It is difficult to explain why some athletes are better than others, but usually the reasons include being born with natural skills; having a commitment to practice; a positive attitude about the sport; receiving good coaching and mentoring; and having opportunities for high-level training. The Brazilian-born soccer (football) star Edison Arantes do Nascimento, better known as Pele, had a long and widely-respected career, in which he set records that have never been broken.
