HSS 409: Kinesiology
Distance run times (DRT) well known to decrease with age and weight
But…how much due to age and weight alone?
A1= Athenas 145-159lbs
A2 = Athenas 160-179lbs
A3 = Athenas 180lbs +
C1 = Clydesdales 185-199lbs
C2 = Clydesdales 200-224lbs
C3 = Clydesdales 225-249lbs
Y = Youth (Under 29 years)
T = Thirty something (30-39 years)

Cycling: lighter cyclists have advantage climbing but heavier are faster in flat time trials (quantified by Swain 94)
(Jackson 95, 96)
5K run speed = 84.3(VO2max1.01BW-1.03)
