i just done an assignment on race in sport and im just wondering if u guys have any opinions on all this stuff.
i think its all a load of crap, i basically found out on some articles that blacks are more fast twitch dominant and have higher testosterone making them dominate sprinting and power events.
so how come they dont dominate oly lifting, gymnastics, shot put etc?
articles also said black people are less inteligent and oriental are most intelligant and whites in the middle.they came up with this because of the IQ but this is not the only and best way for testing intelligance.
it also said white people and oriental people wont have as high as verticle jumps, and orientals are slow twitch dominant and will have the worst verticles. those chinese oly lifters dont look st dominant and their verticals aint small either.
i think its all down to culture and individuality, i hate this whole race thing, it could kind of influnce people not to participate in sport for example a white person may not bother with sprinting if he is good at it because people say you have to be black.
