The so called 'sprinters gene' is found in it's greatest density in west africa, with many people holding double copies of the gene. The gene has a stacking affect, but adversely affects stamina.
You also have other genes which we don't have quite understand yet.

The better question is, what is your metric for elite genetics?

said, it is what metric you are testing.

I would say something like this
>endurance
If the average untrained person can run 1 mile before they have to stop, elite would be someone who untrained can run 3-5 miles without stopping
>strength
If the average untrained man benches 135 as a max, elite would be a man who benches 205-225 for their max
>all around, top tier
Would be someone who can do both

Ignore the values I wrote, I’m using random numbers for explanation sake because I just woke up. I understand those are in no way accurate and I’m sure some cardio homosexual will whine “3-5 being elite LUL HAHAHA SO PATHETIC” (cool bro go pat yourself on the back) or some dyel newbie within his first 2 years will start seething “135 MOST OF THE POPULATION CANT DO THAT UNTRAINED” (yeah cool bro go pat yourself on the back).

So in short just naturally significantly better at various physical activities. I would also assume there would be something about ceilings. How far one can go vs another. So if man A and man B both start out only being able to run 1 mile, maybe in 12 months Man A can run 5 miles nonstop while man B can run over 10 nonstop despite Sam exist and training. Same shit with lifting.
Higher ceiling
Faster progression
Natural starting point
Individual activity being tested (do they suck ass in one activity but excel in another? And would that technically imply a sense of equality? Would only the truly elite be advanced in all types of activities?)

Reality is misleading because plenty of fatties and lazies are wasting their potential.

if you define the nfl as elite genetics

>1M senior high school boys play football
>about 250 players get drafted by the nfl each year

so about 1 in 4000, but anyone who makes d1 in college has elite physicality and at that point skills, game sense, attitude, etc. separates them. so if you have about 20k d1 football scholarships, or hand out about 5000 a year, of those 1m seniors, 1 in 200 are d1-level, or 'elite'
