The DNA of Running

Can your unique genetic code help unlock your sporting potential?

Over the years, many athletes have wondered how they can identify unique things about their bodies that they can leverage to optimise their sporting potential. The question is not “how did he or she do it”, but rather, “how can I do it?”

What can I do to reach that extra speed, clock that extra distance, or achieve my personal best?

What is unique about me?

Now, a genetic test can be done to determine which unique factors lie in your DNA that you can leverage to achieve exactly that. While DNA testing used to be expensive and accessible to only an elite few, the technology is proliferating fast, costs are decreasing and you now have multiple options to choose from to explore this avenue. The result is that a new generation of  athletes is embracing the opportunity to learn more about their bodies, and subsequently using this data to their advantage.

Dr Christa North studies athletes René Kalmer and Deirdre Larkin and reveals some fascinating insights. Read the full article here.
