High performing athletes

Among the different shades of outliers we have in our world. High performing athletes fascinate me the most. 

There’s a footballer  called Cristiano Ronaldo. He currently has 817 goals in his career. 

To put that into context, If a player scores 50 goals for the next 16 seasons, they will have 800 career goals. Cristiano Ronaldo has 817 career goals.

Those are wild numbers, you try to think about it and your mind just goes numb. Every outlier rises upon the back of a significant lever. But these athletes do miracles with whatever leverage they get.
