Here we examine Emil Zatopek's technique and particularly his forefoot landing. As you can see, as soon as he lands his thigh muscles tense for one frame. On the hand, the other competitors' thigh muscles stay contracted for more than 4 frames. This directly shows the unnecessary muscle exertion during active landing with no benefit.
