New findings show that one of the most important factors in determining which sports one will be good at is correlated with location of one’s bellybutton. The idea is, where your bellybutton is, is where your center of gravity is—and this may determine your inherent abilities to run and swim. Those with higher a navel position tend to be better runners (because they usually have longer legs proportionate to their height), while people with a lower navel position are good swimmers (due to a longer torso).
