Ed Wilson  asked the Naked Scientists:
   Working on from your piece on fiddler crabs, what asymmetries are observable in humans who engage in extreme activities such as sport?  A tennis player appears to use one arm far more than the other.  A golfer repeats actions with the two arms doing predictably different jobs.  Do muscles on the two sides develop differently?

What do you think?
