Rarely. As with academic giftedness, athletic giftedness is rare. And .......well.........how do you define it ? There are so many attributes to physical intelligence.

I would say there are specific markers that are sport-specific. For example, a child who would make a great acrobat has a load of fast-twitch muscle, is flexible, and has a strong core. They need to have excellent kinesthetic awareness (brain-aware on how to move) & proprioception (brain-aware on where the body parts are).

....more later . Gotta go....
