Footstrike Analysis of Elite Runners

....from The Science of Sport

If you are currently a heel striker, should you convert to a mid or forefoot striker? This study from Japan gives some insight into how elite runners do it- the results are not what you might think!

The vast majority (75%) of the elite runners land on the heel

About 1 in four (24%) runners landed on the mid-foot

Only 4 out of 283 runners landed on the forefoot
