Why is it most white kids run distance? Who tell athletes what to run or do? Just read the messages on this, you all seem surprised that a white kid sprints. It has nothing to do with race, it never did. Race is always the butt of the jokes, and the reason why white kids dont sprint, but rather go jog in a mile race with their friends because the coach determines the black kids are the bruts and can handle anything.
Be honest with yourself, when Jamaican had half miler's no one paid attention to them, but when Coach cook at Mason was training them and had a 75% black 4x800 relay at Penn relays winning, ppl thought that was strange. Wake up people.
For example Maslak is from a country where there are almost no blacks so this theory doesn't apply there. All kids who join a T&F club there want to do sprints or jumps. That's why we have Pavel Maslak or Zuzana Hejnova but the fastest 10Ker runs 29:00. (and those who don't have talent for sprints move to javelin or decathlon, that's why we have Vitezslav Vesely and Barbora Spotakova)
