Genetic talent is far more common than they choice to focus, train hard, take care of yourself, and sacrifice to be the best you can be. Hose traits are very rare. The ability to play sports at a high level is more common than we think.
This summer I coached a swim team. Perhaps 15 kids showed up semi-regularly, and out of those, I would say 2-3 have the ability to swim at the collegiate level if they chose to do so. That is a very small sample of potential talent, yet right there are gifted athletes that I made no effort to recruit. They just showed up.
However I am unsure if any are committed enough, or if their families are prepared to sacrifice as well, because parents have to be on bots too.
