See the footstrikes of all elite 10K runners at the Track Trials: #Eugene2012 #runnerds

It's always cool when highly theoretical debates get a nice dose of practical reality. So if you're interested in footstrike (should runners land on their toes? heel? midfoot?), check out this awesome data collected by BYU biomechanist Iain Hunter . Using high-speed video, he has assembled still images showing the footstrike for every entrant in the U.S. Olympic Trials 10,000-meter races (men's data here ; women's data here ). Here's a tiny snippet (the top three men) to whet your appetite: First thing you'll notice when you look at the whole dataset: the huge variety of different footstrikes. Very neat data, and it'll be interesting to see what Dr. Hunter does with it. (And thanks to Steve Magness for the link!)
