  • Scene #1
  • "Poll vauting is kinda boring but I won the 2007 world  championship after practicing for 7th months."-thomas
  • I have been a professional for years and I lost to thomas." - Holmes
  • Scene #2
  • "both Thomas’s long legs relative to his height and also that he was gifted with a giant’s Achilles tendon. Whereas Holm’s Achilles was a more normal-sized, incredibly stiff spring, Thomas’s, at ten and a quarter inches, was uncharacteristically long for an athlete his height." -Shikawa
  • Scene #3
  • " the tendons are one puzzle piece that helps explain how two athletes could arrive at essentially the same place, one after a twenty-year love affair with his craft, and the other with less than a year of serious practice after stumbling into it on a friendly bet.." -Shikawa & Hunter
  • Sports gene #1 main idea- One main idea in,"the sports gene" Is some people are better suited for things than others, based on their genes. Scene one shows Thomas winning the 2007 world cup whos only had 7 months of legitiment training to his competitor, who is a professional. " The guy in pole vault shoes who thinks high jump is “kind of boring” was crowned the 2007 world champion. On his winning jump, Thomas raised his center of mass to 8’2”. Had he any semblance of the back arch that every other pro jumper does, he would have shattered the world record.".. (Epstein)
  • Scene #4
  • "both Thomas’s long legs relative to his height and also that he was gifted with a giant’s Achilles tendon. Whereas Holm’s Achilles was a more normal-sized, incredibly stiff spring, Thomas’s, at ten and a quarter inches, was uncharacteristically long for an athlete his height. The longer (and stiffer) the Achilles tendon, the more elastic energy it can store when compressed. All the better to rocket the owner into the air" -Shikawa
  • The central idea of the "sports gene" is some people are more naturally equipped then others. " Ishikawa noted both Thomas’s long legs relative to his height and also that he was gifted with a giant’s Achilles tendon. Whereas Holm’s Achilles was a more normal-sized, incredibly stiff spring, Thomas’s, at ten and a quarter inches, was uncharacteristically long for an athlete his height.".. (Epstein)
  • Scene #5
  • Neither Ishikawa nor Hunter would suggest that the sole secret to the jumping success of Holm and Thomas is in their Achilles tendons. But the tendons are one puzzle piece that helps explain how two athletes could arrive at essentially the same place, one after a twenty-year love affair with his craft, and the other with less than a year of serious practice after stumbling into it on a friendly bet. " - Shikawa & Hunter

  • Scene #6
  • And while it appears that an individual can increase tendon stiffness by training, there is also evidence that stiffness is partly influenced by an individual’s versions of genes involved in making collagen, a protein in the body that builds ligaments and tendons." -The author
  • Main idea #2- Another main idea in the "sports gene " is your physical features and the amount of effort you put into your craft greatly affects you're outcome. For example, Thomas was great at high up do to his Long stiff Achilles tendon. "shikawa noted both Thomas’s long legs relative to his height and also that he was gifted with a giant’s Achilles tendon. Whereas Holm’s Achilles was a more normal-sized, incredibly stiff spring, Thomas’s, at ten and a quarter inches, was uncharacteristically long for an athlete his height.
