Those are some powerhouse names in exercise science, but I have to say WTF, think before you speak to a reporter.
I actually thought the same exact thing. Weyand in particular has stated some things that have been very curious in the last year. In a recent news article he comes right out and says that humans are capable of running as fast as cheetahs because we are made up of the same muscles and tendons (i.e. 6 seconds for 100m). I suppose it could have been taken out of context but it sure didn’t seem like it. On top of that, he was also one of the lead researchers who ‘proved’ that Oscar Pistorious’ blades didn’t give him an advantage over his able-bodied counterparts.
