How important are good genes if you want to become a professional athlete? Gregory Sedoc, Dutch Olympian, investigates.

Top athletes must train hard to become the best in the world, but what role do genes play in their performance? Nowadays, by having your genes examined, you can see if you have a talent for sports. Gregory undergoes a gene research with his brothers and prof. dr. Hidde Haisma, coordinator of the Health and Life Sciences major at University College Groningen, analyses the results.
