"You can't just get up and eat tuber crops like yam and go and run. What is happening is it is a staple diet, so our young people who are using these staple crops are being exposed to these 'anabolic steroids' from very early and Jamaica is the only country with organised programmes from infancy; so you are putting up a stress and demand on these muscle groups which is being further pushed by these 'anabolic steroids' they are going to have an advantage and they are going to grow with that and by the time they are hitting the late teens you should be seeing some responsive muscle mass," explained Prof Morrison.
Jimson, my e-mail sent earlier today agrees with you and Brandon that Borzov was the greatest “made” sprinter ever. His training regimen is one example, and perhaps drugs are another [“nothing surprises”], but his mechanics were perhaps the most perfect ever. I recall one of those rolled strips of frames I saw in the ’70s that showed him lifting his hands at the gun. Two physics reasons this makes sense: 1. by Newton’s third law, raising hands lowers body more than just gravity alone; 2. the consequent motion of the hands forward and back are achieved with a shorter radius of rotation, thus making the entire motion of lift and arm drive just as fast and more effective than the “usual” motion. I’ve had success teaching this as a coach, but perhaps only because of a “Dumbo’s feather” mental factor. Thus I asked you whether you had any frames that could confirm or deny my recollections. Thanks.
