      While it seems to be taboo to talk about it, it is a question that has been burning in my mind.

      Do different ethnic groups have a genetical difference that makes them capable of different physical feats, or are any differences more cultural in nature?

      For example, in any running sport it appears to be better to be black, as most sprinting and marathon champions have been black.

      When it comes to strength, like in Strongman, we often see way more caucasian athletes taking the stage.

      Is this difference a genetic one that came to be because of different lifestyles across the centuries, or is it rather a cultural difference that comes to be because of different lifestyles today?
