He is smooth, but noticed he runs like he is turning left, shoulders lean left. Did he do a lot of track running early on?
Yes he did, but I noticed it as well - his right hand rises above his nipple in his arm swing, but his left hand never gets higher than his nipple.
And he has that very characteristic Ryan Hall low-arm carriage, which always looks weird to me.
I noticed this a bit with Alyson Felix as well - not exactly symmetric between right and left sides. For her, I assume it's from all the 200m/400m curve running, but Hall's is tougher to explain, what with all the road training he's undoubtedly done the past 10 years.
Maybe it's a leg-length discrepancy creeping into their form?
