Athleticism. It’s a word that means so much in the world of sports, yet it is often hard to identify what exactly it means to be athletic. The assumption is that the most athletic people are the ones who reach the highest levels of their respective games. In the NBA, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James and Michael Jordan immediately come to mind. In the NFL, we think of Michael Vick and Calvin Johnson. In the MLB, names like Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano come into conversation.

For athletes of all levels across America and the rest of the world, sports are about competition, character building and the camaraderie of teamwork.
