‘The World’s Fastest Hand’ – research points out: long ring finger relates to a fast sprint!

The 2008 olympics in Beijing pointed out that Jamaican sprinter Usain Bold has the world’s FASTEST hand… ever!

How come that Jamaican sprinters run so fast? John Manning’s new finger research points out that a long ring finger (low 2D:4D ratio) relates to a fast sprint – other research indicates: Jamaicans have the longest ring finger!

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!

Sprinters from Jamaica have the long ring finger.

Leonid Stadnyk has the largest living hand

In 2007 Leonid Stadnyk from Zhytomyr Oblast (Ukraïne) was recognized as the world’s tallest man on earth – his lenght was stated to be at: 2.59m (8 feet, 5 inches). But in 2008 Leonid Stadnyk refussed to be measured under the new Guinness World Records. Nevertheless, Leonid does appear to have the biggest palm on earth.

Leonid Stadnyk’s hand length measures 31cm. The present official world record holder Bao Xishun who measures 2.36m (a native of Inner Mongolia, China) – is said to have an arm length of 1.06m. So, it is very unlikely that Bao Xishun’s finger length exceeds Leonid’s finger length.

Despite the fact that Leonid Stadnik’s exact finger length (and digit ratio) is unknown, it is very likely that Leonid Stadnyk also has:
