Subjects were selected for nutritional normality by including only those within ±5% of Colombian norms of weight for age and weight for height,. There were no racially based differences in total V02 max (L/min), when Vb2 max was expressed in terms of body weight (ml/kg/min/or in the regression lines of V02 max (L/min) on body weight.
