In addition, approximately half of all of the male athletes in the world who have ever run the 10K in less than 27 minutes hail from Kenya. When they’re allowed to enter freely, Kenyan athletes dominate road races around the world.

And yet, until now the eating habits of the top-level Kenyan runners haven’t been examined in a westernized scientific way, even though the Kenyans’ nutritional practices must assuredly represent a partial reason for their running success.

The person who argues that “If only the Kenyans would eat differently, they could run much faster,” would be on flimsy ground.
