I was really, really good at high jump. My city has a big track and field training center with many olympic athletes coming from here and was part of their program for a while before it became clear that me being a manlet would be too big of a hurdle to overcome. My technique and springiness were top drawer but my physique gave me a way too low ceiling to ever seriously compete in anything.
Still, jumping over virtually your own height felt really fucking good. And from the videos I've seen it looks super cool too.
I got recruited to a few D1 schools for hurdling. Decided to try it back in high school because I was trying to get with this qt3.14 who was hurdling as well. Best decision I ever made because without those scholarships I would have never gone to college.
>>64514523 Same man. I was top 30 in Southern California. Sucks that there's nowhere to do that anymore. There's no pickup wreslting like there is for basketball or football and shit. That's just gay sex. Doesn't really translate to being good in other sports either which sucks.
I was decent at Hockey and Basketball (played both competitively), but was very good at American Football. I was a TE throughout high school, and in my senior season our team went 13-1 (lost in provincials) and had 22 TDs and ~950 yards.
I'm unironically good at all sports I've ever played, but not elite-level in any. At school I was in every one of our sports teams (captained rugby, cricket and football at one point, and played cricket and football for older age groups too), and I represented my county for 800m and 1500m. I also had trials for my local professional cricket team and have played against professional players, but I never made it myself. These days I just play football recreationally, am in training to run ultramarathons, and study a sport-related subject at the best sporting university in the country, if not the world.
Despite all this jockness, I have always been and remain shy, socially awkward, and depressed, hence why I am on 4chan.
I literally could have been a pro football player.
My cousin and I were really good growing up. We were scouted by a local team, we were the 2 best players when we joined. When we turned 13 he got his testosterone boost like most teenagers, I didn't, I was a late bloomer. I was a child surrounded by men basically, I got overpowered and kicked out. This was right before the Masia boom, so youth teams picked the strongest kids, and discarded kids like me regardless of talent.
He turned semi pro at 18, died in a traffic accident soon later. RIP cousin. But if I had bloomed early and kept up with the other guys, I could have at least made it to 3rd league as a midfielder, making a cheeky 600€/month which is what my cousin was making.
