Excerpt from Youth and Scientific Innovation: The Role of Young Scientists in the Development of a New Field
When the octogenarian Johnny Kelley running in his sixty-first Boston Marathon crossed the finish line, those who witnessed the feat looked on with a mixture of astoni... shment and admiration. There is a general belief that, within the population as a whole, athletic ability deteriorates with age. Few would consider Kelley - not to mention the other contestants in the masters' division - as evidence to the contrary, even though most people less than half his age could not run even the first leg of the twenty - six mile race. The remarkable Kelley notwithstanding, that athletic contests favour youth is a widely held assumption that is hardly, if ever, seriously questioned.
