    Or it could be he's the only/one of the few kids in his school who's seriously considering a career in sport, and is better conditioned to any event than the other 16 year old spotty kids who live in a couple of mile radius of him.

    Yeah depends on the size and focus of the school, without which you've no idea really. If someone dominated the records at somewhere like Hartpury you'd hear about them.

    I get and agree with the reservations others have said, but I'm amazed he won the high jump. Like high jumpers are usually tall and extremely thin people, but even as a youngster Lomu was muscle-bound. He must have had legs like anti-aircraft guns.

    The American tightend/linebackers who were also exceptional track and basketball stars in high school tend to have that incredible combination of speed and agility.

    I reckon most sportsmen would do similar given the opportunity. A lot of sporting skills are pretty transferrable.

    It's like music. A concert pianist might not be as proficient on other instruments but they're hardly going to be dumbfounded if they pick up a violin.
