Topic - what can runners learn from cyclists?

Rog Wilko on 19 Aug 2013
Idling away yesterday afternoon watching the athletics in Moscow I was struck by the contrast between the approach of runners and that of cyclists to minimising wind resistance. Several of the GB women's sprint relay team had big or floppy hair. One had an Afro style which was nearly as wide as her shoulders. When races are won and lost by margins of hundredths of seconds, should they not take a leaf out of the cyclists book? after all, sprinters are doing about 20 MPH - doing similar speeds (admittedly for much longer) to a bog standard Saturday afternoon time trial list who will have a crouch position, triathlon bars, skin suit and tear drop helmet.
