We 100% Agree

With all due respect to @kipchogeeliud as he is clearly the greatest marathoner of all-time irregardless of the shoes he is in, when a shoe company puts multiple carbon fiber plates in a shoe with cushion between the plates it is no longer a shoe, it’s a spring, and a clear mechanical advantage to anyone not in those shoes. I’m just hoping @iaaf_athletics makes sure the upcoming Olympics and @wmmajors are fair playing fields for athletes of all brands.
Letsrun.com 100% agrees with Ryan Hall. We’ve been saying for months the IAAF shoe rules make no sense / need to be enforced. On this week’s podcast, we even discussed if the 2016 Olympic Marathon men’s marathon results should be invalidated. The top men’s 3 runners were wearing the unreleased Vaporflys while 4th and 5th were not. If a runner was given a secret pill that no one else had and it gave them a minute-plus advantage, people would rightly want them DQed. That is not that different, and now it’s the wild, wild West in regards to shoes.
