Two of my students went down to Boston on Monday and filmed a good chunk of the marathon for me in slow motion. Here’s a video to whet your appetite – Ryan Hall is most definitely a midfoot striker, and what a thing of beauty that stride is! This video was shot at 300 frames/second with a Casio Exilim EX-F1 digital camera (true slow motion).
And here’s the same video slowed down even more:
