them?

We recently conducted a survey asking participants which Olympic athlete they would most like to hit the open road with, if given the chance. Fifty-eight percent said that among male Olympians, swimmer Michael Phelps would be their top choice. Simone Biles and Katie Ledecky tied (26%) for shotgun with road-trippers among female Olympians.

Perhaps survey respondents hope those gold medals will ride along in the back seat. Or, maybe respondents simply want to hear all about the medal-worthy Olympic experiences.

Among the men, here's who rounded out the list of most-desired fellow travelers:

  • Jordan Spieth (15%)
  • Usain Bolt (14%)
  • Ashton Eaton (7%)
  • David Boudia (5%)

Among the women, a road trip would be complete with:

  • Alex Morgan (22%)
  • Kerry Walsh Jennings (22%)
  • Ibtihaj Muhammad (3%)
