[Former] Boston Celtic's star Robert Parish, who, at age 39, is the oldest player in the NBA, credits the ancient martial art of T'ai Chi with his durability. Parish remains dominant in his 17th season in the league, and he has no plans to retire. He started all 79 games that he played last year for the Celtics, averaging 14.1 points, shooting 54 percent from the field and 77 percent from the free throw line, and racking up a season total of 705 rebounds and 97 blocked shots. Inspired by his success, fellow Celtics players Reggie Lewis and Rick Fox have signed on with Li (Parish's T'ai Chi instructor). Gentlemen's Quarterly V. 62 Dec. 92, p 256-60 March 13, 1999


Tiger Woods' university golf coach wrote a book about Tiger's practice of Qigong as a young child, and how that may have resulted in his virtual superhuman ability to drive a golf ball.

NBA Coach, Phil Jackson, known as "the Zen Master," had the entire Chicago Bulls team learn meditation, which resulted in the legendary Bull's dynasty of several NBA championships.
