lol my DD is totally not athletic, she's a nerd (and I mean that in a positive way). We have also had the chat that every child has different strengths and hers is her brain. For others they run really fast, or swim really well. I suppose that's my frustration in the gifted debate. I don't think my child is 'better' than any other. We really shy away from elitism and being snobby towards other kids that maybe don't read or know their maths as well. She is a very down to earth, kind child that knows she is smart but also sees the strengths in everyone.
