* Jamaican, Kenyan and Ethiopian Track & Field Runners and Marathonists are among the best of the world.

world. There is some indication that both cultural aspects (many people in Ethiopia regularly walk long distances in high altitudes) as well as genetic aspects play a role in this, but interestingly enough the countries that are good at long distance running are mostly in East Africa and the people who are good at sprinting are mostly of West African descent (either born and raised in West Africa or descendants of West African slaves).
* For obvious reasons the best players of UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball come from the USA and to a lesser extent Canada with places like Mexico, Japan or ''the entirety of Europe'' somewhere down the line. This is so pronounced that most European leagues of American Football actually limit the number of "Americans" per team in lieu of a salary cap.

[[AC:Sports]]
* UsefulNotes/EuroFooty has the most prestigious tournaments of UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball. In Brazil, seeing youngsters disregard their local and still very competitive tournament for European teams is a point of contention (including the term "Playstation Generation", claiming many fans only like the European teams after playing much ''VideoGame/FIFASoccer'', ''Pro Evolution Soccer'' and ''VideoGame/FootballManager'').
** Because different countries tend to follow different doctrines in regards to tactics, players that come from said countries tend to be more specialized in certain roles, making them more valuable than players from other nations in certain positions:
*** Italian goalkeepers at actual goalkeeping. German ones for ball control with the feet.
*** Italian defenders, as a [[StoneWall good defensive system]] is the core of the Italian school of football.
*** Spanish or German playmakers. The former for creativity, the latter for efficience.
*** Brazilian wingers or attacking midfielders, due to speed and rapid dribbling.
*** Argentinian strikers, with very offensive football being valued in the country.
*** For the clubs themselves, BritishFootyTeams probably hold the most prestige overall due to the sheer popularity and money granted by the EnglishPremierLeague.

* The German instant pizza label ''Wagner'' (owned by Swiss firm Nestlé) once produced a number of commercials of people in typically pizza-consuming countries like Italy, America and the ''Holy See'' fawning over how great the pizza they're eating tastes, until someone reveals that it's German, and from Wagner. Cue the diners' shock and awe-struck faces. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngmX0LwuLo0 Here be the American one.]]
