The other day on one of my email lists I got into a bit of a debate on the topic of typical body types of various races and the probable effects on swimming biomechanics. Which, of course, got me flamed. Okay, I like controversy as much as the next person, it was not altogether unexpected.
Want to get really offended? Check out what Rush Limbaugh has to say on the topic. (Disclaimer: I loathe him.).
That said, I'll be watching the next season of Survivor (Cook Islands) with interest, when they pit tribes of four different races against each other. (Starts Thursday September 14th).
Plus the Amazing Race, and naturally I'll be cheering for Ironman (and amputee) Sarah Reinertson. (Starts Sunday September 17th).
From my bike trainer, of course.
