    Which brings up the question of whether or not he has every run a "standard" marathon. Anyone know?

    I believe that he also recently won the Pikes Peak Marathon again.

    If Carpenter could have ran a fast(time), flat marathon he would have by now!

    You are correct. So few people worked at the USOC (as I did) who would take on the name racewalker.

    Sorry. You are thinking of Mark; not me.

    I hadn't read your post.
    I didn't realise that you had posted a link to the calculation of VO2 max.
    Sorry for the COINCEDENCE!

    let me guess: you were a biomechanics RA who raced in the Olympic Trials and has written a book on racewalking?

    If you are who I think you are, we met in Honolulu as part of the JIM program.

    I was actually there when they tested Matt Carpenter. It was astounding. In fact, it was so high that at first they didn't believe the results and ran test gas samples through the machine to make sure that it was working correctly. (It was.) Too bad he never really gave the flat marathon a 100% shot.

    John Kruk??!! I'd have thought his VO2 max was closer to 9-point-8!

    Re: Who wins the VO2max Race?

    Well after searching some Track and Field websites, I found the Run-Down Running Portal(which is a fantastic site!) and I found this when trying to calculate my VO2 max:

    Highest Recorded Female (Cross-Country Skier): 74

    Highest Recorded Male (Cross-Country Skier): 94

    Steve Prefontaine,US runner, 84.4

    Frank Shorter, US Olympic Marathon winner, 71.3

    Ingrid Kristiansen, ex-Marathon World Record Holder, 71.2

    Derek Clayton, Australian ex-Marathon World Record holder, 69.7

    Rosa Mota, Marathon runner, 67.2

    Jeff Galloway, US Runner, 73.0

    Paula Ivan, Russian Olympic 1500M Record Holder, 71.0

    Jarmila Krotochvilova,Czech Olympian 400M/800M winner, 72.8

    Greg LeMond, professional cyclist, 92.5

    Matt Carpenter, Pikes Peak marathon course record holder, 92

    Miguel Indurain, professional cyclist, 88

    The Run-Down site is www.run-down.com (for anyone who didn't already know what the address was)
    And if you want to find out your VO2 max scores go to:
    http://www.sirius.on.ca/running/vo2.shtml

    You have to folow the instructions listed above the VO2 max calculator.

    You mean "endurance sports". American pro sports are universally power sports instead of endurance sports, so of course none of them would have high VO2 maxes. Is it any wonder our men have no depth at distance running?

    Norwegian speed skater and 10km record holder Kloss had something really up there, too, if memory serves.
    Seems like there's one outstanding one in every sport, barring most American pro sports.
