Genius in sports?
I recently recognised my brother's talents in badminton , his younger ..much younger , onli aged 8 ... I know it runs in our family blood that we are fast-learners but his ability are what i cannot comprehend , his footworks are taught in 2-hour session between me and him and he got it already ... Netting is his specialty and doing baseline-2-baseline is above wad most teenagers can do..
I believe he can take over me in 4 years time or so , any suggestion on how I can train him? P.S. he got a strong Badminton sense on shuttle's path

Get him a professional coach see what they think? If he is a natural badminton player a top level coach will recognise him.

maybe some players just "get it" faster than others. i know of some people that have been playing for years but if you watch them play, you would think they're just starting off. i remember this guy that just played for 4 months and he was already playing for the championship in our high school team playoffs. so i guess it all depends on the individual. try to get him a coach that might be able to recognize his abilities and skills. maybe he'll have the potential to become world champ one day.

Where are u based? If u are in Singapore, most of the schools should have a professional coach. Bring him down to join the session.

Hi Bunta Marui,
Whether yr bro is a genius or not, why not send him to be evaluated by a professional IQ assessor? They are people who can assess such early indicative traits in child and give them a headstart. One of the gifted talents in child is psychomotor ability and visual,performing art ability. Just get the professional's view, and u and yr parents will soon find the best ways to cater for his needs.
