Courage... Determination... Raw Talent... Discipline... Drive... Self-confidence... These are all great characteristics of amazing athletes. Athletes also can have specific areas that they excel in such as power, strength, speed, balance... I regard mines to be my ''Off the couch performance''!
It's maybe not something I should be proud of, but is there any other test of endurance than sitting on your bum for a while then going for a jolly over the Grandes Jorasses?
