    Could be.

    I'm inclined to believe that there's a genetic component to mental things like the ability focus/concentrate, visualize angles, hand eye coordination, and work ethic. Some people's brains may just be wired that way.

    (Enter the psychologists to brawl over nature/nurture... My feeling is that nature influences nurture itself, and how the mind takes to nurture.)

    Also, she probably also started playing when she was 3. That's gotta count for something too.
    The harder I work the luckier I get...
    ...Just lucky that way, I guess.

      There is definitely a genetic component - BUT - is that genetic "advantage" expressed physically? Such as muscularity, structure, etc. Or is it mental? Ability to focus, etc.

      Also - what impact does upbringing have on all these factors?

      Interesting topic.

      EDIT - thumbs up to Raptor.

        to say that genetics doesn't rule sports is absurd. athletes can certainly train to become better (both mentally and physically) - and that "better" can be drastic for some, but everyone has a competitive ceiling - those with better genetics have a much higher ceiling. Slow people can become less slow (but not real fast), fast people can become faster, just like weak people can become stronger, etc...

        that's not to downplay hardwork, commitment, etc because a person with average genetics can outwork a lazy person with superior genetics and become better...but be realistic, you either have the tools or you don't.

          Well, I don't have to type much after this response. Personally, these are my thoughts EXACTLY.

          Sure, there are mental and physical components and nature vs. nurture and all of that complicated stuff but when push comes to shove, this girls skills are what they are from a genetic standpoint, first and foremost. If this were not the case, shouldn't couldn't possibly practice enough, even if she started at 1 year old, to lead that field. There were many others out there that worked just as hard and probably even much harder for longer periods of time.

          It is SICK to me how the next generation always blows away the last. CRAZY.

            yep and i think with how much knowledge we pass from cohort to cohort it also facilitates the "nurture" at a much greater, more focused, productive rate - doubling the generation effects of performance and human ability.

                        Jay's basically mirrored my thoughts on this. Genetics definitely play a part in ones success in their endeavors. Hard work definitely helps substitute lack of genetics, but I don't think it will fully replace what isn't there naturally. Take professional athletes for example, it'd be interesting to have a statistic that shows how many of them have athletic parents, or grandparents. It'd be interesting to possibly take it even further with genealogy research to see what kind of lives their ancestors lived years and years ago. Or would that be a bit too far?

                          So are you pronouncing your intention to blow skip?

                          Blow away, I mean.

                            there is always strong ties to families in athletics, but that always brings up the question of whether it was the genetics/nature or the "nurture" of having been raised by former or current athletes...I'm sure there's studies out there regarding this - possibly adoption studies or that sort of thing, I just personally have never looked that deep into it other than basic articles and observations.
