Are Great Athletes Born Or Made?
Our genetic make-up certainly contributes to our performance in sports. Height, limb-length and our internal biological systems all contribute to our athletic success. However, practicing hard is the essential ingredient for greatness in sports and can help overcome genetic disadvantages. “Are Great Athletes Born or Made?” explores the question of whether athletic success is a matter of nature or nurture. This book will interest students who are interested in sports, biology, and human development. It would also compliment, and perhaps spark, a fruitful conversation about the various advantages and disadvantages people acquire at birth.
