Nike Zoom VaporFly 4% / sub-2h marathon / #fake-news
I wasn’t sure which title I should use... what do you think?
- Kipchoge is the best marathon runner in the world... regardless of his shoes!
- When marketing contaminates science
- * Zoom Vaporfly 4% ? #Maximum1% #PlaceboEffect #ShowMeTheEvidence
- 4% energetic cost = 3% time improvement = many runners should’ve already gone under 2h01!
- New marathon world record by the one and only Eliud Kipchoge !
- Marathon Under 2h00 #GoodIdea #NoCheating #Pleaseplayby-IAAF-rules
- CAD $330 / USD $250 / 250 Euros : Whaaaaattt??? ... for an actual production cost of Under $30 ?
- Do not let marketing influence your perceptions! That’s also valid for elite athletes!
- Every 100g of running shoe mass can decrease oxygen consumption by 0.7-1.0%... for the rest, beware of #fakemeds
- AdidasBoost, ZoomVaporFly4% or any other shoe with the same mass = similar performance (less than 0.5% difference)
