I reckon age is part of the problem but it may well be the fitness isuue here. The USA should set up an organisation like the AIS if you look at what they have done for Soccer players and Austarlian sport in general then it would certainly be worth the money. I know that members os the Scottish Parliment went to OZ to see how AIS works and were so impressed that they are planning one for Scotland.

Does the US have anything like the AIS?

Sorry I maybe should have explained. AIS stands for the Australian Institute of Sport, it is a government backed organization that takes youngsters who are gifted in sports and trains them to be the best in their chosen field, the AIS also offers medical and physiological training to sportsmen and women who need it, they also try to promote Australian sport and work to get talented youngsters professional contracts. Players who have been through the AIS normally excel in the sport they play.
Footballers such as Harry Redknapp, Craig Moore, Mark Viduka ( I think) have all come through the AIS, 90% of the Australian Olympic team also did, along with various cricketers, rugby players etc.
If you want to know the affect AIS has had on Ozzy sport just ask yourself as a country is Australia good at sports or bad?
