What does finger length say about athletic ability? An experiment with six athletes: all 5000 meters specialists… the outcome is simply astonishing.
Professor John T. Manning explains:
“… What I should be able to do is look at the differences between the ring finger and index finger, and on that basis rank these runners: first, second, third, fourth and so on. In theory that should work.”
Comment voice explains:
“In practice we’re providing professor Manning with photocopies of the athletes hands. And in return he’s risking his reputation by providing us with the results of a race that has yet to be run.”
You can take a look at the outcome of this remarkable experiment from the BBC’s “Secret of the Sexes” – surely you will enjoy it, probably you will remember the outcome easily!!!
