    many years ago, West Indian cricketers were among the best in the world as far as batting the ball was concerned. a medical professional observed that they possessed that ability because of the way their wrists were made up.
    Agreed. To a point also. My disagreement really had to do with classifying that type of genetics only to a certain island or region of the world. That's all but otherwise, I agree. A slow guy won't be attracted to being a world class sprinter (I hope not lol) but may be inclined to choose a sport that does not require lots of speed. A 5'4" guy won't play center in the NBA (No matter how much he may want to) but may be a guard. Yes, Genetics does have something to do with how good you are at something that fits your genetic predisposition. After all, the East Germans tried to perfect that but ended up creating deformed monstrosities.
