Olympic Marathon

Well as expected an African won the marathon, and in record time. So Blacks have taken all the titles but there seems to be a window of opportunity in the middle distances of 800m and 1500m where New Zealander Nick Willis got bronze for coming third. Maybe it doesn't help as he got assistance from on high. The winner was not from Africa but was Rashid Ramzi from Bahrain. The distance is just too far for the muscled West African descendants in the US and Jamaica with a preponderance of fast twitch muscle fibres and too short for the East Africans from the highlands of Kenya and Ethiopia.
