How One Kenyan Tribe Produces The World’s Best Runners – opinion

Kenyan Wilson Kipsang won the 2013 Berlin Marathon in 2 hours, 3 minutes and 23 seconds — an average of 4:42 per mile. It was easily the fastest marathon time ever recorded, an incredible feat for another powerful Kenyan runner.

But perhaps equally remarkable was that his fellow Kenyans also came in second, third, fourth and fifth place in this major international race. On the women’s side, Kenyans placed first, second and fourth.

    People who live at high altitudes have larger lungs to compensate for the thinner air. They do much better at lower altitudes than locals.

      Exactly !

      Sports is all very scientific today…hence
      ban of use of drugs in sport.
      Anabolic steroids ! Still legal ?

      How many pop stars take performance
      enhancing drugs today ? One too many.
      Most drugs should be illegal/banned but
      drug cartels ignore patents !
      Alcohol nicotine examples of legalised drugs.

      Go figure
