Source please. I’d think someone who has never run a mile in their lives would probably die if they decided to run competitively all of a sudden. How the hell can you assume they’d have the stamina for a race without conditioning for it? Do you know anything about what it takes to be conditioned for track? How can you just spew this sort of nonsense.
Look at the greatest basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan. He was anything but a natural. Couldn’t even make his HS basketball team during his first try-outs. But then he got dedicated and started practicing for hours and hours and hours on end. And what do you know, after PRACTICING religiously he became the best of all time.
Most evidence out there points to the fact that people who are extremely “talented” are just people who were more dedicated to their craft than everyone else. There’s a book on the Beatles that talks about how they weren’t prodigies (because there’s no such thing as a prodigy), just a bunch of guys who took their craft more seriously than all of their contemporaries and thus were better at it than anyone else.
Who was the famous classical composer that was composing music at age 10? Because I remember reading that the only reason he was so good at that age was because his father was a composer and made him practice for 10 hours a day since he was like 5 or 6.
Now if there’s no such thing as a sports prodigy or a musical prodigy then there sure as hell isn’t such a thing as a “Street Fighter” prodigy…
