The only ones right around their potentials are the genetic elites. The champions.

If they are beat it's by only a very small hair...and not by pounds and pounds. Not a single one of these champions has bested their potentials by a noteworthy amount.

The formula is so accurate that is predicted most champions max weight within 0.1 pounds.
