Interesting article.

I remember seeing an interview on tv with one of the coaches of an Olympic team (think he was an Aussie) a while back where they asked him about testing childrens genes for athletic potential. This isn't verbatim but his reply went along the lines of ".... you don't need to do fancy tests on kids to find potential elite athletes, you just line a bunch of 'em up and shout "first one to that tree gets a chocky bar!". The one that wins the chocolate is the one with the most potential.......or the hungriest.....which is the same thing really."
