I was only referring to physical capabilities. I ran track for 10 years (middle school through collegiate, division, section, state, easterns medalist), it isn't a myth. There are always going to be genetic freaks who can walk on a track without ever training before and break a school record...most of the time its a black guy/girl. I've never seen a white kid do that in my entire life. One of my best friends in high school was one of those guys, broke my long jump record wearing regular sneakers and never showing up for practice. Incredibly gifted.
