Sodium-potassium mix is more important than whether you are getting your intake/protein from a non-veg source or a veg source. Rather as Hindus have been veg for 1000s of years, they are better suited for a veg diet. While Chinese are more suited for eating dogs and cats.I have observed that on a non Veg diet u will have better explosive strength but on veg more tenacity.
Eating too much junk food (high sodium) can lower your stamina and is a common cause for obesity.

As far as Olympics are concerned, there is little correlation to race or diet.
For example, Nigeria (nation with biggest African population) has won less medals than India so far. While if you look at USA medal tally, many and large number of them are black.

It's all about how much money you are willing to throw on Olympics training camps.
