    Don’t forget that the Norwegians also have Karston Warholm in the 400mH, and the 400m
    flat. Young man can run.

    All three Ingebrigtsens made it to the 1,500m final at the European Champs today. Great track meet........tremendous depth in most every event. Check it out.

    Equally impressive are the Borlee brothers of Belgium. All three of them won their 400m heat.

    So this probably tells us that genetics has more to do with your ultimate success than having the greatest coach and following specific training plans

    Because, of course, we are dealing with three brothers who were raised in different environments, trained by different coaches, and followed different training plans. Oh, wait...

    Has the coach produced any other athletes? Answer....nope. So back to the genetics link.

    Coaches don't make the athlete. Athletes make the coach. Coach can't turn chicken **** into chicken salad.
    Any club coach could have made Usain Bolt an Olympic champion.
    It's genetics not coaching

    Actually Usain Bolt switched from his first coach to the coach(Glen Mills) who directed him to three successful olympics. His first olympics was a disaster which led to him making a coaching change. Just wanted to put the facts out there.. lol

    Bolt was a poor example to bolster your argument. Carry on.... lol

    There is a fourth Borlee sibling, a sister Olivia, who has run all 3 sprints, and both relays for Belgium. Her best event is the 200m where she has run in the high 22’s. More evidence that genetics are very important to success.
    We have more of the Ingebrigtsens today, with all 3 in the 5,000m final. True, there are no Kenyans, nor Ethiopians in this event, but that does not diminish their collective talent.

    Belgium ( aka the Borlées ) won the European 4 x 4 in just under 3 mins, Once again, super DNA does it.

    The Borlée twins, Kevin and Jonathan, did not start track until they were 16. Within a year they competed for Belgium at the World Youth Champs, two years later they were at World Juniors and both won National Senior titles at the age of 18. Their father, and coach, won a European silver medal over 200m indoors. Most definitely super DNA!

    Edit - English video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-w5LfaWl5TU

    If you watch the video there, it looks like the brothers might have been planning to run it as a team sort of to try go 1-3. You can see how they all sit at the back and then move up to the front with 700 to go. And it all looks good up until the final bend where at about 4:19 in the video where they're running youngest to oldest and Filip (middle brother) loses it and blocks Henrik (oldest) while Jakob is moving along out front and the other guys are coming around the side. Henrik then moves around Filip and closes the gap a bit on Jakob but its too late at that point I think (moves up from 6th to 4th). Maybe could have seen a 1-2 finish by Jakob and Henrik if the brothers had played it a bit better?

    They did actually went 1 and 2 in the 5000m race yesterday. Double gold performance for Jakob and silver for Henrik. This running family is something else I tell you!!

    If you are seriously going to have a nature versus nurture argument here i think we all need to acknowledge that the two work together, hand in hand, to produce all results we see in people.

    Sure Bolt switched coaches. I could have coached him. It's genetics not coaching that determine success.

    The wrong coach can destroy even the most genetically gifted.
