THE FINISHING TIME OF 26-YEAR-OLD ETHIOPIAN GUYE ADOLA AT THE BERLIN MARATHON…IN HIS FIRST EVER 26.2-MILE RACE.

NEWS

LEADING LADY

Got an ultramarathon in the pipeline? Expect to face stiff competition from the female side of the Theld. A recent study(1) – in which a group of men and women were asked to Thex their feet against a series of sensors, as quickly as they could 200 times – suggests women have far greater muscle endurance than men. The speed, power and torque – rotational force – of their movements, and electrical activity of their muscles, was recorded. The results showed men were faster and more powerful at first, but became more exhausted much faster than the women. The study author, Professor Brian Dalton, said, “We’ve known for some time that women are less fatigable than men during isometric muscle tests – static exercises where joints don’t move, such as holding a weight – but we wanted to find out if that’s true during more dynamic and practical everyday movements. And the answer is pretty definitive: women can outlast men by a wide margin.” The results of such a small study can’t be taken as fact, but it ties in with a study(2) of 1,815,091 marathon results, involving 131 marathons from 2008 to 2014, that revealed women – despite having a finishing time, on average, 20 minutes slower than men – are 18.61% better at maintaining their pace.
