Nah, few sports champions have actual positive mutations. David Epstein's "The Sports Gene" had one example: some Finnish X-country skier.

Champs tend to have fewer negative mutations. E.g., Michael Jordan was more an epitome of West African Nature & North Carolina BBall Nurture twitter.com/planetmarshall/sta …

That is indeed possible. The Chinese Communist Party would love to have a Chinese man win the Olympic 100m dash.

But, as Damon Runyan said: "The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but that is the way to bet." twitter.com/RCownie/status/119 …

Right. White guy won 100m dash in boycotted 1980 Olympics. Beginning with 1984, however, not just all 9 gold medalists, but all 72 finalists in men's 100m Olympic race for the World's Fastest Man have been at least half-Sub-Saharan.

72 out of 72. twitter.com/RCownie/status/119 …

@Steve_Sailer Take a look at my thread here, if you will, to address this athletics issue. People who play/view American basketball and football understand that this is crystal clear. These “scholars” look deranged; they can’t trust what their eyes are screaming at them.

I love when people explain that racial differences in genetics can't possibly influence sports ability because...and there Go-To Example is always...There were a lot of Jewish professional basketball players in 1935!

Of course, nobody dunked and few even tried a jump shot. twitter.com/Timothy__Rooney/st …

Right. It's hard to come up with a 100% Social Constructionist explanation for why black NFL QBs are better at running than white NFL QBs; or why whites play Safety and Linebacker in the NFL but almost never Cornerback; or why track teams have blacks running 100m and whites 800m. twitter.com/Timothy__Rooney/st …

How about Ashkenazi dominance at winning almost 1/4th of hard science Nobel Prizes (out of 0.2% of world's population) and making up 1/3rd of the Forbes 400 (out of 2% of US population)? @ent3c

Nature or Nurture?

Realistically, almost certainly both.

I actually have looked at the data for Olympic running. There was much more genetic diversity in Bad Old Days of mid-20th Century. Beginning in 1960s and accelerating after collapse of East German doping efforts in 1989, there has been increasing genetic stratification.

Weird that running, a thing that all humans can do and which almost all humans do as children, is so culturally/economically/socially/nutritionally associated with one group of people who, of course, have no genetic proximity to one another.
