Again, there are two very broad and unsupported assumptions behind what you're arguing:
1) Athletic genius is distributed across populations by random chance.
And how exactly is athletic genius distributed across population? Make a strong case, please.
I'm saying it's pretty easily by random chance, because most of the things in life are in fact just this... random.
I think some of you should read Fooled By Randomness by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.
It's a modern classic. Not quite Shakespeare, but very interesting book that gives some food for a thought.
