What is the connection between autism and poor performance in sports? Why are we bad at sports?

I have mild autism and have always had significant difficulty when it comes to sports. Of course, I don't know how others feel normally but I feel like my muscles are too weak besides me being very clumsy. It literally hurts to do sports. I don't understand how it can be enjoyable to others.


I suggest trying different sports, or different activities. As a former college athlete, I didn't realize how many great things I missed out on during my youth. I don't regret my dedication but I wish I had taken some time to develop other interests, like music, art, or cooking.
