The Development of Talent in Sports: A Dynamic Network Approach

Figure 2

Results of the simulations of three athletes’ talent networks. The black solid lines in the graphs correspond to the ability variable, represented by node 3 in the network. The other lines reflect the changes in the dynamic network variables that have supportive, competitive, or neutral relationships with the ability. The meaning of these variables differs among individuals and constitutes an individual’s idiosyncratic network. The starting values of the parameters were drawn from the distributions as defined in Table 1.
