But I think if the Chinese were to recruit all  those extremely tall Chinese like Yao Ming, and give them intensive training now, indeed very soon Chinese will also dominate in all Tract and field events, don't you all agree?

Not afraid of losing anything. There is NO chance...WHen was the last time that someone not of west african heritage even medalled in the 100M?




Just a guess, I believe it was Valeri Borzov (USSR) - Munich 1972

Uni,

Yes, they trained their entire lives and much harder than most people ever would consider. However, the deal is this: if you take people from different racial groups and train them all just as hard, some groups come out on top in some sports and others in others. Why? Differences in body type. East Asians will do well in sports where having small, ectomorphic shapes is an advantage because they tend not just to have them, but to be more extremely so than others. And so on.

"Just a guess, I believe it was Valeri Borzov (USSR) - Munich 1972"

That sounds familiar.
Of course this all goes back into the whole East German female swimmer thing. The whole question, "why were the only non west-african originated people (male or female) to do well in the 100m-200m all from DDR and USSR??
The answers came when the wall came down in 1989.
