Who agrees with this theory?
I believe that in order to become a sub 11 100 guy, you must achieve the capacity to work smarter and not just harder. Intelligent people are more willing to put in the time to educate themselves, so they know how to make better choices while dealing with nutrition, rest, strength, recovery, etc. Whereas more ignorant individuals develop a "warrior culture" and think that sprinting all-out every day will make them better, which leads to burnout, lack of motivation, injury, or just hating sprinting in general. Given the fact that the sprinters on my track team tend to have the highest average GPAs, I'd say this is a justifiable conclusion.
