Quote Of The Day
“Kipchoge’s record run was his fifth official marathon in the Vaporfly, but the first when fitness, course, and weather conditions combined to give him the opportunity to shatter the record. Maybe there are other runners who will follow Kipchoge into 2:01 or at least 2:02 territory when the stars line up for them, and in doing so demonstrate that his run in Berlin wasn’t as special as it appeared. After all, by the end of 2016, prior to the Vaporfly’s release, 31 men had run 2:04:59 or better. If the Vaporfly really alters performance by several percent, we should see someone threaten Kipchoge’s record soon. The tough question is whether we can afford to wait. If, in five years, a half-dozen men all wearing the Vaporfly have run 2:01, we’ll have our answer. But by then it may be too late to convince authorities to regulate shoe technology—if it’s not already.”
