    Largest ever biomechanics research project in athletics to be undertaken at IAAF World Championships London 2017 (https://www.iaaf.org/competitions/iaaf-world-championships/news/london-2017-biomechanics-project)

    Results should be interesting... "Key initial data will be made available at the IAAF World Coaches Conference on the mornings of 7, 8, 9 and 10 August." Let's hope they are also published/revealed to outside mediums.

    It will be interesting to see if elite sprinters have very similar metrics, or if different patterns can produce elite sprinter speeds in different people.

    The 2017 IAAF World Athletic Championships have started. No viewing on Australian T.V - we seem to be more concerned about men kicking &/or hitting a ball around the joint (of which very few other countries care about)... than watching the best male & female athletes from various nations across various disciplines compete on the world stage! :mad:

    Anyway, it can be seen on Eurosport Australia (which I don't have)... so I suppose it's YouTube catch-up for me :confused:.

    Speaking of Eurosport...
    ... recently came across this video from Eurosport - the analysis of Bolt & Gay during the 100m world record...



    Let's see how the Leeds Beckett University biomechanics research project's data (analysis) compare (with regard to the 100m). Besides not doing assessment on the middle distance events (either of the 800, 1500 or 5000m)... I was a wee bit confused why they wouldn't be assessing the walk events... particularly those foot strike patterns :rolleyes:. Anyway, their website is here: http://www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/news/0717-biomechanics-research-project/
    ... so we might see some data pop up there or on the IAAF website when it comes to light.

    Almaz Ayana (Ethiopia) "decimated" the field in the woman's 10 000m world championships... nearly lapping every runner in the field. Almaz ran the 2nd half 5000m in 14:24. Great athlete, great performance & great mover...



    It will be interesting to see her stats/data compared to others in the field with this biomechanics research project.

    Here is the video footage of the 2017 IAAF World Coaches Conference - Biomechanics. I can only find Day 2 (this one)... & Day 2 - Part 2. It seems Day 1 hasn't been uploaded (which sounded interesting as they discussed contact times & stride lengths of the top 10 000m runners).

    I haven't had the chance the view them yet... but here is Day 2...
