This was posted a few days ago on the Daily News of O.W.S. – it’s the finish of the Men’s 10K U.S. National Championship last weekend in Long Beach.
This is why these guys train so hard – to be at this level, you need not only endurance but also speed. After 9,500m at a pace most people can’t hold for 100m, it all comes down to a sprint. The dude nearest the camera (Chip Peterson) is using an 8-beat kick! Simply… awesome.
