Been investigating the quotes and some of them are hilarious.
[quote] Rob is one of the most extraordinary athletes I have ever measured, and his running form is exquisite
DANIEL E. LIEBERMAN -Professor of Biological Sciences, Harvard University
Also there is no record of many of these quotes on the internet so hmmmmmmmmm[/quote]

I emailed Professor Lieberman this morning, told him about the thread, and asked him if he had been quoted correctly. He replied as follows (and he has given me permission to quote him here):

"That is an accurate quote from me (and yes Rob really does have excellent running form), given to a journalist in the UK who I recall was writing an article about Rob. I personally measured Rob’s biomechanics twice: once in California at the beginning of the Race Across the USA, and then a second time in DC after he finished. I did not accompany the runners between the two coasts, but I did ask someone to take high speed videos of the runners (including Rob) about halfway through the race when they were in Texas."
