Modern man a wimp, says anthropologist

Modern man

LONDON (Reuters) – Many prehistoric Australian aboriginals could have outrun world 100 and 200 meters record holder Usain Bolt in modern conditions.

Some Tutsi men in Rwanda exceeded the current world high jump record of 2.45 meters during initiation ceremonies in which they had to jump at least their own height to progress to manhood.

I believe I’ll go out for a long kick. Maybe dragging a log.

  1. But then we don’t know how fast Usain Bolt could run if he was being chased by a sabre-toothed tiger. Chances are he’d smash his own world records over 100 & 200, and then go on to smash the 400 and the long-jump!!

    BTW – loving the kickbike action – I’ve never heard of it before. I have often thought how great it would be to scoot around like my daughter does. If I ever get the time, this could be a whole new sport!

    Happy kicking.
