There are 15 balck people in top16 in Berlin this time,and the only non-balack one is from Japan.Does this have something to do with gene?

Re: Why black people are so talented in 100m run?

I remember doing this back in sport science, like 9 years ago. The reason is because blacks have a higher red blood cell count then whites, and if I remember rightly, it gives a better oxygen rate. Also I think there's something to do with a greater muscle percentage, and that they have longer legs, and shorter upper bodies then whites, which sees blacks excel in sprinting and the likes, but not so much in swimming. I also think that whites have a smaller achilles tendon, which is a major cause for this

And all the best for Elena

Sometimes I agree with you; sometimes I dont. That said, you do make me laugh. If you were American you'd most definitely be from either New York or Jersey. Oh this isn't out of the blue: I made my own little Lin Lin joke on another thread.

Lin Lin, I come in peace. I swear! :

Benji Schwimmer is gay. Do the sister wives know?!
