Olympic Freaks

Has anyone else noticed that to be the best you have to have freakish attributes. Missy Franklin has size 13 feet. Phelps is 6-4 with a 6-7 wing span, double jointed elbows and knees, flipper hands and size 14 feet. Usain bolt is 6-6 and just not your typical build of a sprinter. These athletes all have something that makes them uniquely different and not surprisingly, this gives them advantages that most of us don’t have. The cardinal rule of you can be anything you want is complete bullshit. I don’t care how hard you work, unless you have something that gives you some competitive edge, you’re screwed. Gabby Douglas got a huge dome, probably great for balance.
