Want A Sports Superstar? Give Birth In The Early Months

Thinking of having another child? What do you want your unborn child to be like? If you want to have a child who's going to be a sports superstar, then you have to make sure that he or she is born in the month of January. Want to know why?

Researchers from the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation at the University of Queensland said that a person's birth month can influence his or her fitness and sports ability in the future. In their research, they examined the birthdays of several professional football players in Australia and discovered that a big percentage of them had birthdays in the early months of the year.

They explained that children who are born at the start of the year are usually taller and bigger than their classmates. This usually makes them very confident, especially in sports, compared to those who are born in later months. These researchers also said that smaller children often feel intimidated by their bigger classmates so they end up not playing sports at all.

This is an interesting study but the researchers forgot to take into account the players' genetic structure, individual preferences and interests, and parental or adult influences. But then, there's no harm in testing out their theory. So plan your pregnancy in such a way that you give birth in the early months and try to see if you produce a future sports superstar.
