Coaches in HS do push white athletes away from the sprints especially if they have any athletic ability whatsoever. Seriously, it’s a disease. They push them to vertical jumps, hurdles, and distance events. The same coaches with black athletes push them to do horizontal jumps and sprints. It’s sickening, every year some white kid who blasted a great 100m time as an 8th grader or freshman isn’t participating because his coach decided it would be better to change events for him to realize his full potential. It’s not the kids telling me this, its the coaches when I ask where such and such is this year, their response is ALWAYS similar to this, He/She didn’t want to work hard enough to move back in distance when I decided they needed to become a 400, 800, or miler or we had a falling out in XC season which was his first because he wasn’t putting in the effort I think he should have.
I know that this exists but what I am asking you to see is that 1) this doesn’t happen to the same extent across the globe and 2) even if it did it would mean that even practically EVERY SINGLE Caucasian sprint hopeful would be pushed out of the event (otherwise how do we end up with no Caucasian sprint finalists and only 2 of the top 600 times ever run?)
Yeah lets, use the coldest climates as examples where they have 3 months maximum of track season unless they have an indoors. Lets also compare those times across the board. I recently looked at how the best Illinois sprinters in the largest class would compare against the 3A and 4A schools in Texas it wasn’t close. On the other hand, how come the state of Utah and Mormons in particular have been so successful in producing better Caucasian sprinters and speed/power athletes? Caucasians from more Northern Climates mature physically at slower rates, Mormons have to serve a two year mission, placing them in the collegiate systems at an older age. That’s a huge advantage and another description of how isolation works.
The utah kids still couldn’t hold there own against Dix, Demps, or Carter coming out of high school. Heck, even Combest was not the best HS 100m runner when he came out of high school and he’s widely thrown around like the would’ve-been great white hope.
How about Australia? They have a 22 million people with 92% being Caucasian and the country has a warmer climate yet the only 100m sprinter of note they’ve produced is only half Caucasian.
