However, some things are better! I came across this video of some kids training for football (soccer for the americans). What I like about it is that it shows some great techniques and drills, yet the athletes are "normal". They are like the vast majority of us - not especially gifted, not hugely muscular or incredibly fast. They are just normal lads who are training to get better for their sport.
In many ways I find this more inspiring that some of the elite athletes out there!
