Well, I happen to be watching the Russian female gymnasts as I'm writing
this, and I was just thinking before I read your message that this looks
JUST like the sort of thing the Mizarians would excel at. There's no doubt
that gymnastics and other sports involving precise coordination would be
popular among Mizarians, although the Elves would put up quite a strong
challenge in that area. Zireen, due to their small size, certainly aren't
going to be doing any weight lifting! I suppose they'd be good at events
that require quick reactions, like table tennis.
