    The conclusions that are drawn from black athletes dominating the 100m final go a long way to explaining attitudes in wider society, argues Matthew Syed.

    The 100m final at the World Athletics Championships this weekend will be won by a black athlete.

    Every winner of the 100m since the inaugural event in 1983 has been black, as has every finalist from the last 10 championships with the solitary exception of Matic Osovnikar of Slovakia, who finished seventh in 2007.

    Assuming that this success is driven by genes rather than environment, there is a rather obvious inference to make - black people are naturally better sprinters than white people. Indeed, it is an inference that seems obligatory, barring considerations of political correctness. Also does this assumption have wider reaching impact outside the sports world, as this BBC article will show.

    BBC News - Is it wrong to note 100m winners are always black?

    However there is another article that speaks of this calls it the African running phenomenon discounts the basis of genetic advantage as being the reason why blacks dominate these events. What are your thoughts.

    Blacks on average have a higher testosterone levels then other races, thus why the physical superiorty.

    Also why all the violence too.

    Bob Hayes once know as the fast man on earth did time for selling drugs, he was fast but not fast enough. What does that say and the great female sprinter did time as well if I remember. Genetics or environment?

    Noticing anything about race is "racist."

    actually most of your power lifting champions are European !! the only reason blacks are faster is because of the fast twitch muscles that allows them to run away from a threat .....IE... lions ,tigers,cops,and responsibility !!......you see whites are stronger because we need to stand up against danger !! blacks can run faster so they can run away from danger !!:eusa_whistle:

    its politically incorrect to notice the genetic success of black runners because it leaves the door open to notice the genetic failure of black academics

    Exactly.

    The thought of genetic differences in INTELLIGENCE is so freakin' scary to everyone that we can't be allowed to even think of genetic differences in PHYSICAL ABILITY.

    But it's a short trip, admittedly: how much sense does it make to admit there are physical differences, but absolutely no mental ones? We even admit DOGS have these differences, but no humans?
