Moses Mosop (Kenya) Running technique / Looptechniek

Published by Posecoach Nederland Jacky Ledeboer,
Moses Mosop 1985 is one of the fastest runners on the marathon. In 2011 he finished Boston in 2.03.06 sprinting up together with Geoffrey Mutai who became first in a WR. He owns the WR on 30K (1.26.47). In this same race he ran a WR on 25K.
In this marathon in Rotterdam (2012) Moses didn’t run his best race. He finished third in 2.05.02. The video footage is taken at the last quarter of the race (wasn’t able to get a good shot of him earlier in the race). Although I believe he’s not showing the best of his running (he would be better of landing half a foot length closer under the hip), it is still a very good watch! Mosop was one of the three Kenyan athletes selected for the coming up Olympic games in London, but unfortunately had to gave up his place because of an achilles injury. Perhaps he trained too hard and too much and took to little time to recover. He’s said to be a real training beast which becomes clear in this short documentary made before the Rotterdam marathon;
