First, there was the David Nilsson, who ran in the 2.10,08, in the Valencia Marathon, and, thus, deleted the out of the Kjell-Erik, Ståhls, the 36-year-old English record, (2.10,38). Then, Mustafa Mohammed, and the beat's record with a four-second margin, when he was running in the 2.10,04, in the Barcelona Marathon at the end of the year.
Both jones and He ran into the well-known shoe the Nike Vaporfly.
" the vast Majority of the elite are using these shoes. No one knows exactly how big of a difference they make. I think a lot is mental, you have the courage not to run, but if they could make a difference, " explained Mustafa, Mohamed, for the Swedish television SVT after.
Requires that the shoe is prohibited
What's special about it? Nike claims the fact that the shoe reduces the energy consumption by about four per cent, and a number of runners improved their personal best when they are used to it.
Now people are more and more voices to the international association of athletics federations World Athletics ought to act on it. They have already stepped in and banned the more extreme variant of the shoe, the Nike Alphafly, which was used as Eliud Kipchoge was the first time to run a marathon in under two hours.
Yannick Tregaro, has written an open letter to the World Atheltics-president Sebastian Coe, and posted it on Instagram.
”It destroys the credibility of the”, said Tregaro.
”I would suggest that you should ban all of the Nike shoes with the technology, and will delete all the records that have been recorded with it in the end.”

the Response from the Athletics
By Synnerman, which, among other things, training landslagslöparen Anna Lindholm, said in a Elitpodden to the debate on the, Nike Vaporfly has become too much.
" the placebo effect in this pair of shoes, I think it's awesome. Then, it is not a bad one, but... it has got out of hand a little bit, " says Synnerman.
Anna Palmerius agree with you. She is a member of the World Athletics technical committee, and the fact that there is no research which proves that the Nike Vaporfly would provide some advantages in comparison with other shoes.
