Mo farah and the art of SMOOTH acceleration

17 Aug

Having seen Mo run the 5k and 10k finals of both the worlds and the Olympics, I feel the biggest difference between Mo and the east Africans is his lucid strides even at the peak of acceleration. I have seen that kind rhythm mostly in Haile and Bekele. East Africans will need to produce a runner who can kick in better in the last 600m but most importantly, have a smoother stride.
