Slow Motion Video of Boston Marathon Winners

Note the foot plant of Boston Marathon winner Geoffrey Mutai and second place finisher Moses Mosop. No heel first striking for these guys!

Next, take a look at the women, in particular 2nd place finisher Desiree Devila. When I was watching the race live, I couldn't believe all the wasted upper body movement by the Kenyan women. Looking at this clip, it's clear that Devila, who I thought had beautiful upper body running form, is a very prominent heel striker. It makes me wonder if this isn't something she could work on changing.
