Something Strange in Usain Bolt’s Stride - The New York Times

"Generally there are small differences between the right and left leg, but I think they are normally about 1, 2, 3 percent," Mero said in a telephone interview. "This sounds a little bigger." Given the scoliosis and discrepancy in the length of Bolt's legs, Mero said, the sprinter's stride appeared optimal for him.

I'd say his stride length and overall speed mechanics is within normal range. And with his world record time in the 100 meter dash, I'd definitely say it's something he's adapted to. 07-24-2017 7:19pm
