Study identifies skeletal differences between sprinters and non-sprinters

Pennsylvania State University researchers found that spinters have longer bones in their forefeet and less leverage in their Achilles tendons compared to non-sprinters. According to the researchers, the findings could help determine which athletes would make good sprinters and also aid those with a lack of mobility, such as adults or children with cerebral palsy.
