Are super athletes born or made? Join us this month as our panel of experts takes on the nature vs nurture debate in sports and genetics.

From cultural norms to scientific factors, the field of sports is a complex and fascinating arena.

Whether you’re an Olympic weightlifter or a basketball player, your genetics can give you an edge, but they’re not the only factors at play. Family support, economic status, coaching, training and diet also make a difference.

Join our experts as they explore the latest scientific research, unpack the social implications of athletic excellence, and discuss how these important conversations can improve health, guide policy, and put the emphasis on evidence-based decisions.
