I have an opinion, and so do you. And, if you thought it out a bit, you might even swing over to mine more.
Yes when there is a much Larger pool of potential shooters in a given country, they might have an edge. And if there are good coaches available, and strong motivation on a NATIONAL level to put together a winning airgun shooting team, thats a plus. And when a country has the habit of selecting young children from huge pools of candidates, and giving STRONG incentive to the parents of those children for them to do well, thats a plus for their Olympic hopes too.
NOW, lets say you canvassed thru around a MILLION potential young shooters for your airgun program and selected a thousand. Then you gave them all preliminary training, and picked the best 100 ... then you trained them all some more, and tested them ... finding (of course) that there were a few at the top, lots n the middle, and a few at the bottom.
And with this, you don't think genes played a part in the reason why there were a few at the top and a few at the bottom, with many in the middle?
And .. wanna BET there were no midgets, giants, huge obese kids, weakling skinny as a rail kids even making the FIRST cut? Why IS that?
