Hard work trumps talent 99 times out of 100.

Of course there are rare exceptions where an athlete has a terrible lifestyle, but still somehow performs amazingly. But this is extremely rare, and it doesn't seem like Nazem is one of these cases.
You said "You get payed millions" twice in the above statement.
So these so called dedicated professionals who have to suffer through all those workouts, get lots of sleep and healthy eating got it pretty damned good, don't you think??
