Superhumans of Sport

Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps and Cristiano Ronaldo are among the most elite athletes in the world and could be termed “Superhumans of Sports.” Hard work, training like no other and the accolades that come with it set these and a few others apart from the rest.

So how did Michael Phelps win those 23 Gold Medals? It is simply amazing to see his domination of the sport that spanned 16 years, from 2000, when he turned pro, until 2016, his last Olympics. Phelps trained 36 hours per week, so this was clearly a full-time job and his dedication paid off and to keep his body going at that rate, he had to consume a massive 12,000 calories per day.

“Swimming is normal for me. I’m relaxed, I’m comfortable and I know my surroundings, it’s my home,” Phelps said.

Clearly to train at this level you need a love of the sport and that is what you get from the top athletes of the world like Phelps. Bolt, Ronaldo, Simone Biles, Chris Froome and Ellie Simmonds, simply the best of the best. These “Superhumans of Sports” have one thing in common, they train hard and don’t let age get in the way of being the best.
