All play a part, how hard is it to understand that? didn't every single one of us have physical education at school? jheeze.
You forget one, flexibility. Another way two similar athletes can have vastly different capabilities.

Those are basic athletic atributes.

Skill and Technique are learned and are sport specific. Height and reach are a non factor in someone's athletisism.
Yep, those raw attributes are the base from which skills and techniques can be molded.

Athleticism is sport specific. Different physique traits and attributes will be favoured by different sports and activities. Being tall is obviously an advantage in basketball, rowing etc, whereas its a clear disadvantage in say gymnastics. Athletic traits don't have to be trainable to be classified as such.

Also the answer is "physical traits (innate OR trained), that enable an athlete to succeed in certain sports. These traits can be anything (height, chin, robust joints and tendons etc). The more "physically suited" (through whatever useful traits he has) an athlete is to an activity the more "athletic" he is said to be at whatever the sport is. These traits are hardly universal (though some nearly are) and can be the opposite of "athletic" in another sport (fast twitch fibres in an endurance athlete etc).

I particularly enjoy those who irrationally fantasize about all of combat sports being dominated by black NBA players. If it helps you sleep at night.

Here you can see Carmelo Anthony's unforgiving killer fighting instinct on display. He first takes a cheap shot at another player, and then promptly backpedals with his tail tucked halfway down the court to safety.

I am sorry but bouncing and tossing a ball is not even in the same ballpark, or even the same realm of existence as fighting.



You are either born with that basic killer fighting instinct or you aren't. I am sure that most of you have seen Roger Huerta's street fight video with that football player who sucker punched the girl as well.

And don't tell me that just a few months of training/practice is all that it takes to crossover in to MMA. How come Shaq never learned to shoot free throws decently as a key skill within his own sport?

Some things you are either physically inclined towards or you are not. Just because you think that you learned to drive fast does not mean that you can suddenly win the Indianapolis 500 either.

You basically just brought up the whole GSP/Penn debate on which is the better definition of an athlete.

Yes he would take any of them to school. Steal their lunches too.
