“I was greatly surprised and honoured to have this BMC research project linked to my name. Over the past sixty years most of the research conducted into endurance running and its allied subjects has been from Sweden, the Soviet Union, USA and Germany. Much of this has been conducted on PE students and not established runners for convenience sake. These research projects are to be conducted on athletes who have aspirations and this will give the results added credibility. It is hoped that this BMC project will continue in its format and encourage others to join the ranks of Astrand, Gerschler, Costill, Daniels and Noakes.”
