I remember watching a programme about a village somewhere in africa but the people there run everywhere, they ran to school, to work, to get water or
food the whole village everyone was always running and it was a high altitude and the village had created many medal winning long distance runners, it
was remarkable and an example of how many of us are products of our environment.
many black people generally do have more fast twitching muscle fibres it makes them more explosive, and overall they have much better arses bigger
more muscular which is beneficial to something like the 100 metres. its weird as white people generally have better calf muscle development (probably
noticed more by budding bodybuilders). There only subtle differences and are quite sweeping as stereotypes usually are, the truth is jordon was the
best because he practised and worked damn hard both mentally and physically its the same with any sports person at the top of their game i think to
bring race into it demeans their achievement a little.
Like someone earlier said intelligence is an individual thing, no race is more intelligent than the next, some people take pleasure in building
motorbikes others in arithmatic, what ever you focus your mind on and practise at you will improve upon and that goes for almost anything.
One of the reasons i love football (soccer) is that it truly is a world sport of all nations and races, a bit like science it crosses all bounderies
so we can all share in something great and hopefully something honest.
