A fantastic race, with some great athletes and beautiful running. Regarding technique Bekele (the winner) deserves most credits.
When comparing his style to Tadese's (the smaller runner in the blue shirt) a few things can be be noticed;
- A more solid and upright torso (tall from the waist)
- Leaning a little less
- Pace frequency a little less, except for the last round when he increases his lean and picks up a cadence of 240spm
- The recovery foot "pings" up higher, and the lower leg folds closer behind the upper leg
- The lower leg extends more in front during the swingphase
- The swingleg recovers more quick
- His landing is closer under the body and more on the ball of foot
- Spending less time on the ground (check his foot at take off in the stills, it leaves the ground more quick)
- He needs less time to cover 10 km
This all makes him a more efficient runner which makes him a great champion!!
