Sebastian Coe

I came across this video on youtube.com about Sebastian Coe. I remember watching him as a kid, and being really impressed at how he could just blow away the field in the last 400m of a race. The only other runner I have seen since who is consistently able to do anything similar, is Kenenisa Bekele (quite possibly the greatest distance runner of all time).

This is an excellent documentary about a humble and truly magnificent runner. What impressed me most, however, was just how remarkable Seb Coe’s running form was. Totally relaxed and fluid, it is a thing of grace and beauty. Interestingly, Bekele’s form is very similar.
