DNA tests reveal the best sports for a child?

FRESNO, Calif.

A Colorado-based company is offering DNA tests that it says can determine which sport a child would be better at.

The test is pretty easy: a lab swabs the child's mouth, then lab technicians look for two variants of a specific gene.

The variants determine if your child is good at sports like football that require strength, or swimming, which requires more endurance.

Critics say the company's claims are false, and say there are plenty of athletes who have won major titles without having the correct genes.

Would you have your children DNA tested to make sure they focused on the right sports?
