Interesting to see that the winner is quite a small chap. You'd expect the lighter lads to be good at the marathons, so it's interesting (a relief in fact) to see that they are good at the shorter distances as well. I'm an average height guy myself (say 5'9" or so) but I always feel the tall fellahs with the long legs and the long strides have a huge advantage over me when I'm in a race (I seem to take 3 steps for every 2 they take!). Maybe I'm not at such a big disadvantage after all.....? :-)

Taller runners also have to carry more weight. For endurance running, say 5k and above, most of the worlds best runners are quite small. The lower weight is probably more of an advantage than the longer stride.
