Georgia Institute of Technology Great Speed but Little Stamina Article Discussion
I’m working on a humanities question and need guidance to help me understand better.
In his article “Great speed but little stamina….” David Wiggins (1989) explores the history of race and racial science in twentieth century sport and shows how colonization and slavery were instrumental to the creation of racial hierarchies. Wiggins provides examples throughout the text that show how the sport has served as a means of resistance and allowed athletes and sport scientists to challenge biological concepts of race and racial hierarchies. Pick two examples Wiggins writes about and explain their significance.
