An easy assumption to make, I know.

But think again... just because black athletes tend to dominate sprinting and other running disciplines, it doesn't necessarily mean to say that black people in general have some genetic make up that makes them inherently faster than white people.

Read this interesting article on the BBC site:

It is not depending on the colour it's depend on the stamina.. and whose stamina is batter than other he/she is a faster than another one......

I''m guessing you didn't read the article.

Last time I looked, the 100m wasn't particularly an event known for its stamina requirements.

The statistics certainly look that way- I think Christophe Lemaitre of France is the only white man to run under 10 seconds.

I think what is interesting is that it is specifically American and Jamaican black sprinters that are so dominant- yes it might be to do with heritage and training facilities, but Michael Johnson did a really interesting program, where he argued that slavery created some kind of accelerated Darwinism- really worth checking out

I will presume that people have noticed there are no top class black swimmers,and no top class triathletes or cyclists......so where does stamina come in ???
