Unlike Virgo, it was easy
to think of competitions that Libra could be good at. Libra has always been
associated with balance and to a slightly lesser degree to artistic attributes
so the most obvious place to start looking was Artistic Gymnastics. And I was
not disappointed. It seems that Floor Exercises, whether performed by men or
women, is their forte and here is the chart that shows it.
All Artistic Gymnastic Floor Exercise
This is significant at
around the 1 in 50 level.
From here, it was an easy
task to look for sporting competitions that required a greater than average
degree of balance. The next one I found was Long Jumping. Taking all long
jumping and triple jumping competitions together gives the following chart.
All Long and Triple Jump
significant for Libra at around the 1 in 100 level.
are also two Olympic Sports requiring balance that Libra medallists score highly
are significantly better at Curling and get more medals than any other sign in
Football (Soccer). These sports are of particular interest because, as well as
requiring a very good sense of balance, they demonstrate what I think is another
appears that Librans have an above average ability to curve balls and stones
used in sport. For example, in Curling, stones are often “curled” into a ring to
avoid other stones that have been placed directly in front of the ring on the
ice. In football, being able to bend the
ball is a prime factor and contributes to it being called “the beautiful game”.
I believe this explains
another positive significance I found for Libran medallists in Table Tennis
singles. For Table Tennis, Wikipedia tells us that “Certain world-class players
can impart spin approaching 9000 r.p.m. on table tennis balls.” and that “Ball
spin …plays an important part in competitive table tennis matches”.
Putting these significant
results together along with a result I found regarding the number of Libran
spinners compared with other signs in my Ashes cricketers compilation, gives
this chart, with a probability of Libran athletes coming from a chance
distribution in the region of 1 in 180,000.
All Olympic Curling & Table Tennis Singles
Competitions plus all Cricket “Ashes” bowlers who are recognised as spinners
I have noticed that
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius often go together, i.e. if one sign does well, so do
the other two. These three signs are traditionally thought to go together
because they are all thought to be Air signs.
