I mean polynesians like tongans, samoans, fijians etc you no people like jonah lomu and israel folau
or
african americans, all those NFL players and stuff. This what I just read below. It got me thinking.

"Polynesians are having an enormous impact on sport in New Zealand. A new theory suggests their genes make them more muscular, strong and potentially better sportspeople.

Scientific research is uncovering explanations over and above Polynesian people’s obvious assets: natural muscularity, hand to eye co-ordination and sense of rhythm.

At Otago University’s Anatomy Department, Professor Phillip Houghton has for 10 years been studying Polynesian People’s evolution, the subject of a book he published in October, People of the Great Ocean.

Houghton’s theory is that their muscle comes from their ancestors enduring extremely cold temperatures while exploring and settling the Pacific hundreds of years ago. Today’s Polynesians have inherited their body types from those early navigators.

“The Pacific can actually be a very cold place, especially for people who’re exploring it at sea with Neolithic technology and little protection from the cold winds and wet weather,” says Houghton.

“We believe Polynesian and Fijian people survived these conditions by evolving quite quickly into being big muscular people. The reason for this is the bigger you are and the more muscle you have, the more heat you can generate.”

“This type of muscle build up is typical of people from cold climates. Scandinavians are tall and muscular and Inuit Indians (Eskimos) are muscular though not necessarily tall. However, the body type normally associated with people from the tropics is small, or if they are tall they tend to be thin.”

“These people have a small body weight with little muscle content and plenty of surface area from which heat can easily be lost. This is typical of Australian aborigines, Africans and people from the tropical parts of Asia.”

Houghton believes only the strongest of the early Polynesian seafarers survived. Once they reached an island many stayed while the strongest carried on to other islands. The breeding population became big and remained big.”

But just as the evolutionary pressure was to become more muscular to survive the cold, the type of muscle fibre these early Polynesians built up is believed to have been fast twitch muscle fibres.

Although most skeletal muscles are a mixture of slow twitch and fast twitch muscle fibres, Houghton says Polynesians have a predominance of fast twitch muscle fibres.

These are anaerobic, needing little oxygen to metabolise, enabling people to indulge in short bursts of energy and rest while the body reoxygenates. This is particularly suitable for sprinting, netball, rugby, weightlifting and boxing.

Houghton says their fast twitch muscle fibre makeup was another key factor in the ancient Polynesians’ survival."

Blacks are much more athletics. Its fact. Black africans can build muscle naturally faster than any other race. You think polynesians have fast twitch muscles? Its nothing compared to blacks. Look at the top 10 100m record times. Africans tend to be taller aswell, accounting for the best baskestball players in the world. Yes polynesians are big and good at rugby but africans are the dominant race when it comes to physical feats which there are far too many to list

Lmao mate Fijians yes are not Polynesian but melenesian .and blacks are more athletic and are very power full.samoans and Tongans on average are shorter and more round than blacks and Fijians.but are power full and do have very tall people as well with most being of Fijian descendants hence being taller not to say their aren't tall polys without Fijian blood.blacks and Fijians have size speed flair athletic ability where they can play a lot of sport and are very good at.polys just play rugby rugby league and NFL but are not very useful at it.hence why they don't play any of the athletic positions in NFL.being power full is nothing every race as power full people lol we islandersact like we are the only warriors on earth when we aain't even a little dot when it comes to be warriors compared to other races.lol every race has their athletic power full people.its just blacks and Fijians also other melenesians have more of these people as you can see with sports outside rugby and league .they play soccer basketball volley ball athletics etc south pacific games new cal Fiji and PNG with also tahiti dominate.than blacks dominate basket ball NFL athletics soccer etc so all in all blacks and melenesians are more athletic and faster and Polynesians like Samoans and Tongans only compete with these guys in the power stand point.being Fijian and Samoan I know both sides.but hey it doesn't really matter because end of out island brothers are being successful at what ever they do and natural talent only get you so far.big ups to all the island people as we'll as our black brothers.

Hha mate the fijian league team have the same size players as samoa except for masoe who is a cousin of mine.the fijian rugby team is bigger than Samoa but that doesn't really matter .yea polys on the map because they had to move to nz aus and nz coz thea ain't nothing in the islands.fijians don't play nfl yet.but thea hve been fijians or halfcasts that hve playd nfl nba but not to many .as a country they don't really care about nfl and nba.and pro soccer in europe.hha Tim Cahill ain't full samoan so what one samoan soccer player that's it when samoa lose 15 - 0 to fiji and that.you say 3 white Boiz in the fiji league team um so they are fijian from thea mothers side .jus like samoa using half samoans qtr samoans so what your fijian or samoan no matter how much blood you have .am I right brother .its not about who is better these threads a soo stupid .congrats too polys being known in the states and that.melas haven't had the chance too play nfl and all that.we can argue about stats and fiji will be better than samoa then samoa will be better tonga and so on.if it wasn't for the migration of samoans and Tongans to the states nz and aus wea wud they be.so I thank them for giving the islanders the opportunity to lay down our talents and enhance them with the training we have received .so brother just be thankfull we all open doors for each other when we are successful .

Hha and if it wasn't for a Fijian to first play league in the 60s islanders would have not been playing.same in soccer first islander was a Fijian to go to Rochdale.see island people opening doors for the rest jus like samoans are doing in the nfl for us.cant say oh samoans more powerful than them Tongans more powerful than then these guys ha coz strength sport polys ain't dominating shit lol fijians are faster than polys but ha we getting gasd in running sport by others.the all blacks could chuck all the islanders out and still be number one in the world.aint because we islanders we are good.we are in the team coz we have worked hard on the talent we have and become the best in a position.got nothing to do with being poly or mela.

Lol....all the article did was took all the credentials said about Blacks and applied it to Polynesians. Wow man.....the level and hate, racism and jealousy of White people is astounding!

Eye and hand coordination? Lmao! Blacks OWN that label for centuries after centuries and still do to this day.

All one need to do is put a Polynesian in the NBA or NFL and let them compete with our Black sons. The result will be as CLEAR AS DAY.

Lol@ "the type of muscles is typical of people of colder climates."

Hahahahahahah....whew!

First, they used to say those muscles was from from being in the jungle, and survival of the fitness. Then they used to say it was due to Blacks being slaves out there in field that hardened their muscles from standing up, escaping, running from cops and all the stereotyping, racial nonsense.

They will never accept the scientific results ALREADY PROVEN BY THEIR RECESSIVE, RACIST, WHITE MAN that Blacks are Modern Humans; born with Dominant Genes and SUPERIOR than ALL NATIONALITY.......INCLUDING POLYNESIANS.

Put a Polynesian up against Ali, Foreman, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Sonny Liston, evander holyfield, in the boxing ring during any of these fighters eras and watch your Polynesian take a powerful brutal beating. Black's do not lack size, look no further than 75% of the NFL or NBA. Name one Samoan larger than shaq. Blacks win against any race in athleticism hands down. Original humans are always biological superior to carbon copies.
