The Survival of the Fastest

A fascinating documentary narrated by the Gold Winning Olympiad Michael Johnson. He focuses on an extremely sensitive issue. He asks the question – to what extent did slavery cause the contemporary athletic prowess of Afro-Caribbean and African-american athletes?

A fantastic case of correlation or causation. Did the brutal experience of slavery actually cause a group of people to develop and refine physical power and athletic performance …. or is this just coincidence? What do you think? What of Johnson’s research methods – are they valid?
