Type-O atheletes seem to be stronger in sports, and such a paper was published in the United States this year.

Lippi G., et al., (2017), Influence of ABO blood group on sports performance.
Ann Transl Med. 2017 Jun;5(12):255. doi: 10.21037/atm.2017.04.33.

The ABO blood group status was also found to be independently associated with running time, with O blood type athletes performing better than those with non-O blood groups. Overall, age, weekly training and O blood group type explained 62.2% of the total variance of running performance (age, 41.6%; training regimen, 10.5%; ABO blood group, 10.1%).
The results of our study show that recreational athletes with O blood group have better endurance performance compared to those with non-O blood group types. This finding may provide additional support to the putative evolutionary advantages of carrying the O blood group.
