That was a pretty silly statement. The guy set a record that still hasn’t been broken, so I think his build worked just fine for him.
If you knew anything about competitive sprinting, or if you even competed in sprinting events, you would understand my statement a little better.
Ben was NOT built for sprinting. He had a short stride, short legs and was quite stocky for a sprinter during his time. The fact that he eventually became the fastest man in the entire world only attests to his dedicated training. The man squatted 600 lbs at what, 170ish?[/quote]
Short stride? I dunno about that…
