In professional sports can you name a professional athlete who has been successful as a professional in two sports? The first person who comes to my mind is Bo Jackson, superstar pro football and baseball player. After Bo, ‘who knows’?
Now, name a professional athlete who failed to excel as a pro in two sports. The most obvious choice is one of the greatest athletes of all time, Michael Jordan. Basketball was his gift, and it was magical to watch him on the court. But when it came to applying his competitive advantage and skill to baseball, it just didn’t work out as well.
