“If we trained the Horses like we did the people, we’d kill them.”

This was a quote by Michael Phelps coach, Bob Bowman when talking about Phelps’ (and his fellow swimmer’s) training regime. Bowman not only trains Olympic swimmers but he also trains thoroughbred racehorses.

I liked that quote because it shows that the people at the top of their sport don’t get their by genetics or luck (although both of those would help). Those people, more likely than not, train much harder than the rest of the field.
