I was wondering if Anakin Skywalker really is the only human who can race pods.. I find it hard to believe considering the sheer number of populated worlds. Is there any mention of any other human, Force-Sensitive or not, who can race pods? I would be okay with a Legends answer..
According to the novelisation of Revenge of the Sith he wasn't the only human to ever start a race, but he was certainly the only human to successfully complete one. Note that over two-thirds of the racers in Anakin's race crashed and several died.
Notably, this section of the book is told from the perspective of the omniscient narrator rather than Anakin's own limited view.
