Thanks Brian! The podcast uses David Eccles from Florida State as a guest expert and he said in the podcast he had done quite alot of research on orienteering so I checked out his webpage. I didn't buy the full paper but I like this conclusion from the abstract of his 2015 synthesis paper:

"Thus, superior performance in sport may not be the possession of only a privileged few; it may be available to all aspiring athletes."

There is hope for me yet ...
