Rachael Irving takes the complex topics of African genotypes, slave populations genetically shifted towards speed, and an impossibly rich crop of Olympians, then weaves them into a narrative to explain the long-standing Jamaican sprinting phenomenon.
Using compelling findings from her genetic research and supporting illustrations, Olympic DNA: Birth of the Fastest Humans not only shows how athletic phenotypes concentrate and replicate themselves in Africa and the Americas but also how this distribution of human speed got that way in the first place. pdf
