If you looking for the difference between the good international sports men and the brilliant outstanding in a different class sportsmen there are two characteristics that is always standing out and that is balance and time. If they doing something on the sports field it always look so easy and it always look like they got so much more time to make a decision.
There are quit a lot of them you can single out like, Pele, Maradonna, Jacques Kallis, Torres, Kaka, Naas Botha, Tiger Woods, Dan Carter, Matt Giteau and many more. These guys just let it seem so simple and so easy to do what they do and have done.
The question is it talent or is it just plain hard work. My opinion is that it is just hard work and more hard work. A co cyclist told Neil Armstrong once that he got such a lot of talent and Neil answered him “And where were you last winter when i was practicing in the Alps?”
