Maybe James T. Kirk Was a Triathlete
I like Star Trek.
Here's a quote from the internet that may just explain why sport is so important to most of humanity.
Our species can only survive if we have obstacles to overcome. You remove those obstacles. Without them to strengthen us, we will weaken and die."
James T. Kirk, (episode: Metamorphosis)
For being such a rebellious young man, Captain Kirk was pretty darn smart.
