“The ultimate Olympic outlier may be Usain Bolt, the 6-foot-5-inch sprinter who excels in a discipline where height was long thought to be a disadvantage. The reason: a quick start is essential, and unfolding a bigger frame can waste precious time in a race decided by hundredths of a second.
If Mr. Bolt had been born in the U.S. instead of Jamaica, he’d be catching passes in the National Football League right now. But he was born in a country where sprinting is king, and he has forced the track establishment to rethink what it takes to become the fastest man on earth.”
Slightly non-running-related for a running-related blog, I agree. However, it is ME-related, and seeing as I’m putting quite a lot of ME-related stuff on this blog, I figured I’d share. You know, it’s something different, and although 85% of my wardrobe is sportswear, it proves that I do occasionally wear clothes not made of drifit and lycra (not often though).
