maybe a little weaker than that since the steeples are lower than the men's
They are proportional wrote:
The hurdles are proportional to women's strength and height.
Really?, so who was it exactly that figured out this magical ratio?
Just happened to be a perfect 6"...keep thinking that.
Galkina 5'9" Coburn 5'8"
Shaheen 5'9" Kipruto 5'9" Koech 5'7"
Hurdles are much easier for women at 30". They should be at least 33"
Men are much stronger and faster than women, regardless of height.
Men's high jump: 2.45 meters
Women's high jump: 2.09 meters ... difference 1.17225 ... 36" / 1.172 = 30.7"
This is not even including the average inseam height difference between women and men,
which greatly affects the height that can be cleared, and which should be included for a more accurate comparison.
In the meantime, 30" is a good compromise, but by no means is this height any easier for women than is 36" for men.
