I totally agree, thousands and thousands of kids can win a math competition, a music festival or a dance competion. All of those take brains or memory or some speciallized skill.

Almost 500 people have gone into space whereas those who have circumnavigated solo are less than half of that. And to be a young female sailor in that group, Well done Jessica Watson!
