SPRINT RESEARCH (2009)

Earlier this year research on the hands of sprinters pointed out that a long ring finger (low 2D:4D ratio) relates to a fast sprint – new photos indicate: both male sprinters AND female sprinters from Jamaica have the long ring finger!

BERLIN 2009 RESULTS OF JAMAICAN SPRINT-TEAM SO FAR:

• 2x Golden medal
(Usain Bolt – 100m sprint men, Shelly-Ann Fraser – 100m sprint women);
• 1x Silver medal
(Kerron Stewart – 100m sprint women);

NEW SPRINT RESEARCH (2009)

British researchers have found that finger length might be a key factor in Bold’s world records at both the 100m and 200m. For, Jamaicans are known for having a low ‘2D:4D digit ratio’.

The British ‘finger professor’ John T. Manning has recently presented new research which indicates that men who have a relatively long ring finger run faster! The research was done on 241 young male sprinters at a sports talent-spotting competition in Qatar.

JAMAICANS HAVE THE LONG RING FINGER!

Manning reported in his book ‘Digit Ratio’ (2002) that the average 2D:4D digit ratio in Jamaican people is among the lowest of the various populations in the world (a finding which was confirmed in a 2004 study). This might implicate that Usain Bolt’s digit ratio is actually not very low at all … in the perspective of the fact that he is a Jamaican man! The photo below illustrates that Asafa Powell, former world record holder & the second most famous sprinter from Jamaica, has the long ring finger as well!

While Leonid Stadnyk from Ukraïne (unofficially the largest man on earth) has the world’s LARGEST hand, Usain Bolt is the fastest man ever and so he is: the World’s fastest hand!
