Potter (I call him The Kid) just turned 50 but he looks like he is 30!  We are OLD!

Bruce Lee for sure; crazy strong, intense focus, ripped, smart, imaginative and a training fiend.

I bet some figure skaters would do well. They would probably develope superb technique.

What about this guy? I bet he would be good at speed climbing.

He probably wouldn't fit into any list of mainstream athletes though.

Mark there was no requirement listed for the athletes to have crazy hairstyles....wtf?  :)

Jim Thorpe would have crushed if he had a little time to lose a few pounds. He even has a town named after him in the mountains.

Jeez, totally OT but I haven't heard of Jim Thorpe (PA; Mauch Chunk, in my mind!) for ages.  Grew up nearby

Carry on.
