Can genes make you a better athlete? Elizabeth Vidoli
Just because you have a particular variant doesn't mean you're predestined to being a sprinter
Genetic testing can also show if a person is more likely to get an injury. This can allow athletes and coaches to take preventative measures in their training to prevent these injures.
The Future? The Worthiness in this information?
For medicine, I think it will impact the amount of athletes coming in with sports injuries, such as ACL repair. So many athletes are more susceptible to injuries due to the amount of work they put into practicing, and genetic testing can help prevent that. It will lessen the surgeries, and physical therapy needs, and athletes will be able to continue doing what they love, and not have to take time off for injuries.
