Olympic Games are a stage for people with certain beneficial genetic mutations.
According to Juan Enriquez, the founding director of the Life Sciences Project at Harvard Business School: “Every male Olympic power athlete tested carries at least one copy of the 577R genotype”. A hormone that is usually not found in other human beings. “The Olympics are a genetic freak show”, says Timothy Caulfield, Canada Research Chair in Health Law and Technology, in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.
Anyhow, you don’t really need a diploma to see that Michael Phelps and other swimmers are “X-Men“. They have a perfect triangular torso, long legs and HUGE feet – they are like a mermaid. Male Gymnasts, with a bit of martial arts training, can easily turn into Spiderman or Batman. Sprinters like Usain Bolt are super-humans.
The athletes in the Olympics are in fact hard working mutants. Don’t get me wrong, the Olympic games are great to watch but they also explain why football is such a popular sport. I doubt Andres Iniesta could be a great Olympian. Luka Modric is not exactly a sprinter, Santi Cazorla is a tad chubby and It’s hard to imagine Wayne Rooney succeeding the pool. In short, it’s so easy for us to relate with them.
In short, football is the greatest game in the world because it’s a competition between humans. Not mutants.
