The gifted students (who were classified as below average) had significantly lower IQ scores.
The below average students (who were classified as gifted) had significantly higher IQ scores.

As an athlete, coach, teacher or parent, we should always assume that greatness is attainable.
Because it is.
Remember Henry Ford…
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, either way, you’re right.”
