A high school coach of mine once said “In sports, speed cures all evils”. In other words, if you are fast, you’ll always do well, in almost any sport. Speed is one of the most significant factors that set athletes apart in any sport, at any level. A small number of people are born with speed. They inherit the proper muscle fiber type, limb lengths, and neuromuscular system from their parents.
