Hi Alois and Pingskills
i want to know if is possible have a great level if you started a little late...i started to the age of sixteen years old, is possible that i have an international level???
I don't think there is any technical reason why you can't reach International level when you start at 16. The problem is usually time. To become an International level player you need around 10 years of quality training. If you start at 16, you can potentially reach that level by 26. After you turn 20 or so, other life commitments can hamper your ability to train enough. I think that's a big reason why people who start later in life never reach International level.
I'd love to hear other people's thoughts.
