In White men caN jump? Kind of. But they still can’t run. Sort of. it was covered whites do progressively worse in endurance events compared to blacks.

Jonathan Edwards Triple Jump

A white person hasn’t won the olympic 100 meters since 1980, and that win has a big asterisk next to it. It was in Moscow where 65 countries boycotted, significantly lessening the competition.
