What amazes me more is that Samoa breeds athletes. Even for their size, they are good.
I remember watching a documentary that Samoan High Schoolers play football with crappy equipment and still play the roughest games. The NFL knows this and wants some of those athletes in their league. Big guys with speed and athletic ability is on the rise.
*ahem*Tana Umaga. Thats one thing I like about them, they can make do with what they have, and exceed all expectations.
Besides, just because someone is deemed "overweight", doesn't mean that they are not athletic, out of shape, etc.
There are plenty of people who are considered "overweight", but are in much better health than people who have a "good BMI"
