which bases on his recent paper

  1. Günther M, Rockenfeller R, Weihmann T, Haeufle DFB, Götz T, Schmitt S. Rules of nature’s Formula Run: Muscle mechanics during late stance is the key to explaining maximum running speed. Journal of Theoretical Biology. Published online August 2021:110714. doi:10.1016/j.jtbi.2021.110714

And there is also a very nice video about running top speed from WIRED’s “Almost Impossible” series
