I don't think it's about a lack of athleticism. There are many sports where a specific kind of athleticism isn't needed. Genetically, we aren't that much different from Serbs and Croats, but they somehow produce great individual athletes consistently. Where's our great high jumper? Where's our great weightlifter? As someone said above, it's probably a combination of mentality and culture. We tend to produce young people that either pursue soccer or nothing else. As you said, with so many thousands of Bosnian Americans going to American high schools with their world class facilities, it's strange that we haven't produced one world class athlete, besides maybe Ibisevic (and that's a stretch there). There's something about us that prevents us from being better, but I don't think inherent genetic limitations is the reason. And then we produce someone with potential (Tuka), he doesn't produce when it matters the most. All the wins he had last year at track meets will be forgotten. You have to perform when it matters most. Look at Serbia, their women's volleyball team beat the United States, even though volleyball is played at every high school, every college in the United States, and the pool is much much larger than Serbia. But Serbia, due to their strong sports culture (particularly in team sports) can overcome the inherent disadvantages against much larger nations. This drives me crazy because we should have produced one world class athlete just randomly over time. But we can't even stumble on one.
