    Re: ideal sizes for eack event

    For throwers we suggest Trojan Extra Large, for dwarfs the Sheik micro-mini. Vaulters may find any textured variety easier to grasp.

        In the 1984 Olympic Marathon the average height and weight for a participant in the men's marathon was 5'8" and 128 lbs. I remember that fact because in college I ran at exactly height and weight.

            Unfortunately not. 10k was as long as I could hold a 5:00 per mile pace. Only 20 miles short of what was needed to make the US team in 84. (LOL). Maybe thats why I run Ultras now. And unfortunately due to a few years off from the sport in the mid-late 90's, I am no longer 128 lbs (except of the moon).
